Norman Crypt of the Priory Church

vaulted Norman Crypt beneath the Priory Church of the Order of St John

Descending the steps to the Norman Crypt of the Priory Church of St John is an extraordinary experience. It is hard to believe that you are in the heart of twenty-first century London, for background noise falls away and the only sound to be heard is that of silence. Low lighting glows on the Romanesque and Gothic arches, and the evocative tomb effigies enhance the impression of numinous stillness. This space is reserved for concerts, lectures, services, exhibitions, readings and meetings, and occasional filming of appropriate subjects.
