The journey of a lifetime

Becoming a Freemason is like going on a journey: from joining as an Entered Apprentice, it typically takes one or two years to become a Master Mason, with each of the three stages marked by a special ceremony.

Am I eligible?

Any man over the age of 21 may join regardless of ethnic group, political views, economic standing or religion although he is expected to have a faith. Students over 18 can join one of 55 University Lodges. UGLE oversees lodges in England, Wales, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands, whilst Scotland and Ireland have their own Grand Lodges.

How do I join?

If you don't know anyone who is a member and that you can talk to, then your first step is to approach your local lodge or one which shares your interests - there are over 7,000 to choose from - or check out our Contact Us page and let us put you in touch with your local lodge.
