NOTES: This, the third Freemasons' Hall to be built in Queen Anne Street, is both the headquarters of the United Grand Lodge of England and the principal meeting place for Lodges in London.

NOTES: Construction on Lancaster House, the last great Georgian London mansion, began in 1825 for the Duke of York and Albany, the second son of King George III and was initially known as York House. The exterior was designed by Benjamin Dean Wyatt and was only a shell at the Duke's death in 1827. The house was purchased by the 2nd Marquess of Stafford in 1829 and the interiors were completed by Wyatt, Sir Charles Barry and Sir Robert Smirke by 1840.

It was commissioned by Charles IV in 1357 and the majority of its construction was overseen by his favourite architect Peter Parler. The bridge is decorated by a continuous alley of 30 statues and statuaries, most of them baroque-style, erected around 1700.
