Provinces, Districts & Groups

Lodges meeting in London (an area generally within a 10-mile radius of Freemasons’ Hall), are administered by the Metropolitan Grand Lodge of London, whilst those meeting outside London, and within England, Wales, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands, are grouped into 47 Provinces, whose boundaries often correspond to those of the old Counties.

Lodges that meet outside England, Wales, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands are grouped into 33 Districts, and five Groups.
