“Thank you for being so helpful and for making our conference such a pleasant day. Everybody loved the venue – and they are a discerning group of people who have very high standards. The Curator’s fascinating and appropriate choice of artefacts was much commented upon. Your volunteers were splendid and very knowledgeable. I would certainly highly recommend the Museum of the Order of St John as a conference venue.”
National Trust

“Just a quick line to thank you and your colleagues for allowing us to host such a successful event last night. The organisation was second to none and the help and support we had from St John’s staff was fantastic. I also lost count of the number of complimentary comments I received from guests about the venue.”

“My very grateful thanks to you for the excellent venue and service. The evening was an extreme success. Guests were enamoured with the venue, the catering and the conversation.”
Underline Events Group

“The committee was overwhelmingly in favour of the Museum over other locations I had scouted. Obviously your location and the beauty of the building could hardly be matched but it was your helpfulness and positive attitude towards our endeavour that had particularly won them round. I cannot emphasise enough how much your own attitude to our booking and the concert really made your venue so wonderful a place to perform. Thank you again for your above-the-call-of-duty additional facilitating for the latecomers.”
Exmoor Singers in London

You were a pleasure to deal with. All the staff were polite, friendly and professional. Thank you for all your help and support in making this event such a success.”
Wesleyan Assurance Society

“I wanted to express my thanks and, specifically, those of my President for the use of your wonderful venue last night. The President was delighted with the turn out (the highest for a summer party in the last 6 years!) and many of the Fellows said to me and my colleague that they had thoroughly enjoyed the evening and would come back for a fuller visit in the future.”
Medical Society of London

“We want to express our deepest thanks for your organisation and efficiency on the day of our wedding at the Museum of the Order of St John. I really appreciate efficiency! Thank you also for answering my many minor questions prior to the event, it was absolutely perfect on the day. All staff at the Museum were really helpful and we are delighted to have had our wedding ceremony with you.”

Thank you again to you and your team. We had an amazing day. So many people have complimented us on the choice of venue, it really is a special place.”
Helen and Ed

“Thank you so much to all the people at the Museum who made such an effort to make the day so wonderful; we had the best of days and the Museum was a much-commented-on element of our wedding. I thought it looked magnificent decked out in all that beautiful foliage and the choir and the quartet commented that the acoustics in the venue were superb.”

“A very quick note to say a big thank you for all your help on our very special day – it was truly wonderful and made far more hassle-free by you and the staff at the Museum. Our guests LOVED the venue and so did we. Thank you.”

“I just wanted to thank you very much for your part on Saturday night. The venue was perfect and everyone was hugely impressed with it all. I do hope that some will return to look in more detail. You have been most helpful and I really appreciated your help. The evening was a huge success and thank you!”

“We couldn’t have been happier with the venue – everyone was extremely friendly and accommodating and were a big part of why the reception went so smoothly and had such a lovely laid-back atmosphere. The Chapter Hall looked beautiful and the Council Chamber was a perfect drinks space.”

“What a splendid day we had on Saturday; the Museum of the Order of St John is a wonderful venue for a wedding. I can’t say a big enough thank you to you and all of your staff who were an absolute delight; not just endlessly helpful, but also wonderfully friendly. They all helped make the wedding setting-up a very jolly part of the day.”

“We just wanted to write again and say how absolutely fantastic everything about our party on Saturday was. We couldn’t have chosen a more efficient, friendly and helpful venue. We are so delighted to have been fortunate enough to have had two events at St John’s Gate. We really hope to be able to have some sort of event with you again in the very distant future! Such wonderful memories! Thank you again.”
