St John Medieval Museum & Coningsby Hospital
Visit the site of The Blackfriars Monastery, which was a Dominican Monastery home of crusaders of the Order of St. John and an ex-serviceman's hospital, now within an attractive rose garden. See the stone Preaching Cross set within the garden, one of the last surviving examples of such a cross. Learn about the foundation of the Coningsby Red Coat Hospital, probably the model for The Chelsea Hospital in London. Explore the Museum, which explains the links between the Crusades, the Knights Templar and The Hospitaller Knights. View the many interesting artefacts in the Museum and also visit the Chapel that is still used today by the Order of St. John.
