St John's Gate

Built in 1504 as the southern gateway to the priory of the medieval order of the Knights Hospitalers of St John. The order was revived in 1831 as St John Ambulance and is well known for its hospital and ambulance charitable work. The Gate now houses the Museum and Library of the Order of St John and the most comprehensive collection of relics of the Medieval order outside Malta.

Near here is the Priory church rebuilt 1721-3 on the site of the Knights Hospitalers round church consecrated 1185, of which only its remarkable Norman Crypt remains.
