SightseeingThe Charterhouse

The Charterhouse has a rich history dating back to 1348. Discover the City of London’s hidden gem and explore its extraordinary story.

Previously hidden in plain sight by a high border wall, the handsome Charterhouse has only been open to the public since 2017.

The Charterhouse’s history dates back to 1348 when the land was used as a burial ground during the Black Death. In 1371, the Charterhouse was built and has since served as a monastery, private mansion, boys school and an almshouse, which it remains to this day.

The Charterhouse is now open for pre-booked tours which will take place at 11:00 and 14:15 Tuesday-Saturday. Tours must be booked to visit the rest of the site, as it is still home to a small community of retired residents called the Brothers.

The private gardens will open to the public on Wednesday 28th July and Thursday 26th August 5.30pm-8.30pm. You must pre-book.
