The Charterhouse

The Charterhouse only recently opened to the public in January 2017 and it is well worth a visit.

I did the ‘Brothers Tour’ which means that one of the people who are recipients of the almshouse takes you on a guided tour around The Charterhouse and shares their own knowledge and history of the building.

The Charterhouse has been on the site it stands on today in Clerkenwell since 1348 and has been a monastery, private mansion, boys school and almshouse which is what it remains today.

The Museum is free to visit, really informative and takes you through the history of The Charterhouse – really well curated.

There are lots of different tours including the Brothers Tour which I did, a Garden tour or one that also looks at Crossrail – these all start for as little as £10 per person and last anywhere from one hour.
