The Charterhouse has been home to many significant moments in London's history since 1371. It has been a monastery, grand mansion, boys school and an almshouse, which it remains to this day.

Christmas Closing: Please note that the Museum and Shop will be closed from 19th December 2021 and will reopen at 10.30am on Tuesday 4th January 2022. Why not book a tour for the new year? Find out more here.
