Architecture Tour

Following its success during London Festival of Architecture we are scheduling more dates for our new Architecture Tour. Join one of our expert guides to explore the many architectural surprises at the Charterhouse.

Tudor brick juxtaposed against medieval stone, windows and doorways recycled into modern entrances, elegant Victorian functionality and 1950s innovation; every element of these historic buildings breathes a story about the visionaries who have contributed to this remarkable estate, from Henry Yevele to Eric Parry and Michael Hopkins.
