BSL Charterhouse Tour
A British Sign Language tour of the Charterhouse led by our volunteer, the Deaf BSL Guide, exclusively for Deaf and hard of hearing visitors, highlighting key features of the Charterhouse and bringing to life its 600 years of history, using BSL.
Discover the evocative remnants of the medieval monastery and the courtyards of the opulent Tudor mansion. Our tours cast new light on well-known stories from British history and introduce our visitors to the unique heritage of the historic Charterhouse – living the nation’s history since 1348. (90 minutes) Includes free tea and coffee in the Portal Trust Learning Centre following the tour.
The tour will take in the Great Hall where the Brothers sit together to eat their meals, the newly refurbished Great Chamber where Queen Elizabeth I held court during the first days of her reign, Wash-house Court associated with the medieval Carthusian monks and Master’s Court which reveals the opulence of Lord North’s Tudor mansion.
