A Portrait fit for a Queen, family workshop

Draw the Queen Red. Queen Elizabeth I has arrived at the Charterhouse on the way to her coronation. Visitors will enjoy an audience with the future Queen and discover why she needs her portrait painted. But don’t forget, the portrait needs to look it’s best — it needs to portray her majesty with splendour, power, and, of course, beauty. Come and draw a portrait fit for a queen!

Ages: 8+

Cost: 1 adult + 1 child £2 / 1 adult + 2 children £4 / 1 adult + 3 children £6

Family Tour

Join us on a journey through the Charterhouse as we look for Thomas Sutton’s missing Talbot greyhounds. Discover medieval monks, regal royals, terrible Tudors and naughty schoolboys as we search high and low for cuddly, teddy Talbots. Can you help us find them all? Family Tours take place once a month – book early for a fun and educational half-term or school holiday activity! Children go free. £10 per adult.

Design your own coat of arms

Here’s an idea for children and for teachers – a design project that combines history with talking about your own family and what makes it special.  Get creative with our ‘Design a coat of arms’ activity – and if you send us your designs, we’ll choose our favourite and send you a cuddly soft Talbot dog!
