Working here

The Charterhouse is an almshouse and museum based near the Barbican, providing residential care to a community of elderly people since 1611.

Situated on 7 acres in central London, the majority of our buildings date back to the Tudor period, with elements of medieval, Victorian and more modern architecture. With links to some of the most famous people and periods throughout English history, this is an exciting time to join the organisation.
