The Charterhouse gardens have been designed in an English country garden style featuring roses, herbaceous borders, ancient mulberry trees and a small pond. Various garden herbs found here are still used in the kitchen today. The gardens are for the private use of the Brothers, but can be visited on one of our Garden Tours or Open Garden events.
The gardens as you see them today were designed by Claire Davies, Head Gardener from 2009 to 2018. Together with Brother Tim Epps she has published a beautiful book of photography revealing the garden’s transformations season by season. You can buy ‘Behind walls’ here.
Our new Head Gardener is Kate Robinson, who arrived with a wealth of experience from managing a large estate to developing and caring for the gardens at the Geffrye Museum. Kate is already adding her own touches, with help from some of the Brothers and volunteers, and she and her team look forward to welcoming you in the Charterhouse gardens on a tour this year.
