The Charterhouse has been living the nation’s history since 1348. In that time it has served as a monastery, private mansion, boys school and an almshouse, which it remains to this day.

CORONAVIRUS - PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT: As from Tuesday 17th March we are closing the Charterhouse to the public until further notice as a precaution to protect the older and more vulnerable people living here at the almshouse. If you have an enquiry and/or have a booking, please find further information here.
