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.

We are closed to the public until further notice to protect the older and more vulnerable people living here at the almshouse, where we have taken a series of precautionary measures to ensure their health & safety. Until we can welcome you back again why not book an online event, or shop online here.

The doors are closed, but we're virtually open!... Discover what's on offer online while the Charterhouse is closed to the public View our upcoming events
