Work with us

Bob

The Charterhouse is an almshouse and museum based near the Barbican. Providing residential care to a community of elderly gentlemen since 1611, our remarkable historic site is also used as an event and filming venue, and, later this year, a museum.

In addition, we have a learning room and learning programme which allows school groups to discover how the Charterhouse has been home to everyone from monks and monarchs to schoolboys and Brothers.

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.
