Work with us
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.
Would you like to volunteer, meet interesting people and gain skills?
Would you like to develop your gardening skills in a garden of historical importance?
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.
As a Garden Volunteer you would be involved in general maintenance tasks working alongside a team of staff and volunteers, helping us look after our extensive grounds and gardens for our visitors and members of the community. If you are free on Mondays or Thursdays and would like to share your love for horticulture, please see the role description for further information.
