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 partly private and can only be visited on one of our our Garden Tours or as part of the National Garden Scheme
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 will be evolving the gardens over time, and she and her team look forward to welcoming you in the Charterhouse gardens on a tour this year.
