The Black Death

Explore one of London’s only surviving plague pits at the Charterhouse. Created by Sir Walter Manny during the 1348-19 Black Death, the Charterhouse is home to the largest mass grave in London. Hear about the epidemic before discovering causes, cures and consequences in this exciting session.

Hands-on Tudors

The Reformation under King Henry VIII forever changed life at the Charterhouse. Explore our former monastery and hear all about medieval monks before discovering Henry’s VIII’s personal reasons for a new religious order. Then, discover Tudor food, architecture and décor alongside the stories of those charged with keeping a grand Tudor mansion running.

Enjoy an onsite object handling session to consolidate learning before a self-directed gallery visit at the Museum of London.

Fit for a Queen

Our popular Queen Elizabeth I session can be tailored and offered for Key Stage 2. Enjoy an audience with the future Queen as a costumed interpreter brings her to life in her first throne room. But, don’t forget, the house needs to look it’s best — from food to laundry, dress to décor, lend a hand to ensure the Charterhouse is fit for a Queen!
