Visit Us

In January 2017 the Charterhouse opens its doors to the public for the first time since its foundation in 1348.

During this phase in our story we look forward to welcoming you to help us shape this exciting venture before our official opening later in the year. We hope you will come and preview the new museum to discover our fascinating story and share your opinions on all that we have to offer.

Planned closures: The museum will be closed from 11.30am to 1pm on Saturday 11 February due to a Brother’s funeral taking place in the Chapel. The 11.30am tour will take place as usual.


Our museum is free of charge.

You may wish to combine your visit to the museum with a tour of the site. Please see our Tours page for booking information

We are open from 11am Tuesday to Sunday, with last admission at 4.45pm
