Tour accessibility

Please note that the historic buildings of the Charterhouse include some uneven surfaces and a cobbled courtyard. We therefore advise visitors to wear sensible footwear and dress appropriately.

There are easy alternative routes for wheelchair users to all stops on the tour except for the Norfolk Cloister, which, due to the building work not yet being completed, has limited accessibility via a doorway with two steps down.
