Brother’s tour

Come and discover more about the Charterhouse with a behind the scenes tour led by one of the resident Brothers.  These tours are given from the perspective of each individual Brother and therefore no two tours are the same. They provide an in-depth look at the long history of the site and the lifestyle of the Brothers through the centuries and are a unique opportunity to learn more about the nuances of this fascinating historical gem hidden in the heart of London.

Tours cost £15 per person and last up to two hours.

Tours take place on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 2.15pm.

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.

Seating is available at most of the stops on the tour.
