16th March - 31st May 2020 | 12:31am - 5:00pmTo help protect the older and more vulnerable residents of the almshouse here at the Charterhouse, who are our first priority, we are closing the Museum and Gardens to the public until further notice. We hope you understand our precautions, and we will update the website with any further developments. In the meantime we will look at opportunities to hold some events, where appropriate, outdoors in Charterhouse Square. If you have an existing booking please contact us at email@example.com to rearrange. We are still taking provisional bookings for events and tours later in the year.

April House & Garden Tour: postponed
9th April 2020 | 10:45am - 1:00pm Spring at the Charterhouse! A rare opportunity to both enter the enchanting secret gardens of the Charterhouse with Head Gardener Kate Robinson and one of the Brothers, and also take a tour of our extraordinary buildings with one of our expert guides. The seven-acre site was hidden away for more than 650 years, and now for the first time can be seen as a combined tour on a few selected dates during the year. Discover this historic former monastery and Tudor palace, still housing a community today as a flourishing almshouse, and a collection of courtyard gardens which gradually unfold, cleverly reflecting different moods and providing colour and interest throughout the seasons. Tickets £30. We are sorry to have to cancel this House & Garden tour, but hope soon to be taking bookings for later in the year.
