Friday 19 January – Crossrail and the Charterhouse Tour

Designed for those who want to find out more about the medieval history of the site and recent Crossrail excavations, we are delighted to announce our brand new tour offer for 2018!

From the Black Death to the founding of a Carthusian monastery to London’s newest railway, discover the secrets that lie behind, or rather underneath, the Charterhouse. As Crossrail tunnelled its way across London, the remains of a 14th century plague pit were unearthed. Following on from her series of SOLD OUT walking tours for the Museum of London in summer 2017, join London Town Tours guide Julie Chandler to find out about the tunnelling, station design, the trains, the archaeology, and how Crossrail impacted life at Charterhouse on this unique tour.

Tours start at 10:30am and last approximately 75 minutes.

Tours cost £20 per person.

Tuesday 10 April – Garden Tour

Join Claire Davies, Head Gardener at the Charterhouse, for a rare opportunity to enter our enchanting and secret garden. In April spring will be in the air and many of the bulbs will be in bloom. The glorious magnolia trees should be displaying their splendour as well as the wisteria.  There will be plenty of colour in the beds and it is very much an all year round garden, so it is constantly changing and there is always something to look at.

The next garden tour is on Tuesday 10th April  from 10.45 to 11.45am. Tickets cost £20 per person.

‘many wonderful plants and planting ideas – will unashamedly steal’, ‘it was stunning!’
