Charterhouse Square, EC1M 6AN
The Charterhouse has been living the nation’s history since 1348. Founded as a medieval monastery of the Carthusian order, the site became a Tudor mansion, a boys’ school, and an almshouse, which it remains to this day.
Opening to the public in early 2017, it provides a wonderful opportunity for families to play, explore and learn together. Families can enjoy a range of family-friendly workshops in school holidays or pick up one of our free self guided resources at weekends.
Create a mask of Henry VIII and Elizabeth I or make a whole handful of historical finger puppets! Explore art and architecture with one of our family tours and create a colourful masterpiece for our Art Wall. From monks to monarchs, we truly have seen it all. Where else can you view a Black Death skeleton, visit a Catholic priory, stand in the same spot where Elizabeth I and James I held court and learn about Victorian schooling?
The aim of our learning programme is to inspire creativity through the stories of the Charterhouse and to inspire curiosity about the people who have lived, worked and studied here. Join us.
