The Charterhouse

The tour will be co-led by VocalEyes describer Tony McBride and Assistant Museum Manager James Spellane.

The Charterhouse’s history goes back to the 14th century, when the land where it stands was acquired as a burial ground. Decades after a Carthusian Monastery was built; followed by a Tudor mansion, a boys’ school, and an almshouse in the 16th century. Today’s building  allows the visitor to wander through history while remaining in the heart of contemporary London.

You can read more about the building and its architecture on the venue page.
