We would love to welcome you to the Charterhouse

The Charterhouse site between Barbican and Farringdon dates back to 1348 - and has been formally open to the public since January 2017, but we know that thousands of locals who live and/or work in the area still don't know it's there!  There are so many people who walk down Clerkenwell Road every day - and don't know what's hidden behind that great imposing wall with ivy spilling over the top.

The Charterhouse is both an extraordinary piece of history to have on your doorstep - and it's a flourishing community for elderly people too.  Since the Black Death, the site has been a monastery, a great Tudor mansion, a boys school, and the almshouse which remains to this day.

If you've never visited - why not take advantage of our Ten Minute Tales - bite-size highlights from the Charterhouse's turbulent history every Wednesday at 12.30pm - and they're FREE.  If you're around, why not just drop in!
