The Charterhouse has been living the nation’s history since 1348. Founded as a Black Death plague pit and medieval monastery, the site became a Tudor mansion, a boys’ school, and an almshouse, which it remains to this day. In January 2017, we opened our doors to the public for the first time in our 660-year history in partnership with the Museum of London. Our remarkable site now houses a brand-new museum, public square and the Sir John Cass’s Foundation Learning Centre.
We offer a range of workshops for Primary, Secondary and A Level pupils that support History, English and Religious Education as well as dedicated learning programmes for special schools.
From monks to monarchs, discover the fascinating stories of those who have helped shape the history of our nation.
