Visit this 14th-century almshouse and former school in the City of London. Continua


A hidden jewel in the heart of London, stands in quiet Tudor splendour beside its modern neighbour, The Barbican. It was founded as a Carthusian Monastery in 1371 by Sir Walter de Manny, a friend of the Black Prince. Following this the property came into aristocratic ownership.

Thomas Sutton bought the Charterhouse in 1611 and endowed it as a school and almshouse. It remains an almshouse to this day, home to 43 single elderly men and women who all have their own accommodation. There is free admission to the museum and chapel, and tours which highlight the Royal connection, and include the Great Chamber, the Great Hall, the Norfolk Cloisters and the Chapel.
