The London Charterhouse
Despite its name, the London Charterhouse is more than simply one building. It’s a group of buildings that are steeped in history and continue to be part of London’s story on a daily basis.
Located in the borough of Islington, the London Charterhouse has occupied this area of London since 1348. Over the centuries, it’s been a monastery, a privately owned mansion house, a private school for boys and an alms house for the elderly (which it still is today).
Learn more about it’s history by visiting the free museum or take a wander around the Great Chamber to get emersed in historic art. If the weather is good, an amble around the beautiful gardens is a must.
