A chance to step into a medieval monastery near the Barbican on a Friday evening for a guided tour by flickering candlelight. The Charterhouse has long been hidden from the outside world by a high wall, but a few years ago, the people who still live there started offering tours, and then a museum was opened, and now the tours are a regular event.
Now they also offer evening tours that will take you around the main buildings, a glass of wine in hand, with the tour guide showing you the sights by candlelight.
The tours take in the recently restored Great Chamber, and its other rooms and buildings which tell the story of many significant moments in history.
Tours cost £20 per person and take place on the last Friday of the month over the next three months:
- 28th Jan
- 25th Feb
- 25th March
