The Charterhouse, a seven-acre former monastery hidden behind high walls in Clerkenwell has confirmed that it will be resuming tours from Tuesday 1st June.

From that date, there will be two tours a day at 11am and 2:15pm, taking in the buildings or the gardens running Tuesdays to Saturdays.

The site, which dates back to 1348, and includes buildings, interiors and collections dating from each century since had rarely been open to the public until regular tours started a few years ago. Only for the site to close again due to the lockdown.

Something that started before the lockdown, and was completed during it was the complete refurbishment of its Great Chamber, restoring the Elizabethan era decoration to its original appearance.

The recently opened museum will also be part of the tour, and as it’s fairly small, can currently only be visited on the guided tours.

Tours can be booked in advance here.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    My mother used to be a cleaner in the Barts medical school which was located at Charterhouse and one day a professor asked her ” how do you feel about working among dead people?” to which she replied ” well none of them has complained about my cleaning!”
