The National Trust in association with Time Out Live present 'Behind Closed Doors', working with institutions to view the gems within the heart of London, currently hidden from view.
Tucked behind the brutalist Barbican lies the historic Charterhouse: once a medieval burial ground, it has by turns been a monastery, Tudor mansion, school and almshouse, as it remains to this day.
At this event, the first in the series, discover the Charterhouse's beautiful buildings and remarkably eclectic history – from playing host to Elizabeth I and surviving the Blitz to taking a major role in the development of football.
This tour shows parts of the historic Carthusian monastery at present closed to the public. The tour concludes in the Fuller's City Pride Pub.
