Built in 1371, the ex-plague pit became a monastery, mansion and almshouse before opening as a museum in 2017.

Originally a plague pit in 1348, The Charterhouse was built in 1371 to be a Carthusian monastery before becoming a mansion, a boys’ school and an almshouse and then opening as a museum in 2017. It’s still lived in by ‘Brothers’ (although now both male and female), and they will give you guided tours of this magnificent building.
