Over its long history, the Charterhouse has witnessed many of the events that have shaped our nation. Built in 1371, the Charterhouse was originally a Carthusian monastery which flourished throughout the later medieval and early Tudor period. With the dissolution of the monasteries, the Charterhouse became a mansion for wealthy noblemen and then a charitable foundation, which it remains today.
