The Charterhouse

The Charterhouse is situated in Charterhouse Square, off Carthusian Street. The entrance is on the opposite side of the Square as you enter from Carthusian Street, to the right of the Malmaison Hotel. It can be identified by a large black gate in an 18th century building with a lodge. The gate will be open when people arrive and the Porter will let them in. Once inside the precincts of the Charterhouse, follow the “Way in” signs.
