Charterhouse

 

 

 

Members and guests will enjoy a tour of the buildings and grounds that make up the Charterhouse. Its history dates back to 1348 and the original Charterhouse, a Carthusian monastery, was built in 1371. Post the dissolution it became a mansion for noblemen. Elizabeth 1 and James1 both used it. In 1611 Thomas Sutton purchased the Charterhouse and established the foundation we know now. It provided alms for 80 ‘brothers’ and also a school. Many famous names have attended the school both before and after its 1872 move to Godalming.

This is a rare chance to have a guided tour around the historic buildings and grounds making up the Charterhouse that are secluded behind the gatehouse on the north side of Charterhouse Square.
