Tudors at the Charterhouse
School Trips @ The Charterhouse
Our inspiring schools programme offers wonderful opportunities for pupils of all ages. Developed in consultation with the Museum of London, we offer a host of activities in our uniquely historical setting. We provide a range of workshops for Primary, Secondary and A Level pupils involving a guided tour and creative workshop. All sessions pivot on the History curriculum but incorporate a cross-curricular approach with themes linked to Art, English and Religious Education.
