About this space

Space virtual tour

The Learning Center is a modern and luminous space conceived as part of the Revealing the Charterhouse project. This contemporary addition to the historic site exemplifies a seamless fusion of old and new, thoughtfully designed to complement the rich heritage of Charterhouse.

The octagonal ceiling coffers, adorned with spotlighting, pay homage to the stunning chapel ceiling in a distinctive and symbolic inversion. This thoughtful design element showcases the centre's commitment to blending the historical with the contemporary, creating an innovative ambience, respectful of its surroundings.

The Learning Center is fully equipped to host a range of purposes, including business meetings, lectures, and presentations. With its adaptability, this modern space can also be transformed into an elegant dining venue, adding a touch of sophistication to any gathering.

Welcome to The Charterhouse, a living testament to centuries of history, nestled between Barbican and Smithfield Market, just north of the iconic Charterhouse Square. Once a Carthusian monastery, this grand site has transformed over time into a private mansion, a boys' school, and, today, an almshouse—a role it continues to fulfill with grace.

The Charterhouse is more than just a venue; it is a journey through time, a story told with grand scales and intricate details. Whether you seek a location that embodies a specific historical period or provides an atmospheric backdrop for a shoot or event, The Charterhouse offers a diverse range of styles, architecture, lighting, and authentic period details.

With its unique advantage in the market, The Charterhouse is a hidden gem waiting to be discovered. Many guests are likely to find this location new, unexpected, and stunning - a venue that stands out in the heart of London. The indoor and outdoor spaces, each with its own unique character, provide countless opportunities for innovative formats and designs.

As The Charterhouse undergoes redevelopment, its main event spaces are now among the most prestigious venues in central London. The vision extends beyond hosting events; it is about creating a permanent and vital entity that contributes to charity and leaves a lasting legacy. The Charterhouse embraces a progressive attitude towards environmental sustainability and fair, ethical work practices.

By choosing one of our highly adaptable and characterful spaces for your event, you directly support this 400-year-old charity and contribute to the preservation of the site for future generations.
