Hospital in Charterhouse was originally a Carthusian Priory
(1371-1538). After a period as a private Tudor mansion, it became, in
1611, a school and an almshouse.
Wesley was a scholar at the school between 1714 and 1720 before he
continued his education at Christ Church, Oxford. A plaque and a statue
commemorating him can be found in Chapel Cloister.
School moved to Godalming in Surrey in 1872 and today Sutton's Hospital
is home for the Brothers of Charterhouse, a community of 40+ retired
single elderly men.
In early 2017 the Charterhouse opened its doors to the public for the first time in its 660 year history.Admission
