Heritage Pathway Visit & Museum Workshop: Revealing the Coventry Charterhouse

This term’s Heritage Pathway trip will be to the Charterhouse in Coventry. Commonly associated with the post- World War II rebuilding and the ‘‘concrete collar’’ of the ring road encircling it, Coventry’s rich medieval heritage is often overlooked. Among the City’s medieval gems is the Charterhouse, a fourteenth-century building and the only former Carthusian monastery in the country with in-situ interiors.

Following a multi-million-pound restoration effort over several years, the Charterhouse and its surrounding parkland have recently reopened as a unique visitor attraction, offering everything from historic tours to silent discos! During our visit, we will hear about the history and the future of the Charterhouse from staff at the Historic Coventry Trust, the organisational body responsible for managing the site. We will also have an opportunity to critically evaluate the Charterhouse’s learning offer and fundraising activities through bespoke workshops with the team.

Places are strictly limited and allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. We will be travelling by coach which will pick us up outside the Radcliffe Humanities Building. Full pick-up times will be shared at a later date.
