The Charterhouse

Discover more about a lost tube station at the Charterhouse, an almshouse in the heart of the City of London.


Visit the Charterhouse and view an original piece of artwork for a London Underground poster. Painted by Edwin Jothur Lambert between 1910-1919, to publicise Aldersgate Station, later renamed Barbican in 1968. The artwork shows two Brothers at The Charterhouse in the Tudor Great Hall and was recently donated to The Charterhouse by the artist's great grandson.
