Charlton House illustrates a little-represented phase in the evolution of the English country house, linking the sprawling style of the Tudor age with the compact geometry associated with Inigo Jones. The original oak staircase remains, as do many fireplaces and plasterwork ceilings. 

Three hundred years ago John Evelyn, the diarist, described the prospect from Charlton House as 'one of the most noble in the world, for city, river, ships, meadows, hills, woods and all other amenities.'

  • It's a privilege to be able to involve and enhance this exquisite Jacobean mansion. The friends are dedicated to making this wonderful building even more desirable and maintain its position within the Charlton community. The staff are supremely dedicated and we and the friends try to assist in all aspects of their work.
