The Great Hall, Charterhouse is used as a dining-hall for pensioners.

"The decorations of the interior, a most beautiful example of the Renaissance, are almost entirely the work of the Duke of Norfolk, whose initials, T. N., with the date, 1571, are found in the carvings...Much of the time spent by him in the Charterhouse (or to give it the new name by which it was then known, Howard House) must have been employed in beautifying his residence, for, as we shall see, some of the most interesting portions of the actual buildings date from this period."

Letterpress by Alfred Mark from 'Photographs of Old London'.
