Charlton HouseOne of the best-preserved Jacobean mansions in the London area, the design of Charlton House is attributed to John Thorpe (1560-1620), the architect behind Holland House in Holland Park. The house and grounds were bought by the Metropolitan Borough of Greenwich in 1925. Originally used as a museum, the house is no longer accessible to the public but it is available to hire. Visitors can experience part of it by using the Mulberry Tea Rooms which is situated in the foyer and by exploring the gardens and grounds, much of which are parks. The tea room is aptly named - the gardens being home to one of the first Mulberry Trees to be planted in England.
