Local History







Honeywood Museum in Summer - Picture Copyright Julian Heath Photography 2017

Honeywood Museum is a Grade II listed building next to the picturesque Carshalton Ponds in the heart of Carshalton's Conservation Area. The family-friendly museum re-opened in May 2012 after a complete refurbishment following an HLF grant. It has beautifully restored period details including the Edwardian Billiards Room, Drawing Room and Bathroom. There are exhibitions which tell the fascinating history of the house and the people who lived there, and an on-going diary of events which illuminate the history of Carshalton, the Borough of Sutton, and a fascinating range of topics beyond. Look out for the delightful collection of Edwardian toys on display in the Childhood Room and visit the lovely tea room and the Museum's shop with its wide range of publications and unusual gifts. The Friends support all this, and very much more. Entry is FREE.


The seaside continues at Honeywood! The sandpits in the garden will be open every Wednesday and Friday 14:00-17:00 (weather permitting). Come and play in the sand, there are plenty of buckets and spades available and there will also be crafts with a seaside theme
