Honeywood Museum in Spring - Picture Copyright © Friends of Honeywood Museum 2018


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.


News/Updates

Accessibility - Honeywood Museum does its utmost to accommodate those with additional needs. ​The ground floor (including the Shop and the Tea Room) is fully wheelchair-accessible, though access to the floors above is restricted. A wheelchair-accessible toilet is available. ​There is a blue badge parking bay in Honeywood Walk, adjacent to the Museum.

If you were disappointed by not obtaining tickets for March's sell-out talk by John Phillips on The Ponds - Houses and People 1890-1914 you may wish to be aware that it will be updated and repeated on 28 February 2019 covering the longer period 1860-1913.

June's William Morris talk is now sold out - why not book early for our forthcoming events?
