Honeywood Heritage Plaque/Honeywood in Summer - Pictures Copyright Ivymay Caswell/Elizabeth Price and The Friends of Honeywood Museum


Due to damage caused by the recent weather conditions some rooms will remain closed for the foreseeable future.
These include the Childhood Room and WW2 exhibition.
Please watch for further updates.
A selection of our children's handling toys will be available with our dressing up clothes.
These will include the Brio railway, building bricks, fishing game and Noah's Ark.

Honeywood Museum is a Grade II listed building next to the picturesque Carshalton Ponds. The family-friendly museum re-opened in May 2012 after a complete refurbishment following a grant from the HLF. 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 and the Borough of Sutton. A vibrant educational programme engages with young people attending schools within reach of the Museum. The friendly staff also oversee a delightful collection of Edwardian toys on display in the Childhood Room, a tea room and a shop with a wide range of publications and unusual gifts. The Friends support all this, and very much more.
