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
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
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.
Friends support all this, and very much more.
Due to water damage
caused by June's extreme wet weather the Childhood Room will remain
closed for the foreseeable future.
A selection of 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.
