Local History







Honeywood Museum in Spring

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, the Borough of Sutton, and a fascinating range of topics beyond. 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.


School Visits - Sorry, it is not currently possible to book a School Visit. A new programme is being devised and is due to be announced shortly. Details will be available HERE

Childhood Room has now fully re-opened

During April we will have a special offer on the two definitive volumes of The History of The Oaks - only available from the Museum's Shop
