Honeywood Museum is a Grade II listed building next to the picturesque Carshalton Ponds in the heart of Carshalton's historic Conservation Area.
Surrounded by historic buildings and water features the locality forms one of the most interesting and attractive areas in Greater London. The family-friendly museum re-opened in May 2012 after a complete refurbishment following a Heritage Lottery Fund grant. The building dates back to the mid 17th century, with Victorian and Edwardian extensions, including a fine Billiards Room, Drawing Room and Victorian Scullery.
There are exhibitions which tell the fascinating history of the house and the people who lived there, and illustrate the history of the Borough of Sutton, the development of Carshalton from its entry as Aultone in the Doomsday Book to the thriving village it has become, and the historic environs of the River Wandle.
The Museum has an on-going diary of events which illuminate the history of many aspects of 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 range of publications, greetings cards, pocket-money toys and unusual gifts. The Friends support all this, and very much more.
