About this Event

Hooray for Honeywood!

Honeywood Museum is a Grade II listed building next to the picturesque Carshalton Ponds in the heart of Carshalton's historic Conservation Area. The house dates to the 17th century with Victorian and Edwardian extensions, including a very fine billiards room. Permanent exhibitions tell the fascinating history of the house and the people who lived there, and illustrate the history of the Borough of Sutton and the development of Carshalton.

What's new at Honeywood?

We are reopening with new displays exploring both the local area and the creative response by local artists to the extraordinary recent period we have experienced.

  • The Painted Wandle - Beddington to Mitcham Bridge features artwork from the London Borough of Sutton Museum Collection and is the result of a collaborative project between London Borough of Sutton Cultural Services and The Friends of Honeywood Museum.
  • Lockdown Art - Creativity Released is linked to The Locals: Diaries, a contemporary Archive collecting project aiming at preserving local reflections and experiences of life during the Covid-19 outbreak. This exhibition showcases creative responses in words, film, textiles, sculpture and mixed media, painting and drawing.

What will my visit be like?

Your safety, and that of our staff, is our highest priority. That’s why we’ve introduced timed visits to stagger entry flow and help with social distancing. Visits are 1 hour in duration and for a maximum of 6 people in one group. Combined with a new one way route and enhanced cleaning regime, including hand sanitizers on entry, we are pleased to be welcoming our visitors back safely.

Please note from the 8th of August, face coverings will be made a mandatory requirement for visitors to wear during their visit.

When booking a ticket:

1 ticket per group per day (max. 6 from a single household).

What facilities are there at Honeywood?

Toilets will be available to visitors. Disabled access is available on the ground floor only. An independently run takeaway tea room service is available, with limited tables by the ponds. We cannot guarantee a table will be available.
