Museums and Historic Houses
Sutton has three Accredited Museums in the borough - Honeywood, Little Holland House and Whitehall
Sutton's Museum and Heritage Service exists to preserve and promote Sutton's heritage, ensuring it is accessible, informative, creative and inspirational for local people, and recognising that it is a unique and valuable resource which fosters citizenship, civic pride and a sense of belonging.
Sutton has three Accredited Museums - Honeywood in Carshalton, Little Holland House in Carshalton Beeches and Whitehall in Cheam.
Every year Sutton Museum and Heritage Service organises around a hundred activities including exhibitions, schools visits, birthday parties, local history walks and talks to increase interest in local heritage and educate and inform people. We look after the Council's museum collection and are responsible for the care and opening to the public of five historic buildings: Whitehall in the heart of Cheam Village; Honeywood, next to the ponds in Carshalton; Little Holland House - an Arts & Crafts style house in Carshalton Beeches; the Upper Mill in The Grove Park, Carshalton; and the Dovecote in Beddington Park.
Honeywood Museum re-opened in June 2012 following a comprehensive refurbishment partly funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
