Heritage Houses

Whitehall Historic House and Honeywood Museum are open: Thursdays to Saturdays, 10am - 5pm. We’re excited to give our guests an enjoyable day in our magnificent buildings. You can book your visit through our eventbrite page where you can also see what new exhibitions, events and fun family activities we’ll have available. Time limits on your duration in the house have been removed so you can enjoy our museums at your leisure; walk-in appointments are also available. 

Little Holland House is currently closed until further notice due to project works.

What will my visit be like?

We encourage our visitors to act responsibly in mitigating risks to protect themselves and others. One-way systems and social distancing restrictions have been removed from Whitehall Historic House and Honeywood Museum. We expect and recommend visitors wear face coverings in indoor settings and regularly wash their hands with soap and water or use the hand sanitiser available throughout the building. We continue to operate an enhanced cleaning schedule.
 
We would love to see photos of you enjoying your visit. Post your pictures online and tag us on Twitter or Instagram (@SuttonHeritage) and use #ExperienceSuttonHeritage. We will feature some of our favourite photos on our social media channels. Follow Sutton Heritage on Facebook, Instagram & Twitter for the latest updates and enjoy an assortment of activities and experiences, such as downloadable activities sheets.
