This place has a charm to it. Presents local history, offers a lot of events for smaller children and group workshops during day time. Every visit requires a tea room stop. Fantastic cream tea!

A recommended here as it is packed with local history. I won’t go into detail, it would take far too long. A picturesque setting adjacent to Carshalton ponds, with a café where you can enjoy a lovely afternoon tea.

A brilliant local museum based in an grand old home. The museum focuses on the history of the building and the family’s that have owned it and the history of the local area. Really worth a look around.

Highly recommended. Beautiful watercolour painting from the early 1900. Do watch the video as you come one to understand the significant of the cottage.
