This is a magnificent house at Carshalton Ponds, in the museum you can explore the drawing room, billiards room and Victorian scullery. Experience the history of Sutton and industry on the River Wandle and learn about Carshalton’s steady evolution from the hamlet of Aultone, to the Muli-cultural and thriving place it is today.
This busy High Street is pedestrianised and runs north to south through Sutton proper. This thoroughfare existed even when Sutton was just a rural village and was a stop for coach traffic on the London to Brighton Turnpike. An old milestone in the High Street shows the distance to Whitehall (11 miles) and the Royal Exchange (12 miles). There’s a multicultural choice of patisseries, restaurants, bars and cafes. Many of the shops are in two covered centres, Times Square and the St Nicholas Centre. With parking in multiple locations this is a good way to spend an afternoon
Right in the middle of Cheam Village is Whitehall, a lovely weatherboard house that has a history going back to the turn of the 16th century. Whitehall is a museum open for free on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. Exhibitions go into the history of the house and its residents, you can learn more about Nonsuch Palace, stop by the tearoom or walk in the beautiful garden.
Due to the chalky soil Mayfield was once dubbed the Lavender Capital of the World, there was a thriving lavender trade here from the 1700s up to the 1900s. The tradition was revitalized in the early 2000s when a 25-hectare plot was replanted with two varieties. The perfect time to visit is from mid to late-June until the beginning of September.
These are just some of the wonderful places to spend an afternoon with the people who matter most to you. We hope you have a great time with your loved ones!
