Whitehall is closed to the public from 10 April 2016 until the summer of 2017 to allow for a major refurbishment, which includes vital conservation and restoration works to the building and internal adaptations, along with a small extension for a lift to make the house more accessible.
While Whitehall is closed its team will have an active presence at fetes and fairs and will visit local groups and societies. The Friends of Whitehall will also continue to run activities and events in Cheam, particularly at the Parochial Rooms and Cheam Library while Whitehall is closed.
An accredited museum, Whitehall was built around 1500, though the house has undergone significant changes and alterations during its life. Remarkably, between 1741 and 1963 Whitehall was the home of one family, the Killicks and the house has held 18th and 19th-century displays reflecting different periods of its history. As well as having a Tudor hall, parlour and a Victorian kitchen, Whitehall also houses a model of Nonsuch Palace, which once stood nearby but was demolished in the 1680s. It has a designated exhibition space which will host a new programme of activities on reopening in 2017, as well as a tea room which has been voted one of the best in Surrey.
