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.

Excellent place to step back to the XVI Century is Cheam's surviving timber framed mansion house. Long known as 'The Meeting House' as Elizabeth I was said to have dismounted and had a chat with a Nobel within its walls. A perfectly believable story as Nonsuch Palace was then a short ride away. The Palace has gone, but Whitehall is... More

Despite the rain, the scenery was lovely,good views from all the windows, and nice and warm inside. The food was exceptional and the atmosphere great. The steps to the toilets are worth a look,they are so worn with foot traffic over many many years. Well worth a visit and popular for weddings.

My husband and our 2 year old had recently moved to the area, when I took said 2 year old for a walk one Friday. I happened to notice some slightly unconfident and faded signage outside saying something about Tea. I love anything to do with having tea and thought the building looked like it was built when god was... More

This is a lovely old building set in a pretty village setting. Wonky floors and walls, plenty of history but also a small tea room for refreshments. Located on the edge of Nonsuch and Cheam Parks in a village with a variety of cafes, restaurants and shops.

Well worth a view in the house and in the tea room and nice just to look at! A very peaceful and delightful place. Also a 'friends of Whitehall' group. In a pretty part of the village, also a more tranquil alternative to the park cafe if you are walking in Nonsuch park.
