Visit Carshalton Water Tower to see for yourself this impressive building with the 18th century sunken bath, the remains of the restored water wheel and the view from the roof looking out over the grounds of Carshalton House and the surrounding area.
Usually the Tower opens on Sunday Afternoons after Easter until the end of September. This is subject to volunteers being available.
Our 2023 regular Sunday openings have now concluded for the year
We will communicate our 2024 season once it has been finalised but we usually open from after Easter until the last Sunday in September.
