Welcome to the

Carshalton Water Tower &

Historic Garden Trust Website


The Water Tower is a unique Grade II listed early 18th century garden building sited in the grounds of Carshalton House in Surrey.



As the name suggests, this contained a water-powered pump, which supplied water to Carshalton House and the fountains in its garden. However, the building was and is much more than this as it contains a suite of rooms such as the Saloon, the Orangery and a splendid early 18th century bathroom with a tile lined plunge bath.

Within this site you can find out what

makes up all aspects of the Trust.



Aside from the Water Tower, there is the surrounding garden including the Hermitage and Folly Bridge.

All this is managed voluntarily by the Friends of Water Tower & The Historic Garden Trust.



Our site includes, upcoming events, current opening times, directions, contact information.

Also, information on how to arrange a private tour or to hire the Water Tower for your own particular needs.
