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.


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.
