Step back 500 years in time by visiting Whitehall, Cheam's stunningly preserved Tudor cottage. This fascinating house features original timbering with wattle and daub, a medieval Cheam pottery display, and a rear garden with a 15th century well. And when you're ready to join the 21st century, there's also an art gallery with contemporary exhibitions, and a tea room with irresistible home-made cakes.
Did you know? In 2009, Whitehall will be hosting a series of talks on the history of Cheam to commemorate 500 years since Henry VIII ascended the throne of England
