The East Surrey Museum is a small but highly attractive museum dedicated to the preservation and display of artefacts and documents relating to the social history, archaeology and geology of East Surrey from the earliest times to the more recent past.
Conveniently located in the centre of Caterham, a minute's walk from the station and bus routes, the museum is manned entirely by volunteers, many of whom have local knowledge, and is supported largely by donations and a utilities grant from Tandridge District Council.
There is a small shop where you can buy souvenirs and a wide range of Bourne Society and other books on local history.
You and your children will receive a warm welcome from our curator and our stewards, who will be happy to show you around, leave you to browse, or help with any particular enquiries you might have regarding local history.
Free Lunchtime Talk, Wednesday 26th April 2017, 1.15 pm
Gardner's Pleasure Resort, Kenley
The third lunch-time talk in East Surrey Museum’s Spring 2017 Series focuses on a long-forgotten local tourist attraction.
Celebrated local historian Roger Packham will talk about this fascinating resort which offered 'Luncheons, Dinners and Teas at Popular Prices' and invited customers to come 'Up the Steps for Home Comforts and Amusements'.
The talk will last around 15 minutes, and do feel free to bring your lunch. All are welcome and admission is free, although donations are welcomed.
