Why live in Horsham?
“Horsham strikes the perfect balance between its community facilities and green spaces. For example, there’s a market square at The Carfax, complete with its own traditional bandstand, an abundance of shops catering for all needs, a cinema, a theatre, a leisure centre and a 60 acre park all there to be enjoyed, right in the centre of town.
The Horsham District benefits from many great schools, both state and private, junior and senior. Millais, Forest Tanbridge House, Farlington, Windlesham House, St Marys and Heron Way all have excellent Ofsted ratings and have received equally positive reviews from pupils and parents.
There’s a good range of shopping on offer here, from the high street favourites (John Lewis at Home, Waitrose) to popular independent stores such as Wakefields Jewellers, which has been in Horsham for more than 100 years, La Vida Boutique, the Esquires coffee shop and Fleurs the ‘master florists’. You’ll also find a huge selection of eateries, bars, cafés and pubs in the town, too. In fact, the particularly high density of restaurants along East Street (including Bills Restaurant, Cote Brasserie, Pizza Express, Wagamamas, Strada, Wabi Japanese Restaurant and Tristan, the first Michelin starred restaurant in town) has given rise to the local nickname ‘Eat Street’.
We have a great tradition of sports in Horsham and, more importantly, of supporting our local teams. Our town is the proud host of Sussex Cricket Club, who frequently play on the Horsham Cricket Club grounds and can be watched by members of the public, while the local cricket, football and rugby teams also attract a cheering crowd on match days.
If you like walking over beautiful countryside you’ll be spoilt for choice here. The Southwater Country Park on the southern edge of town has a relatively new Dinosaur Island play area for young families and kayaking and canoeing facilities for older children, and the Pavillions in the Park leisure centre on Horsham Park (in the centre of town) has both indoor and outdoor heated pools and an aerial adventure course involving ropes and a climbing wall. For more cultural pursuits, the Capitol Theatre and Cinema on North Street has a busy calendar of both theatrical productions and the latest movies for your entertainment.
If you want to live life to the full, you will find everything you are looking for in Horsham. If you think you would like to move here, or you have a local property to sell, the Henry Adams team will be delighted to assist you.”
