Why live in Horsham?

Horsham strikes the perfect balance with its community facilities and green spaces. There’s a market square at The Carfax complete with traditional bandstand, an abundance of shops, a cinema, theatre, leisure centre and a 60-acre park right in the centre of town.

We have an impressive mix of older properties, including historic buildings from the 1400s and 1500s with later additions from the Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian eras and some stunning artistic properties. Head out along The Causeway and you’ll see every style, from 15th century homes to new builds, on one superb road.

Horsham has many great schools, both state and private, junior and senior. Millais, 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 here too, including high street favourites and independent stores and coffee shops. You’ll also find a huge selection of eateries, bars, cafés and pubs in the town and a particularly high density of restaurants along East Street that has given rise to its 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, which frequently plays on the Horsham Cricket Club grounds while the local cricket, football and rugby teams also attract great crowds on match days. If you like walking in beautiful countryside you’ll be spoilt for choice in Horsham while the Southwater Country Park has a Dinosaur Island play area for young families and kayaking and canoeing facilities for older children. The Pavilions in the Park leisure centre has indoor and outdoor heated pools and an aerial adventure course with 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.
