Horsham Markets

Beautiful Horsham is an award-winning Sussex market town with a stunning pedestrianised centre around the historic Carfax area featuring a charming bandstand and weekly acclaimed local produce markets. The perfect inland base for touring the South Downs, Horsham sits close to Gatwick Airport and is just a short drive from the West Sussex Coast, plus you can pick up excellent rail links to Gatwick, London, Arundel and Littlehampton from Horsham station!

Horsham is a winner of the prestigious Britain in Bloom award and you’ll see why as soon as you visit this most attractive Sussex market town on the edge of both the High Weald and South Downs. Independent shops, best markets, stylish alfresco inns and cafes and pretty central Horsham Park are all highlights in Horsham, and you can explore the town’s medieval market town history and Horsham’s links with the poet Shelly who was born in nearby Sussex village Warnham in 1792 within the central Horsham Museum & Shelley Gallery.

Enchanting market town architecture is plentiful around Horsham from the striking old town hall on Market Square to the 16th and 17th Century houses lining the Causeway and the timber-framed medieval building of the Horsham Museum. Funky new scenes blend with these traditional market town features like The Forum Shopping district and don’t miss Horsham’s weekly Saturday market extravaganza, a positive treasure trove of local produce located on the central Carfax Square.
