The local area guide to living in Horsham

If you’re looking for a beautiful and bustling town with a thriving sense of community, then cast your attention to Horsham. Long term winner of ‘Britain in Bloom’, it’s not hard to see why the town’s victories remain unchallenged. From Horsham’s picturesque cobbled streets in the older markets, to the various gardens and Victorian-style buildings which encompass Horsham’s traditional quaintness perfectly, Horsham itself is truly the gem of the county of West Sussex.

While the town is not well known for its nightlife, unlike its neighbours Crawley and Brighton, the daily life in and around Horsham compensates for this. The various events and festivities thrown all year round serve to emphasise how strong the bonds in the community are.

With longer life expectancy than any of the neighbouring towns or villages, not to mention the low crime rates and financial stability of those lucky enough to live in the centre of Horsham, or indeed its neighbouring villages of Littlehaven and Roffey, it should come as no surprise that the town is ranked so highly among Britain’s best places to live.

Information about the local residents

Given its location on the railway lines between Southampton, London, and Three Bridges – which offers further transport links to and from Brighton – Horsham is particularly popular among commuters to the larger cities. The population of 50,550 has an average age of 42; however the population itself is highly diverse. While boasting an appeal to those wishing to settle down, the town also appeals to the younger generation for its highly desirable commuting location and excellent educational institutions, with young people travelling from as far as London to attend the local College of Richard Collyer.

Nearby schools

The great news for those wishing to raise a family in Horsham is that, despite potentially being a little too quiet for the liking of many teenagers, the educational institutes on offer boast excellent Ofsted reports. Primary schools include Heron Way and Holbrook, while the secondary schools on offer include the co-educational Tanbridge House School, the all-girls Millais School and the all-boys Forest School; all three of which have high Ofsted ratings.

The local College of Richard Collyer, consisting of several attractive Victorian-style buildings offers excellent quality sixth form education, and has received positive student feedback for satisfaction, as well as repeated ‘Outstanding’ reports from Ofsted.

Getting around

Horsham’s busy train station offers frequent and direct commuting links between Southampton and London. There is a fast train which stops at the main stops between Horsham and London Bridge, or a slower service which covers the neighbouring villages and towns of Ifield, Crawley, Faygate, and Littlehaven.

Gatwick Airport is a mere 12 miles away and is easily accessible by car, train or even the hourly bus service from the train station. The major airport offers flights around Europe and to the US.

The town lies between the A24, the A264/29 and the A281; the three combining to provide easy access to the motorway and the coast for those with their own forms of transport.

Local shops

Despite the town being fairly calm and quiet, there are several shops packed into the large town centre. These include Wilkos, Topshop, Waterstones and various charity and book shops. Next to this is the ‘Swan Walk’ shopping centre, inside of which can be found further shops and restaurants, including Curry’s and BHS.

The local social club offers frequent events and The Capitol is a good source of entertainment; providing theatrical and cinematic events on a weekly basis to keep the younger population entertained.

Also for the youth, Horsham Park can be located to the North and the Pavilions in the Park is also a main attraction, offering various indoor and outdoor swimming pools, laser tag and a bowling alley.
