Horsham Museum & Art Gallery is closed until Summer 2021, as such we will not be hosting the Charity Christmas Card shop this year.

We are working hard behind the scenes to improve our customer offer but are happy to answer queries and research questions in the meantime. Contact the team via email at museum@horsham.gov.uk.

Heritage trails

See Horsham District's history first-hand with our self-guided heritage trails. Each trail is dedicated to a different area of the District and includes sites of special interest and stories from all eras of the area's past.

The trails project is supported by Horsham District Community Partnerships Forum and The National Lottery Heritage Fund, and local history societies.

If you or your group would like to create your own trail, download this free Heritage Trails Resources Guide for everything you need to get started.
