Horsham is an attractive market town in West Sussex in the South East of England, conveniently located approximately 20 miles from Worthing, Brighton and Guildford. The attractive old area of Horsham centres around the tree-lined Horsham “Causeway” which is regarded as one of the finest streets in Sussex with its lovely, well maintained houses and a resident ghost! The modern side of Horsham is to be found in its excellent transport links to and from Horsham, schools and recreational facilities which include a Horsham theatre, Horsham cinemas, Horsham park, Horsham sports facilities and great range of shops, restaurants and pubs.
