Horsham is a market town with a population of 55,657 (2008) on the upper reaches of the River Arun in the centre of the Weald, West Sussex, in the historic County of Sussex, England. The town is 31 miles (50 km) south south-west of London, 18.5 miles (30 km) north-west of Brighton and 26 miles (42 km) north-east of the county town of Chichester.
Nearby towns include Crawley to the north-east and Haywards Heath and Burgess Hill to the south-east. It is the administrative and market centre of Horsham District Council area.
The first historical record of Horsham is from AD 947. The name either originates from “Horse Ham”, meaning a place where horses were kept, or “Horsa’s Ham”, named for a Saxon warrior who was granted land in the area. The town has historically been known for horse trading in early medieval times, iron and brick making up until the 20th century, and brewing more recently. Horsham has grown up around the Carfax, which is a meeting area place of four roads.
To the south of the Carfax is the Causeway. This tranquil street consists of houses erected in the 17th, 18th and early 19th century and is lined with ancient London Plane trees. The Horsham Museum is situated at the northerly end opposite to the recently developed former headquarters of the R.S.P.C.A.. At the south end of the Causeway is the Church of England parish church of St. Mary: Norman in origin, rebuilt in the 13th century and restored in 1864-65 by the Gothic revival architect S.S. Teulon.
The area immediately to the south of the parish church is known as Normandy. It was formerly an area of artisans cottages and an ancient well. Moving south for fifty metres and the River Arun is encountered. On the northern bank is Prewett’s Mill and on the south side is the town’s cricket field. A short walk along the banks of the Arun in a south easterly direction is Chesworth Farm, an area of open public access.
To the north of the Carfax is a large park, known locally as Horsham Park, the remnant of what was formerly the Hurst Park Estate. The park has numerous football pitches, a wildlife pond and tennis courts. Various leisure facilities, including a modern swimming complex and a purpose built gymnastic centre, have been built on land around the park. To the east along Brighton Road is Iron Bridge named after the railway bridge that carries the railway from London Victoria to Littlehampton.
The area consists of mainly Victorian and Edwardian houses to the north of Brighton Road, whilst to the south there are areas of inter- and post-war housing. This area is known as the East Side.

We used Sole Moves to move house on a recommendation and couldn't have been more impressed with the service. Keith and Ash are incredibly hard working, reliable and straightforward to deal with. Their friendly, funny banter was welcome light relief on a very stressful day. We would happily use their service again and recommend to all. Thanks guys, your help was hugely appreciated!Jess Hilier Hassocks
Sole Moves moved a 1 bed flat across town to another 1 bed flat. They were prompt, very helpful and flexible - especially since we had to change a few details after initial booking. They were very friendly chaps and we felt confident that they would respect our property and were trustworthy. Would recommend, very reasonable rates - especially on a SundayChloe Nacci Brighton
