Your first point of information when arriving in the Horsham District should be Horsham's Visitor Information Centre. The Centre is open six days a week offering an extensive range of information for residents and visitors alike. You will find inspiration for day trips, short breaks and longer holidays both locally in the Horsham and Sussex areas and across the British Isles.
The visitor information centre can provide holiday and travel information, visitor accommodation guidance, What's On information on local events and attractions, maps and guides, books, gifts and souvenirs.
The visitor information centre has a range of leaflets suggesting where to have a quintessentially English tea, where to wander around some of the best gardens and plants of Horsham District, or where to walk your dog safely. All are priced at 30p and provide a wealth of information to help you choose. We also have booklets suggesting Day Trips, Walks and Cycle rides around Horsham and its District and suggestions for places to visit where famous people once lived.
We also act as ticket agents for the South of England Show at Ardingly Showground, Cranleigh Show and Wings and Wheels at Dunsfold Airfield.

How to find us
To access the Causeway, cars need to enter via Worthing Road and pass the bus station into Blackhorse way. The Causeway is then on your right hand side. Please note that there is no public parking in the Causeway.
Please go to Horsham Car parks for more information on public car parks in the vicinity of the museum as well as Horsham's park and ride.
Blue Badge Parking
There are 6 disabled bays as you enter the Causeway. You are advised to check the restrictions for time allowed (2-3 hours), display your clocks for the time of your arrival and display your badge on its validity side. Blue Badge holders are also able to park in the Denne Road Car Park at the rear of the museum. From Denne Road car park you would need to go through Pump Alley which provides access to the Causeway and then turn left.
Horsham has direct rail links to London Victoria, London Bridge, Chichester, Bognor and Portsmouth. From Brighton change at Three Bridges and from Worthing change at Ford. From Horsham Railway Station turn left down North Street, cross the road and carry on walking for about five minutes until you go over Chart Way Bridge with the Royal and Sun Alliance building on your left. Once in the Carfax follow the instructions given below.
from the bus station walk into the Forum, past Beales and the coffee shop keeping Sainsbury's car park on your right. Follow the path through Furneaux Walk into the Causeway. You will find the Museum and Art Gallery diagonally to the left.
From the bandstand in the Carfax look towards the Old Town Hall (now Bills Restaurant). The Museum and Art Gallery, painted green, is 50 yards behind the Old Town Hall at the head of the Causeway, which leads down to the Parish Church of St Mary and the Remembrance Gardens.
Passenger drop off/pick-up is best to be made in the Carfax at the off-loading bay immediately adjacent to the bandstand. This delivers passengers directly into the heart of Horsham with a 5 minute walk to the Museum. Coach Parking is available by arrangement through Horsham District Council at Hop Oast Park and Ride. There are no restrictions on time/height/size if notified in advance. Request for coach parking should be emailed in advance to either John.Barrs@horsham.gov.uk or firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01403 733144.
