Why Move to Horsham?
A market town which sits on the upper reaches of the River Arun on the fringe of the beautiful area of the Weald in West Sussex.
Horsham has been voted as one of the best places in the UK to live on multiple occasions.
Between 1500 and 1800, Horsham became well known for its tanning and brewing industry, some breweries are still in operation today.
With a population of around 60,000 it possesses both a relatively laid-back pace and offers locals many social activities and clubs.
The town is sought after partly because of its efficient commuter connections, which offer residents the opportunity to travel to a number of larger towns and cities in the region with relative ease and speed.
Another attraction is its romantic rural landscape. For those who work in the city being able to get outside and enjoy the clean fresh air of the Sussex countryside is a real bonus.
At the towns heart is a busy centre. Swan Walk is Horsham’s main, undercover shopping area where you will find a good selection of stores perfect for serving the lifestyle needs of its residents.
In keeping with its past, there are two weekly markets which sell a range of produce, arts, crafts, clothing, plants, and flowers.
Although Horsham has grown significantly over the years, more expansion is planned.
Latest Council plans include a major capital investment programme costing £19.8 million, to deliver improved infrastructure and facilities for Horsham District.
These plans are still ongoing and due to be totally completed by 2023.

With Covid 19 having led to so many of us working from home and continuing to do so, more and more people have made the decision to relocate from London to Horsham. As a result, the demand for property in the area has risen substantially.
As is always the case with supply and demand, sadly, property prices have also risen, with the current average value now standing at £473,974, way above the national average.
This upward trend is set to continue as values show an increase of 5.44% over the past six months.
Springfield Lane, Nowhurst Lane, Rookwood Park and Springfield Lane are where you will find the most expensive homes and values on these streets often exceed £1,600,000.
For more reasonably priced homes, head to Moorhead Road and Bedford Road. In these locations you will find a choice of both first-time buyer properties at approximately £210,000 and family sized 3-bedroom homes starting at £320,000.
