Overview

Living in Horsham

Horsham lies at the very heart of West Sussex; an historic market town boasting medieval architecture and a rich heritage that blends effortlessly with today’s cosmopolitan, pedestrianised, town centre. The stunning town, well known for its award winning floral displays, features continental-style al fresco cafes, high quality restaurants and a blend of national and independent specialist shops.


 

Horsham has been a bustling market town for centuries and today has a thriving market scene including antiques, local produce and arts and crafts. These take place every Saturday, with another open-air market on Thursdays. Specialist markets also visit Horsham annually including a popular French and Italian market.  The town hosts a very full calendar of events throughout the year including The Easter Piazza Italia featuring, amongst other attractions, a spectacular display of Italian cars and a District-wide Food and Drink Festival in September.

History

The name Horsham originates from Ham, the Saxon word for village and either “Horse Ham”, a place where horses are kept, or “Horsa’s Ham”, named after a Saxon warrior believed to have been granted land in the area.  By the 13th century Horsham had grown into a small market town known for horse trading, however despite a strong local iron industry, which stayed until the 17th century, the town remained relatively small, primarily serving local farms in the area.

By the 20th century other industries became more prominent; the most important being the manufacture of bricks and the tradition of brewing.  Horsham remained a prominent brewery town until 2000, when the King and Barnes Brewery closed after merging with Hall & Woodhouse brewers of Dorset. The tradition however is still being kept alive by Hepworth Brewery and WJ King & Co.
