Trails of the unexpected

Get out and explore Horsham Museum & Art Gallery's colourful and fascinating new heritage trails, which will reveal to you lots of local inner secrets.

Twenty remarkable trails have been created, each providing an interesting and engaging walk around our District. They highlight such gems as a submarine memorial, a lost garden, post-industrial landscapes and medieval salt making, amongst many more unique local curiosities. We live in a district steeped in history and these trails will help you explore it. Available from local libraries and venues, or you can download them as PDFs.

The trails were developed thanks to the National Heritage Lottery fund, Horsham District Community Partnerships Forum, volunteers from the District’s various local history groups and Horsham Museum & Art Gallery.
