Horsham in general Reviews
Newest Review: ... didn't want to give up. I suggest to anyone who is just starting out and happens to work in South-East England to consider looking for houses in Horsham. We have a huge terraced 2 bedroom house with small garden and massive rooms, down a very quiet road. (Loads of people want to live here, so houses can get sold in less than 3 days!) We got it for £67,000 - for the same kind of place in Surrey we would be looking at £140,000. Go figure. When we were looking in Guildford all we could afford was a 1 bedroom attic flat the size of a pub toilet. Horsham is situated in a great area - near places like Brighton and Guildford and then up to L... more

Okay, I have read all the opinions on Horsham, and I agree with them all! But has anyone thought of the poor souls who have the misfortune to live there? I am one of these poor souls, and have lived there for a year-and surprizingly enough am looking to sell my house already! The reason we live here is I work in Surrey and my husband works in Hampshire. We couldn't afford to live in either of these two counties because the house prices are so stupid, and we had good jobs we didn't want to give up. I suggest to anyone who is just starting out and happens to work in South-East England to consider looking for houses in Horsham. We have a huge ... Read the complete review

Horsham is only an hour in the train from London and is therefore home to a whole herd of commuters, whose families live in the expensive and rather boring, middle-class,landscaped estates, and attend the nice little schools and shop in the clean and safe, predictable shopping centre and Swan Walk, the mall. There are some charming old houses though, with traditional Horsham slab roofing, and the countryside round about, especially St Leonard's Forest, remnant of the old weald, with the huge hammer ponds, is beautiful. And the council seem to provide the best flower beds for miles around; really gorgeous. Facilities include a large and attractive ... Read the complete review

Diss is a small Norfolk market town that I wouldn't really recommend visiting. It's very boring, I grew up there so I should know. Although it is pituresque in certain places (a big lake-type thing in the middle, a village green where the annual fair is held and a few quaint old streets) nothing ever happens except a few fights on a Friday night between local boys bored out of their tiny skulls. There are about 7 pubs, the best is The Sun in the centre of the town, it's got a beer garden looking out onto the lake (which is called 'the Mere'). Don't be afraid of the American Werewolf in London-style reaction of local people in the pub, they ... Read the complete review

Horsham is a small tory market town. Very pretty, nice shops, but pretty dull. The town is home to the Collyer's - the college Harry Enfield went to, and the most amazing and unusual fountain you'll ever see. It's looks sligtly like a jacket potatoe moving up and down on a stick. Honestly. It has to be seen to be beleived. What's even more amazing is that is was actualy allowed to be built, Horshams tory council takes years to decide anything, such as decided whether to build a skateboard ramp or give a licence to a nightclub. And so, due to the lack of nightlife there are loads of fights - just so the townies have something to do. If you are ... Read the complete review

A lot like Crawley really, just less of it. Horsham rates well with the park (nice and big), Arts Centre (small cinema which shows the good stuff as well), and good transport links. On the bad side, town planners seem to think they can make up for the unbelievable dullness of the town by vast amounts of flowers. This may seem like a good thing, but they have gone to far. Every railing has a (window-)box, every space has plants squashed in with no regard for taste. The population is very much commuter-belt, and the youth are predominately Townie. Has one club which should be awarded by all but those who think that Ibiza would be a good holiday destination. ... Read the complete review
