Horsham is a West Sussex market town located near the edge of the Weald. It lies on the upper reaches of the River Arun, some 30 miles south-south-west of London.
Nearby, other places of interest include Brighton, Crawley, Haywards Heath and Burgess Hill. Just don’t venture too far! After all, there is nothing quite like enjoying an Afternoon Tea in Horsham!
To some, this town is home to the birthplace of British culture. It was here that Archaeologists discovered the “Horsham Point”, a Mesolithic arrowhead.
This is the earliest known artefact that postdates the separation of Britain from the continent. The settlement itself, meanwhile, dates back to at least 947 AD.
It’s generally believed that the name “Horsham” is in reference to the town’s connection to the sale of horses. Today, visitors mostly prefer to buy a cuppa with scones and cake at several Afternoon Tea Horsham establishments. If this is to your taste, you won’t be disappointed!
