== Hitching out ==
=== North towards [[Dorking]] ===
Heading North should be no problem on the roundabout junction of the A264 and the A24. On the Northbound carriageway just after the roundabout is a large concrete hatched area in front of an electricity substation (?) that cannot be used for parking but is ideal for lifts to pull in to. Traffic is also slowed because of the roundabout. (Lat 51.087513, Lon 0.333753)
=== South towards [[Cowfold]]/[[Worthing]]/[[Brighton]] ===
=== West towards [[Guildford]]/[[Petworth]] ===
If headed towards [[Billingshurst]] and [[Petworth]] walk further to the left and there is a Garden Center on the A264 with a good space to pull over.
=== East towards {{mgb|23}}/[[Crawley]]/[[Brighton]] ===
The {{mgb|23}} is a trunk motorway/road that runs from London to Brighton. It is approximately 6 miles to the East of Horsham and the service station at [[Pease Pottage]] can be used to travel both North and South.
2 spots are ideal for hitching out of [[Horsham]] in this direction. The roundabout on the corner of the A264 as it meets Horsham is a good spot. There is a slight lay-by on the North bound carriage way just after the roundabout and traffic is slower. (Lat 51.084062, Lon 0.289249)
Alternatively ''Forest Road '' is a smaller 'B' road that runs directly to [[Pease Pottage]] and so most traffic heading this way will pass through here. (Lat 51.075138, Lon 0.289378)

== Accommodation and Sleep ==
=== Hotels/Hostels===
There are no recognised Hostels within Horsham. The Travel Lodge hotel situated in the centre of town next to the Shelley Fountain (Water feature that often does not work and resembles a giant Chicken Nugget (ironically next to the towns only McDonalds)) offers cheap rooms (Circa £30 pn). Premiere Inn, located opposite Horsham Railways Station, may also have cheap accomodation
=== Wild Camping ===
Wild camping is possible all around Horsham. There are a number of small copse copses' of woodland within Horsham and is partially surrounded by St Leonards Forest on the Eastern side. The easiest way to access these woods would be through the ''''Leechpool Woods'''' car park off of ''Harwood Road B2195''. A short walk up ''Hammerpond Road '' will give a good few places to enter the woods as well.
