The Lightbox

The Lightbox gallery and museum in Woking is one of the most exciting cultural spaces in the South East. Three stunning galleries host a huge range of exhibitions, changing regularly. We have received many awards in recognition of our work, including winning the Art Fund Prize in 2008. For the full list of our achievements please click here.

The building is also home to Woking's Story, an interactive museum of the town's history. If you are visiting with children you will find plenty to keep them occupied with our hands-on activities and interactive displays. You can also enjoy lunch in our canalside Café. Afterwards you can browse for a special gift or memento of your visit in our Gift Shop.
