Designed by Marks Barfield Architects and opened to the public on 15 September, 2007, The Lightbox has some of the most exciting gallery spaces in the South East. 

Three stunning galleries host a huge range of exhibitions, changing regularly. These include contemporary art from local and nationally famous artists, and loans from major museums and galleries in the UK and overseas.

The building is also home to Woking's Story, an interactive museum of the town's history. Here you can listen to people’s memories of life in Woking and watch historic films. If you’re visiting with children (or with your parents!) you’ll find plenty to keep them occupied. There are lots of hands-on activities and interactive displays.

You can also enjoy a coffee and slice of delicious cake or lunch in our canalside Café. Afterwards you can browse for a special gift or memento of your visit in our gift shop.

Visitors with disabilities will find the building is easy to use. It has been designed to be one of the most accessible cultural venues in the South East. More information is available on the Access page of the Visit Us section.
