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 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 our Plan Your Visit page.
The Lightbox is a charity and a limited company. The Staff team is overseen by a board of Trustees and we have a large number of invaluable Volunteers.

Community engagement is also central to all that we do, whether our exhibitions, our projects or our learning activities. We aim to be responsive to all sectors of our community, working in a genuinely collaborative way. To find out more about our work with the community click here.
We are currently collaborating on a project with the University of Surrey and Pervasive Intelligence. The project explores Augmented Reality and an app is being developed to improve the visitor experience, find out more about the project here.
