Wellbeing is at the heart of this cultural hub in Woking, from improving the quality of life for its community to offering an inclusive space for everyone to experience art.

Regular exhibitions showcase the work of internationally renowned artists, investigate local heritage, and draw from The Lightbox’s rich collections, all across three vibrant gallery spaces.

The gallery is home to the Joan Hurst Collection, donated through Art Fund and the prestigious Ingram Collection of Modern British Art, which includes a number of works by renowned sculptors such as Anthony Caro, Eduardo Paolozzi, Elisabeth Frink and Barbara Hepworth. Plus, there is a delightful shop and cafe that focuses on locally sourced products.

The Lightbox’s distinctive building was designed by Marks Barfield architects who also built the London Eye and the treetop walkway at Kew Gardens.
