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.

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.

The Lightbox is a charity and a limited company. The Staff team is overseen by a board of Trustees and we have a large team of invaluable Volunteers. We are also supported by our generous Corporate Sponsors.
