A tall square tower with rounded edges. It has four small rounded turrets at the top and a clockface near the top of the tower. There is a door (just seen) in the base. Buildings stretch out from the Clocktower towards the camera on the left, with small trees and shrubs in front. There is a flower bed on the right hand side and a path leading between them to the tower. The day is sunny and the sky is blue.

The Difference you Make to the Horniman

The Horniman enjoyed a record-breaking year in 2018/19 thanks to you.

We opened two new galleries – the World Gallery and The Studio – complemented by a new Grasslands Garden and attracted the most visitors in our history.

Every ticket, shop and café purchase, every membership and each donation supports our charitable work and we are grateful to all our supporters. We wanted to highlight this impact and thank you for caring about the future of the Horniman.
