Welcome to Worthing…

Worthing is a traditional seaside town with a twist. This is a place full of surprises – a wide open prom allows space to breathe, to run, to cycle, an endless horizon frames the beach and, of course, don’t miss our famous pierThe Worthing of today is a happy collision of classic and contemporary; where else can you hop off your paddle board and into one of the oldest working cinemas in the UK, tuck into a traditional cream tea or pop into a micro pub, swing by an art studio beach hut or spot wild ponies at an Iron Age fort.

The town also makes a perfect base from which to explore wider Sussex, just 90 minutes from London Victoria by train or 20 minutes from Brighton. So come and explore the town for yourself!
