Worthing is a town located next to the English Channel with the South Downs in the background, in West Sussex. The town encompasses areas such as Worthing Central, East Worthing, Tarring and West Worthing, Durrington, Broadwater, Offington, Goring-by-Sea, High and Lower Salvington, and Findon Valley. It is some 10 miles west from Brighton. History in the settlement is prehistoric with some of the earliest Stone Age flint mines discovered in Europe. Although a fishing hamlet for many years, the arrival of the railway and popularity in seaside tourism saw the town develop in the 19th century. Today, there is a robust financial services industry in Worthing and a great retail sector based in the town centre. Tourism also thrives and sites such as Worthing Pier attract day trippers and the town’s cinema is one of the oldest in Britain. Famous residents have included Oscar Wilde, who wrote ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’ there, and also playwright Harold Pinter.
Locals hold a particular affection for their residential streets in Worthing, whether it’s Chesswood Road, Ham Road, Lyndhurst Road and Chesswood Road in East Worthing; or Shelley Road, Boundary Road and Rowlands Road by the seafront; or Teville Road and Tarring Road further up. Brighton Road has some lovely seaside houses, not to be confused with Upper Brighton Road, which contains large homes. Salvington Road and Terringes Avenue in the direction of Durrington also have some lovely houses. The streets across the sub areas of Worthing cover a great range of historical periods and are presented in an intriguing and attractive manner.
The shopping centre is also a highlight of Worthing. South Street leads the way down to the seafront with bigger stores either side, as well as banks and the odd cafe or two. A turn to the left, if you’re facing seaward, takes you to Warwick Street which has an individual feel to it with some arts representation and cafes. Further to the right is Montague Street, which contains national stores. Follow that pedestrianised route down and you come to Rowlands Road, which also have individual retail outlets with arguably a more alternative feel to them. The A259 Brighton Road has some fantastic restaurants and a former nightclub-turned-cafe at the end of Worthing Pier.
Worthing’s swimming pool is now Splashpoint Leisure Centre, which replaced the former Aquarena and was, in fact, built next to the previous building. The pool also has a gym and is located close to the sea, with an outside swimming pool as well. Nearby are some cafes and artists sell their wares from inbuilt beach huts, which creates a liberal atmosphere for people enjoying a saunter along the promenade. There’s also a park and water splash facility for kids to enjoy and a brilliant fish and chop shop nearby. Small fishing boats sometimes selling their catch of the day, are also pulled up on the pebbles heading east. This seafront area near Splashpoint, on a hot summer’s day, is perfect for holidays and remains popular for residents and visitors alike.
When the sun is shining in Worthing, many families head to Goring Gap on the western side of the town. Although Goring has retained something of its own identity, the settlement is considered part of Worthing and the beach front there is excellent – quieter beaches with good exposure to the sun. The ‘green’ at Goring Gap has barbecuue facilities and larger groups will be seen there throughout the sunny months, sizzling up sausages, playing team games and sunbathing. There’s a cafe nearby for food and ice creams, and the beach itself is witness to a wide range of leisure lovers, from kite surfers to metal detector enthusiasts. The promenade from Goring to Worthing town centre is also very pleasant, sauntering beside the pebbled beach.
Worthing is increasingly showcasing a wonderful variety in restaurants and cafes, in a similar vein to Brighton. A sushi outlet has recently opened up and there are a number of curry houses, chinese and thai restaurants, gastronomic pubs, mexican, italian and pizza outlets, and numerous takeaways. Both high street and independent cafes can also be found and residents who have lived in the town for years, note with interest how culture has changed from the tearooms of yesteryear (popular with daytrippers) to the emergence of coffee houses. Worthing is increasingly modern in its outlook but also respectful to the older generation in its provision of facilities.
