What's On In Worthing?
Situated on the picturesque south coast, Worthing truly is the quintessential British seaside town. Its beach offers plenty of opportunities for water activities such as sailing and fishing, as well as sunbathing or simply skimming stones into the sea. With its Georgian promenade and excellent facilities, it's not difficult to see why Worthing has been a favoured destination among tourists for hundreds of years.
Away from the seafront the town provides something for everyone, with a huge range of restaurants serving everything from locally caught fish to international cuisine. There's also a great selection of pubs and bars, with the sea air providing the perfect tonic for a quiet get together or a spectacular night out. The economy is dominated by the service sector, including financial and government departments, but there is also a notable pharmaceutical employment sector in the town as well.
The town is easily accessible both by road and by rail, so it takes no time to hop along the coast to Littlehampton or Shoring-by-Sea to discover what else the south coast has to offer.
Cultural events and celebrations take place all year round here, from the Worthing Festival to the slightly more surreal International Birdman competition, in which participants attempt to fly as far as possible off the pier. Actually, there's very little flying involved, more of a leap of faith with a rather wet ending!
If watersports aren't your thing and you prefer to keep your feet on dry land, the nearby South Downs are popular with hikers and cyclists. The town is also home to a number of sports teams with football and bowls being particularly popular.
