Living in Shoreham-by-Sea

Shoreham-by-Sea (or just Shoreham to locals) is an attractive seaside town located roughly halfway between Brighton and Worthing.

First developed as a port by the Norman Conquerors, then a shipbuilding and trade hub in the Victorian era, Shoreham is rich with history. The river Adur winds through the town and there’s a selection of contemporary properties overlooking the water.

With a shingle beach stretching for about 3 miles and the South Downs National Park on its doorstep, Shoreham offers plenty of opportunities for an active, outdoorsy lifestyle.
