Living in Worthing

Living in Worthing gives you the best of all worlds: a laid-back seaside lifestyle, the hustle and bustle of a thriving town, and easy access to the serenity of the South Downs. It’s a gem of a town in a beautiful area of the Sussex coast.

Home to one of the country’s oldest working cinemas and an award-winning Art Deco pier, Worthing is chock-full of history and character.
