Worthing is sometimes mistaken for Brighton’s less fun little brother, but the moniker couldn’t be more inaccurate. The seaside town boasts a proud history of its own, striking architecture and much-loved attractions.
Situated on the south coast, Worthing can easily rival Brighton in terms of things to do, pretty places to visit and more importantly, affordable, quality housing. It’s a veritable feather in the cap of local letting agents: Worthing is not as expensive as Brighton.
Here are a few other reasons why you might like to consider Worthing:
Be beside the seaside…
Worthing residents still get the same ‘seaside escape’ environment as they might in Brighton: the squawk of seagulls, the tempting waft of fish and chips, a promenade along the pier, but without quite such a number of tourists. Don’t misunderstand, it is a popular holiday destination, but it attracts more families than groups of young people looking to party.
Convenient transport links
For those considering a move to Worthing, they should be reassured to know that it is served by rail, road and (not too far away) plane. There are direct and indirect trains to London Victoria from West Worthing Station and from East Worthing too, with a quick change at Brighton. Gatwick airport is only a 40 minute drive away and Worthing is very close to the A27, so commuting should not be a problem.
The town centre offers great amenities, from favourite high street brands to unique independent retailers. Stop for something to eat at one of the many cafés or restaurants (or that obligatory fish and chips on the beach) or be entertained at the cinema or theatre. There is always something going on to keep the whole family happy.
In all, Worthing is a great town, with views of the South Downs and the breaking waves. It offers an unparalleled quality of living; fresh sea air and space to breathe that is hard to find in more bustling cities. Anyone looking for the ideal place to bring up and family and live in comfort really ought to consider a move to Worthing.
