Worthing was once a tiny fishing hamlet, catching mackerel. It quickly expanded in Georgian times in to an elegant seaside resort. Sitting at the foot of the South Downs, it is only around 10 miles west of Brighton, and further to the west you’ll find the beautiful Chichester.
Together with Brighton and Littlehampton, it makes up a conurbation. Nonetheless, there’s still a close relationship with nature here, with the South Downs National Park being on the doorstep. Historically this area is known for Stone Age flint mines and the Iron Age hill fort of Cissbury Ring, before becoming focused on tourism and market gardening.
