From small beginnings, this beautiful seaside town, which nestles between the South Downs and the English Channel, and sprawls lazily alongside the foamy rollers which jump and chase each other for position, commands a population now of over 100.000 people. Once a fishing hamlet called Broadwater, the land on which worthing now resides is mostly claimed back from the sea. King Canute who tried his best a few miles down the road, would have been proud. With it's Edwardian history and buildings, many of which are still in their former glory, to the ancient pathways and churches, scattered everywhere. From thos' A Becket and his palace at tarring, to the ancient stoneage settlement of Cissbury. To the wonderful gardens and terraces alive with colour and the contrast of the modern shopping centre and amenities. There is so much here to see and do, both ancient and modern, for the young and the old. Nightclubs abound, as do hotels, restuarants and cafes. Young or old, the town of worthing is well worth a visit.
