  • I've lived here since 1983 and still don't feel like I really belong but I guess that's because I never went to school here so don't have any real roots. It's very different to living in Brighton & Hove (where I used to go to school). Worthing has improved over the years - it's great to go walking on the beach or on the Downs - there are golf clubs, tennis clubs, and lots of opportunties to join social groups - whatever your age. Pity we don't have a decent cinema - and the shopping leaves lots to be desired. There are some lovely new developments on the seafront - I'd love to get hold of one of those!

  • I would suggest that you look at the local authorities’ website or police.gov to see what the crime statistics etc for this area are. You can also look at the local tourist board website which gives you an up to date overview of the area. I would also visit the area and ask some locals.

  • I have lived here for five years. I like Worthing. Plusses are - the weather, sunny micro-climate, the shingle beach (no sand blowing in your face -- the shopping, from top M&S, Waitrose to the wonderful LIDL, and every kind of shop you want - excellent bus services, fast trains to London/Gatwick with stations usually within walking distance, loads of excellent cafes and restaurants - the hospital. It's hard to find a downside other than the population being on the elderly side, and night-time parking is difficult. The near countryside offers many wonderful pubs and gastro-pubs. It seems to me to be virtually crime-free. A theatre and a couple of cinemas for basic entertainment, but there is always Brighton 45 minutes away by bus - 20 minutes by train. And finally - property is extraordinarily cheap, but being so plentiful is not an investment paradise. .

  • Hi, We would suggest that you get in touch with local estate agents in order to get some background about the area. You can search for agents using the ‘find agents’ tab on the top of the Zoopla Page. We hope this helps.
