About the location

3 minutes walk from the sea, beach and promenade so ideally situated for a beach holiday. One minute walk from a park with pond, putting, bowling and cafe. Five minutes walk from a new children`s park on the beach. About one mile along promenade to town centre with Worthing pier (free), cinemas, theatres, bars, swimming pool, leisure centre, shops, bowling, tourist information, library etc. Many interesting tourist attractions in the area. Ten minutes walk to local shops.
Approximately 50 miles south of London. Fifteen minutes walk to local rail station. Direct trains to London take 90 minutes. We are fourteen miles west of Brighton, which has a pier - about 30 minutes by train. Ten minutes drive to South Down hills for walking. Nearby is Chichester, Arundel (including castle), Goodwood.
Beach has sand, pebbles and rock pools - so great for swimming, digging, sandcastles, rock pooling, windsurfing, kitesurfing, sunbathing, picnicking etc. Promenade is good for cycling, skating, walking, skate boarding, scooting and walking.
International travel by plane: the easiest route is to fly into London Gatwick airport. There is a train station exactly under the airport so you just walk there in about 2 minutes. The train journey is about one hour to our local railway station & then you have a walk of only about 15 minutes or a 5 minute taxi drive to our house - so very easy transport to our home if flying to London Gatwick.
Continental ferry ports: one hour to Newhaven, one hour to Portsmouth, one and a half hours to Southampton, 3 hours to Dover.
