Worthing Things to Do

  • The Promenade

    A flat strip of tarmac seperating the beach and Marine Parade ,apparently people used to come to Worthing to walk up and down it ,which sounds a bit boring buts there's sod all else to do. There are cycle lanes which keep appearing and disapearing due to the whims of the council. But cycling is normally forbidden in case you run over one of the old...

  • The beach

    Worthing beach is normally completely deserted and comprised of small pebbles ( sitting on it's like a beaded seat cover) . Being Worthing ,unlike Brighton no effort is made to make the beach accessible with cafes or anything so its just there.Occasionally the fishermen sell fresh fish on the beach but they're getting rarer due to those giant...

  • The Pier

    Must have been exciting in Victorian times to " walk on water " but sadly not anymore. The Pier has two buildings on it, ones an arcade which hasn't had a new game since 1950 and is therefore a retro classic , at the end is a terrible nightclub formerly " Rutherfords ( Rubberheads!) " now trading as Lush. ( See the nightlife section )

Worthing Restaurants

  • A Hidden Gem !!

    Marine Gardens Restaurant is tucked away in West Worthing along the seafront in a quiet little garden setting. There is a bowls rink and a putting green. It is so relaxing to sit in or stroll around the gardens in the sunshine. The food is fairly tradional for a sea side place - fish and chips, salads, etc but they do have a great homemade Steak...

  • Sunday Morning Fry Up

    Not technically in Worthing ,but nearby Ferring's too small to show on here.Very old fashioned 50's cafe on Ferring beach does a decent fry up before 12 on Sunday mornings and is very popular during the summer. You can take your breakfast and eat on the terrace or on the beach itself. Fry up - comes with Roast potatoesTea - comes with milk and...

  • Don't miss the green chips

    The only place mad enough to stay open in vandalism hour ( 12-1) , north of the railway line serves average chinese food and truly awful late night snacks. The chips are green and one bag had a bit of gravel in it. Pancake Rolls - The greasiest thing you will ever eat ,perfect for skiving off work because of the resultant violent stomach...

Worthing Nightlife

  • The Toad

    The current pre club bar of choice in the town centre. Gigantic barn playing cheesy music to the young and the desperate of Worthing.The dancefloor at the back is a microcosm of teenage romance. Girls dancing round their handbags while the lads circle like sharks. It doesn't matter if you're so drunk you can't stand up.

    more
  • Illusions/Desires/Grand Central

    A series of baffling name changes fail to disguise what is normally regarded as Worthings worst big nightclub.It's terrible on Mondays when they play nothing but 80's music and have cheap beer ,and it's terrible Thursday to Saturday when you pay progressivley higher prices for the same beer. White trainered townies trying to pull the few girls who...

    more
  • Lush

    Nightclub formerly known as Rutherfords ( Rubberheads) ,actually going here used to be socially embarassing to the extent that people would make vague references to " going over the road " instead of mentioning the name.Overpriced and being on the end of the pier subject to hair-do wrecking combinations of sea and spray it 's only really any good...

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    These shopping centres don't have any shops! Apart from bloody scoop'n'saves. Perfect for people who like shopping centres but don't like shops or tramps who live there and occasionally chase people about.

    What to buy: Diamond White Cider
    Tennents Super
    Special Brew
    Crack

    What to pay: How much can you afford to loose?

    Celebrate Xmas Eve in time honoured Worthing tradition.

    Start at eleven a.m on the outskirts of town and pub-crawl your way into the town centre.
    Falling over is encouraged, as is lechery and top the evening off by going clubbing.
    You can also participate in the unique phenomenon of fighting in the street on Christmas Day itself ( even WW1 had a truce )
    Its also not Christmas if you don't pass out during your dinner the next day.

Worthing Warnings and Dangers

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Any competitive England football match is a potential explosion. Foreign visitors maybe mistaken for supporters of the opposition (some residents have never been north of the M25) and set upon. Foreign cars have also been targeted for vandalism in the past. All of which is preferable to actually have to talk to a drunk man wearing a silly hat and who has his face painted with a St George cross.

Worthing Off The Beaten Path

  • Highdown Hill

    Hill just north of Goring/Durrington , has the remains of another Iron Age hill fort like Chanctonbury and Cissbury. There have been several archaeological finds up there and a number of local legends make it yet another haunted Sussex hill. Also famous for the Millers Tomb ,containing the local miller John Oliver who died in 1793 ,and who insisted...

  • Salvington Mill

    Its an old wooden wind mill ,restored sveral times ,they never get any tourists at all so they'll probably give you the grand tour. Its on the corner of Mill Lane and Furze Road in High Salvinton ( north of the a27)

  • Cissbury Ring

    Iron age hillfort on the top of Cissbury Hill , the actual hill was occupied much longer with the remains of Neolithic flint mines ,but now the preserve of dog-walkers and the occasional flasher. Good place to go to watch the sun come up on New Years Day though the woods on the Findon Valley side of the hill are a favourite spot for suicides.
