Why Worthing?

The classic British seaside resort of Worthing has one of the sunniest climates in the UK. Worthing is the largest town in West Sussex, nestled between the South Downs National Park and the sea.

Worthing is an attractive town with five miles of promenade, lined with palm trees. As well as the South Downs, Worthing enjoys a number of beautiful green spaces such as the award-winning Highdown Gardens and Beach House Park. Brooklands Park offers a boating lake, miniature railway, golf and go-karting.

The centrepiece of the town is the seafront, with the customary fish-and-chip shops and ice-cream parlours as well as the lido and the art-deco pier. The pier houses one of Worthing’s two theatres. There are also three cinemas to keep residents entertained as well as a Museum and Art Gallery.

Around 100,000 people live and work here and demand for rental property in Worthing is very good, with a one bed flat in good condition renting for £500-£650 per month and a three bed house renting for around £1,000 per month. A steady stream of professional tenants enters the area, often employed by one of Worthing’s large employers such as Southern Water, Worthing Hospital or the Environment Agency.

Worthing is very close to Brighton and easily commutable to London so it’s attractive to tenants looking to save money on the high rents payable in both of these areas.
