The largest town in West Sussex centrally located on the coast, 10 miles west of Brighton, 18 miles east of Chichester. There is an excellent road network, the A24 termination at the Pier and running North to London, the A27 situated 5 miles inland and running parallel to the Coastline east to west.


The town boasts the main shopping centre in West Sussex, there are branches of all the major high street chains, as well as many individual independently owned shops. All shopping is concentrated close to the Pier and pedestrianised precincts are flat.

In addition to the relatively unspoilt attributes of Worthing as a seaside town, are its gardens, national championship Bowling Greens (Worthing is the home of the English Bowling Association), Promenade with Pier and historic architecture. There are numerous places of interest within 1 hours drive of The Ardington. In fact, it is often said, that one of Worthing's main strengths is it's ideal central location for touring Sussex and neighbouring Counties.
