The occasional visitor to Worthing and even some of the residents who don’t stray into town very often would be forgiven for thinking that they ‘get’ Worthing.
It’s a sleepy seaside town with a geriatric population – even the shop windows are bi-focal, right?
Well actually there have been some changes.
Worthing has come out fighting since the 2008 crash when many of the well known businesses couldn’t make it.
In fact, local shops are currently expecting their busiest pre-Christmas season since 2007, and it shows.
New Investment In Worthing
The investment begins out at sea, with the superb pier now a stunning wedding venue, bar and restaurant refurbished to former Art Deco glory.
Head to the seafront to find a regenerated Splash Point with water feature, sculptures and seating and a sand volleyball court.
All this just yards from the iconic swimming and fitness centre, also named Splash Point.
Montague Street is at least part way through a facelift although recently work seems to have ground to a halt and there are big plans to improve the slightly under whelming Montague Place which is a prime al fresco venue when the weather is right.
The Future Of Worthing?
Well as we know, success breeds success. If we want more great places to shop, eat and drink we need to use them and more will follow.
If you’re planning an evening out head to town, parking is cheap and easy and your custom now will help over a quieter Winter. Support Worthing town centre and watch it blossom again.
