The pretty West Sussex seaside town of Worthing earned the nickname 'Sunny Worthing' in the 19th Century thanks to its long sunny days. Visitors flock here during the summer months for the town's sandy beach, and you'll find hotels to suit all budgets, from independent seafront hotels to family-run guesthouses and affordable motels.
If you're looking for a budget-friendly family hotel in Worthing, choose one of the independent hotels overlooking the seafront. Family owned, they offer a warm welcome, with many serving a complimentary 'Sussex Breakfast' prepared using ingredients sourced from local producers and farm shops.
Worthing has plenty of attractions to keep kids of all ages amused. For a fun family day out, start off with a free breakfast at your hotel, then head for Harbour Park Adventure Park or Brooklands Pleasure Park. The Lido Entertainment Centre is packed with amusements and children's rides, as well as a café and restaurant with stunning sea views, or take a leisurely stroll along the Pier as you enjoy an ice cream or some fish and chips - the fish is usually caught fresh that day by local fishermen.
Every summer, Worthing hosts the International Birdman Competition, attracting tens of thousands of visitors. Competitors launch themselves off the pier using their hand-crafted flying machines; it's quite a spectacular sight and a great day out for the whole family. Golf fans can head for Worthing Golf Club, with its two 18-hole courses, located on the beautiful South Downs. After a long day out, you'll find most cafés and restaurants in town are located within easy walking distance of your hotel, and you simply have to try the freshly-caught fish and seafood that's on offer.
Most hotels in Worthing are close to the town's attractions, and the compact town centre makes getting around easy. With many hotels offering free parking, there's no need to waste time hunting for a parking space.
