Worthing's success was built on pleasure and it really only started to grow at any notable rate in the from the 1750s onwards when London society started to show an interest in the therapeutic effects of sea bathing and imaginative developers started to invest in what was then little more than a large village.
It's fair to say that the developers' vision was realised, but it seemed that what they needed to make Worthing a success was a bit of celebrity endorsement. In time they got their celebrity - royalty, no less.
Society's interest in this part of the Sussex coast was catalysed by the decision to send Princess Amelia to Worthing for a spot of sea bathing to help her get over tuberculosis in 1798. Brighton was considered too racy for the teenage princess (daughter of King George III), but Worthing was settled on as a suitably refined place to recuperate.
But it's no wonder that Sunny Worthing has proved such a popular place to live, sandwiched, as it is, in a three mile deep plain between the South Downs and the English Channel. Worthing still does well out of tourism and many of the town's attractions, like its theatres seem a throwback to the heyday of the seaside holiday.
Worthing has a large central shopping area with a good range of independent retailers on its fringes.
If Brighton is lively and slightly dangerous, Worthing is more genteel. Worthing's reputation as a town with an elderly population had been justified until recently, but 100 years ago the borough elders were marketing Worthing as a great place for young families with children to visit or live in.
