Reasons for trip

We travelled by train to Worthing on the south coast and stayed in an Airbnb accommodation. It was a large Victorian house, which was more than big enough for our family of six. The house was immaculate with everything we could possibly need. Being a five-minute walk from the station it was ideal for getting around this part of Sussex. There were plenty of bars and restaurants within easy walking distance.

Worthing seafront with its pebbly beach vista was a pleasant place to stroll on a summers evening. There is an attractive pier with windshields made of glass panels produced by local artists. The original pier was built in 1861 with many repairs and improvements made since. The Southern Pavilion was built in the art deco style in 1837 and is now a cafe. In the middle of the pier is the amusement arcade. At the northern end is the Pavilion Theatre.

The day we walked along the pier a singer and band were practicing for their evening performance – so we got a free show while we ate our ice cream! The group was The Family Stone – you may remember the 1960’s American rock group “Sly and the Family Stone”. We talked to the singer Phunne (pronounced “fun”) the daughter of Sly Stone and trumpet player Cynthia Robinson. Unfortunately, we could not go to the evening performance because unsurprisingly it was fully booked up!

So, Worthing proved to be a great base for exploring the area. Some days we spent all together as a family and on others we did our own thing. This was the first time we had rented Airbnb and I can certainly recommend this one.
