Persimmon Homes


Worthing is a vibrant town on the coast, just a stone’s throw from bustling Brighton. With fantastic amenities, great connections and no shortage of things to do, it’s a very popular location for families, professionals and those looking to retire.

Buying a new home in Worthing

Worthing sits on the sought-after West Sussex coast. It’s located between Brighton and Chichester, at the foot of the glorious South Downs National Park. Close to cities and nature, you have the best of both worlds on your doorstep, as well as all the amenities you’ll need in the town itself. For this reason, it’s become a popular destination for those looking to buy a new home.

Living in Worthing

Sea and South Downs

Worthing seafront has a pier, 5 miles of palm-tree lined promenade, a lido and a sand and shingle beach - all ready and waiting for you to make the most of. It’s much quieter than the beach at neighbouring Brighton, and, as Worthing is consistently one of the sunniest places in the UK, you’ll have plenty of opportunities and space to enjoy it.

Behind the town is the stunning South Downs National Park, with endless footpaths and rural walks to explore. Near the town are the popular Cissbury Ring and Steyning Bowl scenic attractions offering breathtaking views across the landscape. With all of this within easy reach of your new Persimmon Home, you’ll have plenty of choice for outdoor activities to enjoy.

Near the action

A short drive of around 40 minutes or a direct train of just over 45 minutes provides access to one of the UK’s biggest airports and over 200 destinations around the world. So, while you’ll find everything you need in the town, visiting other destinations from your new home couldn’t be easier.

Worthing is just a short distance from Brighton. A direct train takes less than 20 minutes and you can drive there in just under half an hour. You can reach London Victoria by direct train in less than an hour and a half, and Chichester is only half an hour away by train. There are excellent road links to London via the A24 and along the south coast, and Gatwick Airport couldn’t be easier to reach.

All the amenities you’ll need

Worthing benefits from a bustling high street, a great range of supermarkets and Worthing Hospital, located right in the centre of the town. For entertainment, there’s a cinema, a theatre and live music venues, as well as a museum and art gallery. There’s also a thriving food scene, ranging from food trucks to Micheline Guide restaurants, so you’ll never be short of a great place to eat. Having all this available from your new home, you’ll have all the essentials and endless entertainment available to you.
