Until the middle of the 18th century this traditional seaside resort on the West Sussex coast was a modest fishing village.

Then the Victorians discovered the delights of sea air and the joy of bathing.

Its growing reputation received a royal boost when King George III sent his youngest daughter Princess Amelia to test the town’s health-giving properties in 1798.

Today Worthing is less glamorous but just as bracing with its four-miles of flower-bedecked promenade, theatres and Regency properties.
