Worthing is known for its mild climate as it is protected to the north by the south downs. This is why for many generations it has been a popular retirement area - with nearly one in four of the population of Worthing aged over 65.
Camelot is located just on the edge of the town centre and is therefore very close to the highlights of the coastal town. Within half a mile of Camelot is a lovely promenade that stretches for nearly two miles. Wheelchair access is easy and its smooth surface makes a walk along the prom a real joy.
Worthing Pier also has easy access for wheelchairs. On a clear day you can see through to Brighton and the white cliffs that lead to Eastbourne to the east, and sometimes even the Isle of Wight to the west.
At the end of the pier at the recently refurbished Southern Pavilion you can partake of meals, beverages and drinks and enjoy probably the best view on the south coast.
There are a number of beautiful parks and gardens in Worthing including Beach Gardens, Steyne Gardens and Marine Gardens.
The Dome is one of the oldest cinemas in the country, and Worthing also has two theatres - The Connaught and The Pavilion at the start of the pier. Many international stars and some of the best plays and musicals have been showcased in Worthing.
Worthing boasts many coffee houses and cafeterias, most of which of which are independently owned and therefore individual in their offerings, meaning you do not have to rely on the global brands we have seen around the country.
There are restaurants in the town that cover most international cuisines and of course locally caught fish is something one must try.
The town centre shopping parade is also close to Camelot and boasts major retailers such as Marks & Spencers, Boots, Waitrose along with Debenhams and Beales department stores.
Travelling to Worthing by train is easy with direct services to and from London, Brighton, Portsmouth and Southampton. There are also buses that run along the coast, and into the countryside.
