The seaside town everyone misses because of famous neighbour | Travel News | Travel

Renowned for its large and vibrant culture, iconic pier, colourful beach huts, lively promenade and large shopping areas it is easy to see why Brighton is one of the country’s most popular seaside destinations.

But nestled just 17 miles away from its famous neighbour sits a pretty little seaside town with long stretches of beautiful beaches lined with quaint wooden beach huts.

Goring-by-Sea is often overlooked by tourists in favour of its more famous neighbour however, the West Sussex town has everything you want from a seaside getaway without the packed beaches and fully booked bars and restaurants.

The blue flag waters and clean beaches offer traditional family holidays with Goring being home to the Worthing Sailing Club which has an excellent provision for Seafarers of all abilities including a fantastic Juniors section.

The annual summer festivals are popular here, they include the Chichester Show and the local Bowls Festival.

Unlike other south coast resorts, Goring has resisted installing amusement arcades and candy-floss stalls. Instead, cute fishing boats pull up on a quiet shoreline while people take part in a range of water sports including kitesurfing.

Lying between the sea and the South Down’s National Park, Goring-by-Sea is an attractive and wealthy area with the town even having some grand manor houses which include Courtlands, Goring Hall and Field Place.

The coast is lined with a couple of seaside cafes providing a perfect spot to sit back and take the unspoilt seaside spot. While the town centre has a selection of shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs.

Highdown Gardens are a mile away from Goring and the market town of Arundel with its famous castle is just a ten-minute drive.

Goring-by-Sea has a local railway station ideal for commuters looking for a short commute into Brighton (35 mins) or the City (London Bridge approximately 1:30 minutes). Bognor Regis, known for its nostalgic promenades and arcades is also only half an hour away.

The larger resort of Worthing is also only five minutes along the coast with its art deco pier – voted the best in Britain in 2019 – and an observation wheel.
