Worthing’s reputation as a coastal town on the up has been reinforced with the publication of a new visitor guide.
From walks on the South Downs to kitesurfing, family cycle rides to fantastic independent shopping, the south coast town is stepping out of the shadows and back onto the mainstage
as a destination to rival its south coast neighbours.
The launch of the Discover Worthing Visitor Guide for 2018/19 by Worthing Borough Council coincides with English Tourism Week (17- 25 March). Reflecting the wealth of hidden treasures and renewed vibrancy of the town, the booklet compliments new bright, bold branding and a visually inspiring Discover Worthing website launched last year.
With outdoor life at the heart of it, the guide also celebrates the town’s vintage shopping, quirky independent arts and local Sussex produce – all of which promotes Worthing as the
ideal destination for a ‘getting away from it all break’ just a stone’s throw from London.
Councillor Kevin Jenkins, Worthing Borough Council’s Executive Member for Regeneration, said: “Our Visitor Guide for 2018/19 is colourful and eye catching, it brings together in one read the wealth of opportunities that a visit to Worthing offers families, walkers, the water enthusiast or those who wish to just enjoy the beauty and peace of our seafront “There is so much on offer in Worthing and nearby in the Sussex countryside, there cannot be a better time to come and Discover Worthing.”
The A5 visitor guide printed in soft tones, in an uncoated matt finish promotes a friendly, gentle paced, quality destination – an opportunity to escape the digital world, reconnect and get back to nature.
Discover Worthing has teamed up with Take One Media to distribute the guide across the South East of England. The Guide will be available at key attractions and accommodation providers across the South East, at the Central London Information point, key service stations on the M25, M23 as well as on ferries from Dover / Calais over the high season. Nigel Smith, Chief Executive, Tourism South East, said: “The new Discover Worthing Visitor Guide is a comprehensive and stylish presentation of one of the south coast’s most popular coastal towns. “However, as well as expounding on all the things you would expect from Worthing – iconic Georgian architecture, the seaside Pier and lots of family activities – it also explores the contemporary, modern and energetic Worthing that attracts visitors of all ages throughout the year.
“It also sets Worthing in the context of one of England’s most beautiful counties – Sussex – so there are lots more things to see and do nearby, from walking on the South Downs National Park to visiting Brighton, one of the UK’s most vibrant cities.”
