With the uncertainty surrounding Brexit, a UK ‘stay-cation’ is becoming a more popular option and these coach trips down south offer a great way to see the UK in comfort and luxury.
Worthing is a traditional seaside town with a twist. This is a place full of surprises – a wide open prom allows space to breathe, run, cycle; an endless horizon frames the beach; and, of course, the famous pier.
The Worthing of today is a happy collision of classic and contemporary.
The town also makes a perfect base from which to explore wider Sussex.
