Worthing is a large seaside town in West Sussex, England. It is situated at the foot of the South Downs National Park, 10 miles (16 km) west of Brighton. For many centuries Worthing was a small mackerel fishing hamlet until in the late 18th century it developed into an elegant seaside resort and attracted the well-known and wealthy of the day. Modern Worthing now has a large service industry, particularly in financial services.[1]
