Worthing railway stations are ready to welcome visitors.

 

Brand new brochure racks have been installed at Worthing and Shoreham-by-Sea railway stations as part of a bigger project to improve the visitor welcome in our region.

 

Visitors to both towns will be able to pick up local visitor information on their arrival helping them to really make the most of their time here.

 

The racks contain copies of the Worthing Pocket Guide and the Worthing Events Guide will be added in a few weeks.

 

 

This project has been possible thanks to a Southern Railway, Station Partnership Agreement with Adur & Worthing Councils. A station partnership is a commitment between Southern and a local group, individual or company to undertake projects at a station for the benefit of the local community, passengers and Southern stations. 

Bryan Turner, Worthing Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration said: “We recognise a significant number of our visitors arrive by train and want to do our best to make sure they have all the information they need to have a great time while they’re here.”

Jim Funnell, Adur District Cabinet Member for Regeneration added: “Perhaps Shoreham hasn’t been considered as a tourist destination in the past but it’s got some fantastic hidden gems that we want to share with visitors coming to Adur.”

Almost 2 million day visitors come to Worthing and around 876 thousand day visitors come to Adur each year – According to Economic Impact of Tourism Report 2010.

Around 16% of visitors to Worthing travelled by train according to the 2011 Worthing Visitor Survey.
