Shoreham-by-Sea station was one of the earliest stations to open in the south of England, coming into operation in 1840. It serves both the West Sussex seaside town and Shoreham Airport (also known as Brighton City Airport), which lies about a mile to the east The station's most frequent service is eastbound to Brighton, with four trains per hour. An additional half hourly service runs to London Victoria, taking approximately half an hour. Regular trains also run westbound to Littlehampton, Southampton Central and Portsmouth Harbour. Shoreham-by-Sea is dominated by the River Adur estuary, offering visitors frequent views of slow-flowing water and bobbing boats. Most shops, bars and restaurants can be found ten minutes south of the station, between the river and the seafront, but you'll find some more along Brighton Road, which runs parallel to the train tracks. For some local culture, head to the Ropetackle Arts Centre, on the near side of the Brighton Road bridge.
