Worthing railway station is one of the main stops on the West Coastway Line. Unusually, many of the trains travelling from London to Southampton Central and Littlehampton split at the station and passengers must ensure they are travelling in the correct carriage. The station dates back to 1840 and the first train ran from Brighton to Shoreham in just eleven minutes carrying 1,750 passengers. A charming single-storey building, the station had a bit of a facelift in 2008 when the original glass roof covering the platforms was replaced with corrugated canopies. In the mid 19th century, Worthing was rife with smugglers and coastguards getting into frequent scrapes. The arrival of the station in 1845 Ð boasting six trains a day from London Ð elevated the townÕs prospects, and investment followed as people came from all over to enjoy the breathtaking seascapes still so popular today. Since its Edwardian popularity as a seaside resort, the West Sussex town remains a trendy holiday destination, with a stunning seafront peppered with palm trees and the family amusement attraction of Worthing Lido a short bus ride from the station.
