A Film Friendly Historic Seaside Town 


Worthing was officially established in the late 18th century, after Princess Amelia, daughter of George III holidayed here. Originally a fishing and farming hamlet, Worthing is a historic seaside town situated in West Sussex.

Worthing was the first towns in West Sussex where audiences paid to see films, and is home to famous Edwardian cinema; The Dome, first opened in April 1911, where it still stands today. Much of David Leland's feature film "Wish You Were Here" was shot in The Dome. 

As one of the biggest seaside towns on the South Coast, this traditional seaside town is an integration of classic and contemporary and has so much to offer for filmmakers, from a Victorian Pier, National Parks and Medieval Monuments

Worthing is just 90 minutes from London Victoria by train and 20 minutes from Brighton.
