Worthing has the charm of an English village. The city with its 100,000 inhabitants has a illustrious name that can be translated as »place of brave and noble people«. In 1894 Oscar Wilde wrote his play »The Importance of Being Earnest« here. He named one of his characters, Jack Worthing, after this charming city. Even today, Worthing retains the charm of Good Old England. Particularly worth seeing are Worthing Pier, Goring Castle from 1790 and the Worthing Museum & Art Gallery, which contains the largest collection of costumes and toys in the country.
A school trip to Worthing is ideal for all student groups and teachers who have already explored southeast England and stayed in Hastings or Bexhill-on-Sea. The good connection to the motorway allows for a variety of interesting excursions.
