Worthing has the feel of a village. 1894 Oscar Wilde wrote his play ”The Importance of Being Earnest“ here. He named his hero, Jack Worthing, after this town. The pier, Castle Goring from 1790, and the Worthing Museum and Art Gallery are especially worth visiting.
A school trip to Worthing is ideal for students of all ages and the perfect starting point for many interesting excursions.
