Category: Discovering Worthing


On the way home from school today my big daughter suggested we go out for dinner to celebrate hump day (she said hill day, but you know – Wednesday). We’ve been meaning to try Fiordilatte for a while now but keep not getting around to it.  It’s about 20 minutes walk from home (along the seafront), and the sun was shining and what’s more glorious on a coming-up-to-the-end-of-half-term Wednesday night than a stroll in the sunshine on Worthing beach? Also, the alternative was quiche which I hadn’t actually got around to making yet (I was too busy trying this...

The Dome Cinema in Worthing

The Dome is one of our new favorite places in Worthing.  For starters, it’s a beauty, but also it often does Friday 6pm shows for kids, which feel like a ‘proper’ night out.  And has a lovely bar where you can buy a coffee. It also has lots of character and period flourishes, so makes a trip to the Cinema a beautiful treat. I’ve been telling anyone who’ll listen about it so wanted to share some pics.  I also wrote about the attached Dome Vintage Tearoom (where we read a 1974 copy of The Beano on friday) in my last post Beautiful...

Glorious, Sunshiny Worthing

I keep having to give myself a pinch.  Last summer it felt like the move to Worthing might never happen and I spent time and energy managing my own expectations in case it never did.

We discovered The Dome Vintage Tearoom this week (and thoroughly recommend their...

A greedy post about a meal in the sun last week at Coast

I got a bit of flack for my last post where I said I hadn’t yet found any ‘stand out’ food in Worthing yet.  I am a little spoilt, as we just moved from Brighton where there are loads of excellent eateries.  I appreciate that local residents have their favorites built over time and with trust.  I am very grateful for the recommendations (a restaurant can have off days of course, but true loyalty is built by people coming back again and again).  It will take me a little while to work through them. I work and have kids and...

Five good things about Worthing

People watching at Coast Cafe/cafe des Artistes, February 2016 Girls in the lookout at cafe des Artistes/Coast cafe, Worthing Coffee served with a smidge of chocolate at Coast cafe in Worthing The beach Its quiet.  There’s some sunbathing in the summer.  Families beach-combing.  A bit of dog walking and sea swimming.  But no teeming hoards. The water is shallow with no quick drop-off (like in Brighton), which means its good for swimming and water-sports.  We swim on the Beaches the East side of Splashpoint Pool (at the bottom of Ham road).  In the summer the water is lovely and...
