Accessible Shoreham-by-Sea

Shoreham-by-Sea enjoys a unique location, bordered on the North by the South Downs National Park, on the West by Worthing and on the East by the regency city of Brighton. Old Shoreham dates back to pre-Roman times, however the town and port of New Shoreham was built by the Norman conquerors towards the end of the 11th century. This mix of history can be seen in the style of architecture round the town, old cottages mix with regal house's and medieval churches. With the arrival of the railway in 1840 Shoreham rose to fame as a Victorian sea port, with several shipyards and an active coasting trade. Shoreham Harbour is still in commercial operation today. Today Shoreham-on-sea town has a vibrant new development along its riverside and harbour front, offering restaurants and shops for all tastes. The beach to the south of the town, is a shingle bank developed over centuries by the sea,there is a path along the beach accessible for wheelchairs. There's also a new swing bridge crossing the River Adur, that is accessible by pedestrians and wheelchair users. Known as the Adur Ferry Bridge it replaces the old narrow drawbridge built in the 1920s. This new pedestrian, wheelchair and cycle crossing provides a more accessible, direct link between Shoreham Beach, the town centre and the railway station. Palm tree cottage offers a place of tranquility and comfort while you freely explore Shoreham-on-sea and the beautiful Sussex coastline.
