Is the Worthing Area a Commuter Paradise?
Simply put, commuting is to travel some distance between one’s home and place of work on a regular basis. However, it can be seen as so much more than that. A difference in culture, scenery and diversity.
Since the Covid pandameic, many workers no longer have to work from the office each day, and instead can adopt a ‘hybrid’ way of working. There are more and more people relocating out of London and moving down to West Sussex, and in particular Worthing, as it offers fantastic commuter links and a wonderful new way of life outside London.
According to card payment provider Dojo, Worthing saw a 4.26% growth throughout 2020, making it the third most successful commuter town in their report.
Jon Knott, from Dojo, said:
“During the course of the coronavirus pandemic, the interest in commuter towns has seen a substantial increase.”
Worthing is an expectionally well-connected town. With trainlines and car routes to neighbouring towns/cities within the range of thirty to forty minutes and a train journey to London only an hour and a half, it’s easy to see why many choose to relocate here. Even for holiday-seekers, Gatwick Airport is under an hour via car or train.
In 2018, Worthing was named in the top ten commuter towns when taking into account house prices and commuting costs.
If you’re a young family, Worthing has an abundance of kid-friendly activities. First-time buyers can invest in the community and have a place to bring up their children. You can find plenty of schools and community clubs plus tons of great things to do for all.
