Royal Worthing Tours - Just how important was the Royal Family to the creation of Worthing as a seaside resort? How strong are Worthing’s links with the Royals?

Spooky Worthing returns for its sixth year this October and to book your place call 07504 863867 or email Brighton’s ghost tours are great, but Worthing’s are weirder!
