Why Move to Shoreham by Sea
Shoreham-by-Sea (or just Shoreham) could not be in a more pleasing location. A coastal gem with a rich maritime history, the town sits right at the mouth of the Adur River along with the beautiful South Downs as a backdrop and the rolling hills of the open Adur Valley to its west.
The Sussex Coast is renowned for its wonderful seascape and there is a beach for everyone from Cosmopolitan Brighton Beach to the wide-open shores of Camber Sands. Whilst Shoreham beach is a designated Site of Nature Conservation Interest thanks to the internationally rare habitat of its vegetated shingle.
Once dubbed Hollywood-by-the-Sea due to its links with the silent movie industry, the Sunny South Film Company had a film studio based in the town during the early 1900’s.
The pedestrianised shopping hub of the town is intermingled with a number of traditional local pubs and restaurants which spill onto the pavement in the summer giving a contrasting Mediterranean vibe to the towns older buildings.
Essential amenities are within walking distance of the town centre where you will find a modern health centre, a library, community centre and post office.
Whilst Shoreham was often seen as a retirement destination, these days its reputation is more of a modern upcoming commuter area due to its great travel connections; it is fast becoming a not-so-far from the city small-town location.
London can be reached by rail in under an hour and 20 minutes and the city of Portsmouth is just 55 minutes away. Road travel is also very convenient, and Brighton, Worthing and Eastbourne are via the nearby M27. The closest airport is Gatwick, 32 miles or a quick half an hour by rail.
The quality of our lives has never been under so much scrutiny. Having had time to reflect on what is important to us, it is obvious why so many are heading out of the larger towns and cities in the UK in search of the more relaxed and laid-back standard of living places like Shoreham can offer.
Schools & Education
The schools, education and learning services in Adur, Shoreham’s district, are run by West Sussex County Council.
Within 2 miles of the towns centre there are over 15 schools, these range from primary to further education. Most are state run schools but there are a small number of independents available as well.
Primaries which have been rated highly by Ofsted include Eastbrook Primary Academy, West Hove Infant School and Hill Park School, a community special school. All three were awarded a rating of “outstanding”.
Following Shoreham Academy, a mainstream, state funded senior school’s inspection, it was a reported that “teaching and learning at the academy are outstanding”. Outcomes for students in all key stages are consistently above Government benchmarks.
There are several options for students applying to attend college but one of the most popular is Greater Brighton Metropolitan College (the Met).
The Met offers five campuses across Brighton, Worthing and Shoreham.
Facilities include a professionally equipped theatre, state-of-the-art recording studios and a range of studios and workshops for creative practices such as painting, printmaking, ceramics, textiles, photography, graphics and media.
Things to do in Shoreham by Sea
There will be “never a dull moment” with regards to finding things to do when you live in Shoreham.
As you would expect from any self-respecting seaside town, a day at the local beach is high on the entertainments list not just in the summer but throughout the winter too. Nothing beats a bracing walk along the sea front on a windy day.
Come summer activity increases and Shoreham becomes an extremely popular venue for windsurfing and kitesurfing and has hosted both national and international competitions.
Two local museums ensure that the towns history is well and truly alive. Marlipins Museum with its unusual, checked flint facing, one of the oldest secular buildings in the country is all about Shoreham’s maritime past.
Shoreham Airport Collection has a host of archive and historical displays featured around one of the oldest airports in the UK. The Grade II listed terminal building and hangar and the runways are such an interesting place to visit.
The River Adur Estuary is great for getting close to seagulls, waders, and many other wild birds. There are pleasant walks on the towpaths on both sides of the river, from Shoreham-by-Sea to Bramber, with the passage passable for bicycles, if you can put up with lifting your bicycle over a few stiles.
The South Downs National Park is known as the ‘gateway to England’. Its rolling green hills, globally important chalk grassland, ancient woodland, dark night skies, wildlife-rich heathland and windswept cliffs represents nature at it best and so easy to get to.
Living in Shoreham is about more than just its beautiful surroundings it has some great properties too.
An ancient town with a long history which is divided into the “old” and “new”. This means living here offers a little of both. Old cottages and characterful buildings and new purpose-built homes.
Relatively speaking the cost of a home is expensive in Shoreham. Over the past year the overall average cost has been £410,949, not cheap, but still much more affordable when compared to London.
