A Walk Around The Worthing Poets Area

Many towns have an area of housing named after famous poets and Worthing is no exception. Just to the east of Heene Road we have (amongst others) Byron Road, Shakespeare Road, Longfellow Road and Shelley Road.

These are some of the most popular roads in the town for property buyers and tenants due to the convenience of the location for rail, sea, and town.

To those not familiar with the area, let us take you on a virtual tour and show you some of the highlights.

If you were to start at our Heene Road office and walk 50 metres south, a left turn takes you into Browning Road an Edwardian street of semi and detached houses many of which have now been converted into spacious two bedroom flats many with allocated gardens.

At the end of its road you arrive at Shakespeare Road where the properties are larger and many remain as single houses with a few converted into flats.

Shakespeare Road is adjacent to Victoria Park, a large open space with football pitches and children's play areas particularly popular in the summer months. Shakespeare Road will lead you to Shelley Road, a busy thoroughfare leading to Worthing Town Centre itself.



Many of these large and imposing Victorian villas have been converted into residential care homes, although a number of them were demolished many years ago to make way for large purpose built blocks of flats of varying quality.

Wordsworth Road is the most southerly of the poet streets running directly off the seafront. These large Edwardian red brick and tile properties are terrace/semi-detached but much larger than they look although they do have smallish gardens.

The whole location is proven particularly popular with buyers from London and Brighton who can see the potential of the location and the beautiful homes that the properties can make. Worthing's poet area certainly does have something for every taste.
