Now an increasingly popular and interesting resort, the history of Shoreham is firmly rooted in the days when the Saxons came to these parts at around the time of the 5th-century. Shoreham has three beautiful churches but the town itself is dominated by the Norman church of St.Mary de Havre which dates 1103. St. Julians, dates 11th-century and the church of St.Nicholas which has been extensively renovated, incorporates Saxon work, thus evidencing Shorehams early beginnings. All three churches have reminders of an ancient past and are a source of fascination and inspiration.
Shoreham has a natural harbour of about a mile long and the harbour wall is a favourite haunt of fishermen. It is a very pleasant place to while away a few hours, unwinding and chatting to the locals who are always willing to regale you with old seafaring tales and daring deeds of yesteryear. There are magnificent coastal views in every direction and from the bridge that crosses the River Adur there is a stunning view of the town and the old Norman church.
Marlipins Museum, dates back to the 12th-century, it is a fascinating building, said to be one of the oldest of it's kind in Europe. There are several other old and interesting buildings in the town.
Shoreham, although a quieter resort than the nearby larger resorts of Worthing and Brighton, offers good surfing and sailing and excellent shopping facilities. There are splendid inns to be found both in the town and surrounding countryside.
