A linear seafront walk from Goring-by-Sea railway station to Shoreham-by-Sea railway station in West Sussex, forming the fourth stretch of the Sussex Hospices Trail. The walk is almost entirely along the coast with varied seafront pathways and promenades and fantastic views of the sea throughout. The hospices of Sussex are dedicated to providing specialist end-of-life care. Friends of Sussex Hospices has worked with partners and supporters to create the Sussex Hospices Trail, a 200 mile long-distance path to support and raise awareness of the twelve hospice care providers that serve the adults and children of Sussex. The route goes down, heading south, to the seafront from Goring-by-Sea and then follows the coastline, in an easterly direction, all the way along through Worthing to Shoreham-by-Sea with magnificent views of the English Channel. It is on entirely flat surfaces which vary from suburban pavement, a pretty woodland path, seafront path, a promenade, a short stretch along a pavement next to a busy road before returning to paved seafront footpaths. There is an option for some pebble beach walking. There are a few road crossings that need care, but no stiles to negotiate, just one short flight of steps. Toilets and refreshment stops are plentiful along the route. The return leg can be completed by one train journey or a bus journey. Allow 5 hours.
