Shoreham-by-Sea Certificated Locations

The town of Shoreham is easily split into three distinct areas: Old Shoreham, New Shoreham and the harbour. Each of these have their own charm and attractions.

Old Shoreham is centred around the Church of St Nicholas that dates back to the 9th century, but its most famous site is a bridge crossing the River Adur, which was constructed in 1781.

The two standout attractions in New Shoreham are the Church of St Mary de Haura and Marlipins Museum. The latter is the oldest non-religious building in Sussex and is instantly recognisable with its chequered fa├žade.


At the entrance to the harbour stands Shoreham Redoubt, a fort that was built in 1857 as a way to help repel invasions by the French.
