Worthing has had a long and prestigious history, first mentioned in the Doomsday Book when it had a population of just 22. Worthing has since grown to be the second largest town in West Sussex with a population approaching 100,000.
While the Prince Regent was drawn to Brighton, King George III preferred, on the advice of his physicians, to send his daughter Amelia to Worthing. It was not long after this that other fashionable people began to sample the water. In 1862 when the town was a popular seaside resort where people came to take in the sea air, the first pier opened.
Two years later in 1864 building began on this hotel. The commemorative trowel from the laying of the first stone can be found on display in the bar. The novelist and playwright Oscar Wilde is reputed to have stayed here when he wrote ‘The Importance Of Being Ernest’ in 1884. The Burlington Hotel has an altogether more dubious claim to fame, in that Musslini’s Ambassador is also reputed to have stayed here.
The Burlington Hotel first opened in 1865 and was originally named the Heene Hotel.
In its time, The Burlington Hotel was luxurious and opulent. Through the years, it has experienced many changes, and by the time the hotel was brought in February 2002, it had little of its original glory. The hotel has now been completely renovated and refurbished in a contemporary style in sympathy toits historic architecture. The hotel has become one of the most popular venues in Worthing and is renowned for its restaurant, bar and late night venue and is Worthing’s oldest and newest hotel.
Worthing is now the largest town in West Sussex and it is fitting that The Burlington once again resumes its position as the only prestigious purpose built hotel.
