Shoreham Airport

Shoreham Airport

Shoreham Airport is at the forefront of general aviation in the UK, and a major base for flying activities on the South Coast. The City of Brighton & Hove and the town of Worthing are both within easy travelling distance from the Airport and the Shoreham by Sea railway station will provide the means to get you to Gatwick, London and beyond.


In 1930 the municipal authorities of Brighton, Hove and Worthing formed a joint committee to establish Shoreham as the municipal airport for three towns. Construction on the Terminal Building began in November 1934.

During 1935 the Croydon based company Olley Air Services Ltd., was appointed to manage the aerodrome and a service, Croydon-Shoreham-Deauville was started on the l3th July. On the 13th June 1936 this exquisite art-deco Terminal Building was officially opened by the Mayors of Brighton, Hove and Worthing. The building remains today very much in its original shape and as always, is still very much open to the public.

Shoreham Airport is still at the forefront of general aviation in this country. The Terminal Building is now a Grade II listed building and is still in every day use by business, training and pleasure fliers alike including many visitors from Europe. Many of the fixtures are original including the Whispering Gallery on the first floor and the main window design above the main entrance.

With its friendly stress-free atmosphere, Shoreham Airport offers all the requirements for modern aviation including executive and business travel, scheduled flights to France, flight instruction and pleasure flights, as well as excellent conference and meeting facilities.

Shoreham is the oldest licensed airfield in the UK and has a beautiful Grade II* listed art deco style Terminal Building. The outside viewing areas offer an exciting opportunity to enjoy aviation in a pleasant environment and a visit to the Airports Visitor Centre is a must for a family outing where guided tours can be arranged for anyone wishing to see and hear the history of the airfield.
