Shoreham Airport Webcam

Shoreham Airport (Brighton City Airport) is located in Shoreham-By-Sea, along the south coast of West Sussex, between Brighton & Hove city and the coastal town of Worthing. Shoreham  Airport offers business travel, flight instruction and pleasure flights.

Shoreham is the oldest licensed airfield in the United Kingdom and has a beautiful Grade II* listed art deco style  Terminal  Building. In 1910, London based artist Harold Piffard set himself up on a piece of grazing land across the river from Shoreham, and so started the story of Shoreham Airport.

On the 13th June 1936 the exquisite Art-Deco terminal building was officially opened by the Mayors of Brighton, Hove and Worthing and The building remains today very much in its original shape and, as always, is still very much open to the public. The opening day at Shoreham hosted an air-show and companies such as Channel Air Ferries, Railway Air Services and Jersey Airways soon started to use the airport.

Within the Terminal Building’s long history, it has seen international and domestic departures and arrivals including some of the world’s largest airlines. With the outbreak of war in 1939 international airline operators were removed from London (Croydon) Airport to Shoreham. These include names like Sabena, DDL, KLM and the predecessor of British Airways, Imperial Airways. Some of the destinations flown to by the above airlines included Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Malmo and Brussels.
