Shoreham is the oldest airport in the UK, aviator Harold Piffard first flying there in 1910, although the aerodrome only officially opened on 20 June 1911. In 1914, the first flight of British military aircraft left from Shoreham to join the fighting in France. In the 1930s the airfield became an airport for Brighton, Hove and Worthing and a new Art Deco terminal building was opened in 1936. This is still in use and is now Grade II listed. During the Second World War, Shoreham again served as a military airfield, coming under attack several times. The airfield is still operational today, although owned by a property company and is used by light aircraft and flying schools and as a venue for an air show and a filming location.
