Shoreham was a parliamentary constituency centred on the town of Shoreham-by-Sea in West Sussex. It returned one Member of Parliament to the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom from 1974 to 1997.
This was a safe Conservative seat throughout its existence.
1974-1983: The Urban Districts of Shoreham and Southwick, the Rural District of Chanctonbury, and in the Rural District of Worthing the parishes of Coombes, Findon, Houghton, Lancing, and Sompting.
1983-1997: The District of Adur, and the District of Arun wards of Angmering, East Preston and Kingston, Ferring, Findon, Rustington East, and Rustington West.
The constituency was created for the February 1974 general election, when the Arundel and Shoreham constituency was divided. It was abolished for the 1997 general election, when it was largely replaced by the new East Worthing and Shoreham constituency.
