Garden Castle Must See
It's good to be the King, but Arundel Castle and Gardens shows that being the Duke isn't half bad either. Established in the 11th century and owned by the Duke of Norfolk's family for more than 400 years, this estate features an exemplary English medieval castle and luxurious gardens. Take a self-guided tour through the castle to see opulently furnished rooms. Information placards give you context and history for most of what you'll find here, and the structure provides expansive views of the South Downs and River Arundel. Head into the Fitzalan Chapel, the burial place for members of the Duke of Norfolk's family and a fine example of Gothic architecture. Outside, walk through the exquisite gardens, the crown jewel of which is the Collector Earl's Garden. Admire the green-oak pagodas and the Italianate design of Oberon's Palace here. All of the gardens feature a colorful variety of flowers and other plants. Visit the coffee shop for lighter refreshments or the restaurant for a full meal.

  • If you are into history, a good place to go. Arundel is also a nice place to walk round and lovely tea shops.Parking can be a bit of a problem in high season.
  • An amazing castle with beautiful grounds. We enjoyed the castle so much that we purchased several items from the gift shop. The castle is easily accessible from the town and there are several local B&Bs that overlook the grounds.
