Brilliant even if you don't mind climbing 132 stairs to get to the top of the turret, but what a marvellous view when you get there. The gardens where very good with plenty to see.

Arundel Castle, home of the Duke of Norfolk, is absolutely stunning! The interior of the castle is just amazing, the people are friendly and happy to talk about the history and it's all just very impressive. My favourite room must be the library where you are surrounded by beautiful mahogany wood, luscious red carpets and curtains and books of course!... More

The castle and gardens are well worth a visit. Many changes have taken place over the centuries but there is still some of the orginal building in place. There are paintings to view and a collection of weapons from over the years. To visit parts of the castle such as the keep you will need to be reasonably fit as... More

The view of Arundel from the outside is stunning. The inside is equally amazing although you are limited to where you can wonder. There is an extra charge of £2 per head if you wish to see 'the bedrooms'.

We enjoyed our recent visit to the castle and grounds - beautiful and very interesting. As good as the attraction is I was somewhat surprised at the ticketing system - quite pricey. The tickets are tiered into Bronze through to Gold + - we ended up purchasing silver meaning we could access the grounds, the Keep and the Chapel but... More

This castle is one of the largest and one of the most impressive we've ever seen in Europe, but visitors are only allowed in certain sections even with full (expensive!) tickets. Some section are kept private and others are available for weddings, etc. Externally and internally, it's impressive. Some of the older parts are still visible but most of it... More

We had a very pleasant day visiting the Castle. Visiting the more private part was a bit expensive, but it really was worth it.
