Visited Arundel Castle last week with my grandson and husband. It is very good value for money and you can easily spend all day there exploring the castle and grounds. My grandson enjoyed exploring the castle especially the keep. The whole area is extremely clean and tidy and the taff and volunteers are very pleasant. The restaurant/cafe provided a good... More

We took a long walk around the castle gardens. They are a lovely trip out. The kitchen garden is the best bit- you can walk around and see all kinds of fresh vegetables growing. The walled gardens are also worth the walk. Very well designed and kept so tidy. Really beautiful on a sunny day. Also try the cake in... More

Fantastic day out!! Great value for all.... Go for gold+.... The bedrooms offer a real insight to the life of the countries top ranking duke!! The guides are very knowledgable and willing to chat all the time! A family pass includes 2 adults and 3 children... The keep is a bit of a climb but worth every step and the... More

We've been here a few times (my parents live in Arundel) but this was the first time in the gardens. They are absolutely exquisite. Several different sections, many with the Cathedral in the background. Colourful, imaginative and with a marvellous water feature that reminded us of Bali (not exactly expected in West Sussex!). Don't miss this!

Arundel Castle is an example of how a castle remains contemporary for an actual family. It isn't the same historical extravaganza as you would see at Warwick Castle - Arundel, while having parts going back to 1200, was extensively rebuilt during the Victorian era so much of it looks the part but isn't that old. It also has had some... More

Arundel Castle dates back over 100 years! It is a huge castle, and is still used occasionally by the family. There are several options for entry tickets, and it is well worth it to purchase the tickets which allow entry to all areas, including the bedrooms. We were told that the family may have guests in these bedrooms. The castle... More

It's rare that i'll rate somewhere a 5, but this place completely blew me away. The admission charge was a bit steep, but there was a sliding scale of charges based on what you wanted to actually see. The castle itself is MASSIVE, and truly stunning - very european in its design. The gardens as well are completely worth the... More

What a complete rip off!! They are clearly more interested in taking your money than giving you a good experience!!! :-( No denying this is a lovely castle even though you only get to see about 25% of the full castle, but my disabled wife, daughter and I arrived at 3pm, were advised that as there was jousting we had...

We kept putting off visiting as we always thought it was a bit pricey, but as it was a birthday treat we thought we'd go for it, and went for the gold plus ticket. The gardens were spectacular, very interesting and unusual; we took lots of lovely photos. We loved the planting and landscaping, there were some really unusual aspects.... More

Arundel Castle is an incredible day out. Especially if it is raining buckets which is what it was doing on the day we went. This is stepping back in time but also having a birds eye view on how the family of the Duke of Norfolk like to organise their family home. And what a home it is. You can... More
