My other half took me here just after my birthday. I really can't praise it enough. The castle itself was amazing and the gardens were so unexpected. It was lovely weather so we were lucky. Arundel itself is just so pretty we really enjoyed the whole day

Quite interesting, we went during the bank holiday festival which made it better. However it is expensive to get in and the ticket prices are varied and confusing. Most everyone in the queue struggled to work out which ticket to get and gift aid was poorly explained. The restaurant is disappointing for what they charge so I would suggest taking... More

Excellent for a day out, worth paying the extra to go inside the main castle, well kept with guides to help you.

A wonderful afternoon visit around the Castle and Gardens, well worth it for History buffs, lots of stairs to climb within the Castle but it has to be done.

This is the third time I have been to the castle, on a grey day we managed to look around the gardens between the rain showers. The castle grounds are delightful, with lots of beautiful flowers and peaceful nooks to discover. We didn't manage to see all of the grounds as my youngest son was getting tired, it was great...

There is quite a lot to see. We spent four hours and saw most of the gardens and main part of the castle, and had lunch.

The castle is very large and very old. The keep is most unusual and not like most castles in England. There are 131 steps to the top. The view is worth the climb. Most of the rooms have been restored to Victorian times. As others have said the price for a gold+ ticket is a bit steep at 15 1/2... More

Absolutely beautiful place, castle, gardens, everything. You have the option of paying just for the grounds or for inside the castle as well which is a good idea. Outside there are extensive grounds and gardens, you are allowed to just wander at your leisure, sit under a tree and have a picnic (which I highly recommend) or go and see... More
