From the moment you enter the town the castle is an imposing sight. We can understand this place was part of great events/ people in history, well presented and with lots to see. The gardens and grounds are beautiful too so hope for a visit in good weather.

While a little on the pricey side Arundel Castle is a great day out with many interesting features. The gardens are well worth exploring with various sections and points of interest throughout the expansive grounds. The castle itself stands quite strikingly looking out over the surrounding area and really is quite a beautiful structure and is in amazing condition. Walking... More

A castle that is still a home so it is well maintained and well worth a visit. Some of the portraits and history of the ancestors leave you in no doubt as to why the ended up with a castle. Take a look.

Arundel Castle was begun on Christmas Day in 1067, but, for a garden-lover, the New Collector Earl's Garden, which was opened in 2008, is the highlight at Arundel. Various tours of the Castle are offered, but the Castle has a bit of a theme-park feel. Better to spend your time enjoying the delightful and tranquil Collector Earl's Garden. Designed by... More

I've been to this castle twice and each visit was an excellent experience. The castle itself is beautiful with the small cathedral within the castle being my favorite room. They have a cafeteria within the castle for a quick bite. Wondering the grounds and gardens around the castle was worth the time spent.

Arundel castle is a exceptional piece of architecture that dominates the skyline of Arundel along with the Cathedral. There is a lot to see and do. If you do not have a lot of time, then the bronze ticket is perfect as that takes in the castle grounds and gardens, the Fitzalan Chapel, Restaurant, Shop and café. The best value... More

A good day out but you should be fit to take full advantage. On a warm sunny Spring day full advantage of the gardens can be taken and a picnic in the castle grounds would be perfect but take your rubbish home!
