One of the best days in England. We spent most of the rainy day touring the castle at our leisure. It was good to see how it is still being used today and so well maintined. The gardens are among the best.

The visit to was unplanned but turned out to be a great day out. The castle and the gardens are beautiful and very well looked after. The only negative thing About the visit was the never ending stream of school groups making their rather loud way through the castle. It would have been nicer without them, but there you go.

We spent 6 hours here and still didn't see all of the exhibits and grounds properly. All the rooms have a guide all of whom are very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the Castle. Exhibits are labelled and there are not too many information boards which can sometimes carry TOO much information. There is not much seating within the Castle for... More

A great place to visit and get a feel for a living and working castle. Enough signs of current occupation to blow your mind about how the other half live and enough old and creaky features to evoke the past. beautiful grounds too. If you are in this area, you really do need to pay it a visit

Arundel castle is a fantastic place to visit. The gardens are wonderful, that's coming from a person who is not normally into that kind of thing. The views from the keep are stunning. Our children 6,5,3 loved it too, although climbing all the stairs did tire them out. It would have got five stars except that part of the castle... More
