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.

A wonderful attraction that serves as the focal point of Arundel. Stunning gardens too that compliments the sheer spectacle of the castle. Definitely visit.

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!

Was here with a fairly severely handicapped friend towards the end of the visiting season last autumn. On arrival it seemed quite expensive and as we only had a couple of hours available decided to buy the Bronze ticket, which covers all the gardens and grounds, the shop, café and restaurant, and the Fitzalan Chapel. We'll certainly be returning (this... More

It closes for most of winter and some of spring. But it's well worth a whole day's visit. Fantastic gardens, great castle with so much to see. I spent an entire day there with my 3 year old.

Arundel castle is a must if your in the area, on summer the whole area is at its best, but you need a whole day to take it all in.

I live in Arundel and agree with everyone that says that a visit to the Castle is a must. However, whilst working in the town last Saturday I found that so many visitors had been reading the reviews on Tripadvisor (written recently) and had travelled quite a way only to find the Castle closed. This is disappointing especially for children.... More
