I have visited this castle and grounds previously and so already know it is a good place to take visitors. Last weekend the weather was fine and the gardens - full of tulips - looked quite magnificent. We put aside 4 hours and the only reason we left was because we had another appointment - we could easily have stayed... More

This is my third visit to the castle of Arundel. Each time it was different and more interesting. This time our visit fell in April and can not imagine a more beautiful time of year to visit family residence of the Norfolk. Expositions is changed, for me it was an interesting discovery has previously visited sites. The most impresses a... More

we visited on a bright sunny day and chose to just explore the gardens, we were not disappointed. We also visited the nearby wetlands which are worth a visit. A buggy will take you to the top of the hill if walking is a problem. A very picturesque castle in a most attractive village,

We visited the castle with our 16 month old daughter. The staff at the gate were very helpful and explain which areas were/were not accessible with a pushchair so we were able to make an informed decision on which tickets to go for. The walk up to the castle is a bit steep when pushing a pushchair, but worth it,... More

Spent a beautiful sunny day here last May with friends. We thoroughly enjoyed touring the castle and the grounds were fabulous. The gardens and water features were all immaculate and we managed to spend hours and hours here. We also enjoyed a tea and cream cake in the cafe :-) The day we visited also had a medieval reenactment taking... More

An excellent venue for a great day out. Felt that for price an audio guide could be provided & could provide for non English speakers too.

We visited Arundel castle as we were in the area and had never been there before. Parking is convenient in the public car park opposite the entrance (£5 for 4 hours+) The castle is very interesting and the grounds and gardens are delightful. Well worth a visit. Being a castle there are of course a lot of slopes and steps.... More

Just had a brilliant day out at the castle and the grounds, we payed for everything to see see, used gift aid which was taken off the entry tickets and given back as a voucher for money off the castle restaurant and shop, saving money on the day. The castle was big lots to look at, loads of rooms and... More

This must be one of the most beautiful castles imaginable. There are plenty of rooms, stairways and corridors to explore. Fantastic views from the keep. The grounds and gardens are an absolute pleasure and the Fitzalan Chapel provides a moment of quiet reflection. Don't forget the castle is closed on Mondays.

This castle is absolutely magical. From the outside it looks like a castle out of a Disney film and is fully furnished on the inside (which I think is always a nice touch). The gardens with its many fountains are gorgeous. Great for strolling around, do some photography or just sit on one of the many benches and enjoy the... More
