Went here last year. This garden is astonishing, every time you turn a corner there is something else to look at. The flowers are beautiful and the gardeners very chatty and helpful. Nicer than many bigger and better known gardens. If you combine your visit to a day when there is something else going on in the castle grounds it is better value otherwise a bit expensive. my only real gripe is the extortionate cost of parking in Arundel and that is not the fault of these gardens. The town is good to visit especially if you like antique shops. Beware there are no longer any banks in the town and we had to go to the post office for cash.

Phenomenal gardens, lots of ‘rooms’ to investigate.

Lots of ideas.

We visited in summer and it was pretty special. Just missed out on the rose garden but so much colour and scent!

I’ve put my full review on Arundel Castle.

A little confused by the lower ratings on here but the comments are positive.

These stunning gardens are designed as a series of interconnected rooms with their green oak Pagodas (one of which is architecturally decorated with antlers), water features and fountains and Oberon's Palace with its shell grotto inside.

Opened in 2008 as a tribute to Thomas Howard, the 14th Earl of Arundel, the gardens have lush planting and different characteristics as you move from one of the 'rooms' to another, exploring the different spaces and hidden corners, while as a backcloth you can see Arundel Cathedral and the Church of St Nicholas over the hedges.

The Earl's Garden leads onto other gardens - the rose and vegetable gardens and the glass houses.

The Gardens are not to be missed and a delightful surprise to find on visiting the Castle, while there is also a new Water Garden, as a wildlife reserve, on the site of the Stew Ponds.

This is a stunning garden, not only because the planting is varied and colourful but the structures within the garden are also incredible.

Didnt realise it had separate listing from castle.Rounds off a visit nicely after castle.Really superb gardens beautifully landscaped with so many varieties of plants and colours. Fountains and water features.One of best gardens I have visited on my travels.Worth a visit if u didnt fancy castle or just a few sections as price guide allows u to do 4 options full visit or just gardens.

Really wonderful gardens, full of surprises.
Not large, but well laid out, with greenhouses, kitchen garden, shell memorial, fountains and water features galore, and beauty wherever you looked.

Beautiful garden, part of the Casle complex with lots of hidden gardens for relaxing in, catching the sun, reading and socially distancing.
