We bought the gold plus tickets which allowed us to visit everywhere which was well worth buying. We found the staff very informative and helpful and would definately recommend this place. Drinks and snacks were pricey but what we... More

Travelled with an over 60's group from Romford, and from the moment you enter the castle the professional attitude of the staff is evident, knowledgable, friendly and above all time to explain answers to your questions. It is a privledlge to be able to enter a castle that is still lived in by one of our noble families. Plenty to... More

We had an absolutely brilliant time, everybody was very friendly and happy to inform about the castle history etc. (also towards the children), and we enjoyed every aspect of our visit. There was plenty to see and do, I would definitely recommend a visit to Arundel Castle to anybody. Thank you for giving us such a good day out!

I visited with my two young children and toddler in pram so we only visited the gardens but they were magnificent. The children and I loved them. I dogs find it pricey but we spent a good three hours there and our hands were stamped when we left so we could have come back in.

Arundel Castle and Gardens Sometimes everything just so good. On our little excursion from London, we came to Arundel and the castle. Clear directions meant we quickly found was we would park, and there stood a very nice man and showed us exactly where we would put the car. Very plenty of parking meters also made it part of the...
