  • During May & June 2017 eruptions of pom-pom headed alliums will burst into bloom at Arundel Castle.

    Exploding into flower with bright blooms towering over neighbouring plants, it’s easy to see why alliums are a firm favourite with the nation’s gardeners and nicknamed the ‘fireworks of gardening’.

    The allium display can be seen throughout the Walled Gardens at Arundel Castle with over fourteen varieties on show, some of which may grow up to five feet high.

    Head Gardener Martin Duncan explains: “This allium display brings a fresh new burst of colour and intrigue to the Collector Earl’s Gardens and will be the perfect follow up to the Tulip Festival. We have deliberately selected tall ornamental alliums to create the illusion of them bursting like fireworks above neighbouring flowers. With names like ‘Mount Everest’ it’s easy to understand the visual impact that these flowers will deliver and why they are such a talking point in the gardens”.

  • Welcome to Arundel Castle & Gardens - Ancient Castle, Stately Home & Gardens

    Set high on a hill in West Sussex, this great Castle commands the landscape with magnificent views across the South Downs and the River Arun.

    Founded at the end of the 11th Century, it has been the family home of the Dukes of Norfolk and their ancestors for nearly 1000 years.

    Learn more about the Castle

  • Arundel Castle is one of the longest inhabited country houses in England. Many of the original features such as the crenellated Norman keep, gatehouse and barbican and the lower part of Bevis Tower survive. Between the 1870s and 1890s the house was almost completely rebuilt and the magnificent architecture in Gothic style is considered to be one of the great works of Victorian England.

    Enjoy the grandeur of the finely preserved interior with its fascinating furniture, tapestries and rare collection of paintings by renowned artists including Van Dyck, Gainsborough and Canaletto.
