  • "In praise of Arundel Castle! - Wow ,wow, wow is all I can say about this fabulous castle. It is stunning inside and out...I had a wonderful time".

    Netmums Jenny says: Arundel Castle is one of the most beautiful places we have visited recently. We went along for the day yesterday with our two children (10 & 6) to watch the castle's siege event - it was fabulous. Everyone who took part was so knowledgeable about the period, they really did interact with the children and loved sharing stories of how life was back then. The castle itself is beautifully presented and we loved walking round every part of it and taking in the sights. You need about two to three hours to really enjoy your visit to this amazingly well preserved castle...we had Gold + tickets and they were worth every penny. There were plenty of staff on duty around the castle, who offered additional information if asked, they were all extremely friendly and seemed to love children - which is always a plus.I would highly recommend a trip to Arundel as it is a beautiful town...the castle is one of the best parts, we will most certainly go again.


“Every turn was another 'wow' moment! This castle is truly stunning. The gardens are by far the best we have seen for a long time. The tulips at the moment are stunning. The stumpery is like walking through a primeval landscape, but is awesome…

“Fantastic, gorgeous gardens and beautiful castle.  I'm so glad I visited Arundel during this time. The gardens and the various flowers on display were just absolutely stunning…All in all, a really enjoyable visit in a beautiful town and I'd definitely come back again. One of the best castles in England!!”
