Overview
  • One of the most complete examples of an English Castle
  • Hear the stories of 900 years of tumultuous and peaceful history
  • Amazing views of West Sussex and the south coast
  • Visit the quintessentially English town of Arundel

Arundel Castle is one of England’s best examples of a Norman structure built and extended over the centuries whilst retaining its magnificence.

It’s an enormous castle built with defences and to be lived in, even boasting a ruined Norman castle keep. The castle has some of Britain’s most precious art and artefacts.

Over 900 years old, Arundel Castle is where medieval Matilda sought refuge during her claim to the throne and the angst with her cousin King Stephen in England’s 12th-century civil war, known as The Anarchy.

Follow the footsteps of kings, queens, dukes, earls and knights. See the medieval weapons in the armoury and hear the stories of its nobility, the royal residents and visitors. – Even embrace the serenity in the 14th century Fitzalan Chapel.

If all that’s not enough, walk through its delightful gardens and – as it overlooks the charming town of Arundel – admire the surrounding countryside and coast of West Sussex.

This is the real England!

Arundel Castle and the beautiful English countryside are so impressive you will be glad you set time aside to visit it. – It will become evident why it is the seat of the Duke of Norfolk, the premier duke in the peerage of England and the successor Earls of Arundel.

N.B. Jousting during some summer days. The castle is closed in winter. Please enquire for information.
