Arundel Castle

Built at the end of the 11th century by Roger de Montgomery, Earl of Arundel, Arundel Castle is sited in 40 acres of magnificent grounds overlooking the river Arun.

It is one of the great treasure houses of England and is home to priceless works of art. Come and see paintings, furniture, tapestries and stained glass, china and clocks, sculpture and carving, heraldry and armour in stunning room settings.

The recently re-landscaped garden was designed in tribute to the 14th Earl of Arundel known as 'The Collector,' and is an evocation of a Jacobean garden.

Facilities include a shop and restaurant.
