Arundel Area

 

 

There is no end to the list of things to do in Arundel, whether it is meandering around antique shops or going for long country walks.

The town of Arundel itself is dominated by the Castle, the second largest in England. Originally established at the time of the Norman Conquest, this impressive building was later to become the home of the Dukes of Norfolk, hereditary Earls Marshall of England. It was obviously a wise move since successive members of the family have remained in residence for over 400 years! It's well worth a visit, please note it is closed between November to April.

This side of the Castle walls, the town is a visitors dream - As well as the beautiful architecture of this lovely Georgian market town there are some quite individual shops to look around with the quaint narrow streets, full of antique shops and eating places, is all set above the tranquil setting of the River Arun

The Cathedral is open all year, and free. It is a beautiful place to have a quiet wander.

There are some amazing walks around the area one being through Arundel Park for about 4 miles and has the most breath taking scenery over towards Amberly and Houghton.

Places to visit nearby include Chichester, Petworth, Goodwood, Singleton and Fishbourne just to name a few.
