Arundel Castle

Visiting Arundel Castle

Arundel is located in the Sussex village of Arundel. The castle beautifully situated and a commanding presence overlooking the river Arun. The castle and grounds are usually open to the public from easter to autumn. There is a car park, a restaurant and gift shop in the castle.
