Arundel Castle reopens on 2nd April 2019
I recommend visiting Arundel Castle and it’s attractive gardens. The castle overlooks the River Arun and was built at the end of the 11th century. The oldest feature is the motte (an artificial mound) which dates from 1068. You can see it in the photo below.
Whilst you are in Arundel you can explore the small historic town and could also visit the museum, which is almost opposite the castle.
In 2019 the castle and grounds will be open until November from Tuesday to Sunday each week
They will also be open on some Mondays
Steyning Farmers Market
Steyning Farmers Market takes place in the High Street car park opposite the clock tower. Turn up between 9 a.m to 1 p.m on the first Saturday of the month.
This is a popular event. It’s a great opportunity to stock up on local produce. Vegetables, meat and cheeses are all on sale. You will also find some stalls selling plants.
There is usually live music to entertain you whilst you shop.
You can often combine an evening at The Steyning Jazz Club and the following morning at the market. Jazz is on the first Friday of the month.
How to get there
The market is just a few minutes walk from Rosebud Holiday Cottage
