Arundel Castle and Gardens

Arundel Castle and Gardens

I recommend visiting Arundel Castle and it’s attractive gardens. This restored medieval castle overlooks the River Arun and was built at the end of the 11th century by Roger de Montgomery, Earl of Arundel

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 make sure you explore the small historic town. I also recommend visiting the museum, which is almost opposite the castle.

The castle and grounds are usually open from April until November on Tuesday to Sunday each week. They are also open on some Mondays.

Arundel is just a half an hour’s drive from Steyning and well worth a visit.

A great day out if you stay at Rosebud Cottage
