I'm not always a fan of walking through historic castles and mansions. Sometimes I just find myself getting bored. But this was a great experience top to bottom. First of all it's very cool going through the different parts of the castle as they relate...More

Probably the most picturesque location in Sussex. It's got it all despite being a relatively modern castle. The grounds are superb the castle is interesting and very grand inside. The location in Arundel next to the river has loads of parking.

hi, we paid £22.00 each for access for all the castle and the grounds, have a look on the castle website and there is a list of various price options if you go you can take a picnic into the grounds to eat, hope you enjoy
Is there parking available? Are we allowed picnics and if so, are there picnic facilities? Thanks.
