We visited on a weekend when Jousting was taking place and therefore the castle was extremely busy but there was plenty going on. There is much to see here including the extremely well kept castle, gardens and a lovely shop and cafe.

Unlike many castles where the family still resides there, the areas where the public is allowed is vast. Only one small area is full of mannequins to look like a battle scene, the rest is filled to overflowing with centuries of collected, really expensive, junk...More

Such a lovely place to visit. The staff are very helpful and the castle and grounds are beautiful. You can make a whole day out of it and although we didn’t eat in the cafe it did look nice and clean. I would really recommend...More

Arundel castle & gardens was a lovely day out. The castle is impressive and the gardens are immaculate. I would advise allocating a decent amount of time to the gardens, maybe 90 minutes, as there are so many and well worth a long walk through....More

The castle and gardens are really worth a full day of visit. Beautifully kept, they make for a relaxing stroll and interesting stories. Take advantage and ask questions about the castle/garden/surroundings to the guides/curators in every room. They were very happy to indulge us with...More

Gardens are wonderful, even in September. Castle is beautiful, and I even walked up the keep (I'm 67 yo and not in the best of shape). So worth the price of admission. Before we started our tours, we ate in the cafeteria, where my husband...More

A lot of stairs to climb, often very steep and narrow. Well worth the money; we will be back as we only saw a small part in the days visit. Room guides were excellent and their knowledge was very good. Plus they rotated rooms so...More
