Arundel Castle

In the splendour of the South Downs, Arundel is an adorable town commanded by one of England’s most complete medieval castles.

Arundel was mentioned in the Domesday Book in 1086, and the castle had been founded in 1067 within months of the Norman Conquest of England.

It was damaged in the Civil War in the 1600s, but was restored in the 1700s and is now one of Sussex’s most-visited attractions, with an armoury, chapel, dry moat and vistas of the River Arun and countryside from its fairytale towers.

The cathedral in Arundel may look for all the world like it is medieval but actually dates to the 1800s, has a French Gothic style and was designed by Joseph Hansom famed for his Hansom horse-drawn cabs.
