The gardens are classical and very interesting. Unless you want a mile uphill walk it is best to take the buggy. By taking the buggy you arrive fresh to enjoy the garden. The walk down is very pleasant and you pass the Rose Garden on...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.

The castle is amazing but the hidden surprise is the gardens - well laid out and a surprise round every corner. Everything in the castle is well presented and clean

There is so much more here than a castle. We visited at a weekend and there was a 4 nation medieval tournament. Starting with a visit to the Keep as we arrived before the start of the tournament. A lot of steps but well worth...More

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.
