    Steep Hill Alert!
    The cathedral is up a steep hill from the coach park. I went there on the day before Corpus Christi and the aisle was carpeted with flowers for the Bishop to walk over the next day. The RC cathedral is fairly modern but interesting.

    Breathtaking!
    WOW. This Cathedral really is a must if you find yourself in the town of Arundel. Free entry and loads on offer, the general feeling one is expected to feel is utter calmness as they enter this Cathedral with amazing traditional decor. Definitely a must!

    Small, but well worth visiting.
    This cathedral is just about the smallest I have visited, but it is still well worth looking around. I think I arrived not too long after a Sunday service, as I could hear a lot of chattering going on. This was perhaps just as well as time was at a premium that particular day. Being so small, it did not take anywhere near as long to wander around as much larger cathedrals, but I still enjoyed my time wandering around.

What a lovely, peaceful way to immerse yourself into Catholic culture. Information galore, opportunities to donate but free entry and beautiful architecture. Very, very quaint and somewhere you could spend hours.

From a mile away it looks like the kind of huge cathedral you would find while cruising down the Loire; up close you realise how small it is. It's quite impressive inside and should not be missed.

The cathedral of the Catholic diocese of Arundel and Brighton was on the 2023 feastday of Corpus Christi alive with everything but devotion to the The Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar.
Ladies presiding over stalls, visitors walking aimlessly about and people greeting each other warmly before the reordered sanctuary a few metres from that Altar. Fortunately the monstrance on that altar did not contain a Host. Although I suspect that might not have made much difference to the loud chatter filling the building.
Consequently ZERO for atmosphere. Bishop Moth might consider a return to the days when there was a quiet and reverential atmosphere in Catholic buildings not that of an episode of the Antiques Roadshow.

Lovely cathedral whose exterior is in such really good condition and this is because its a "young" cathedral - only 150 years old ! :) :)

Yet it is still a great cathedral with a superb interior.

A lovely cathedral. A bit smoky when we walked in but I was fascinated by the architecture and I love that it’s built on the top of a hill and can be seen from a way away. There is a lovely gift shop inside and I bought some souvenirs as a memento of my trip here. Very glad I got the opportunity to visit.

Booked to stay in Arundel for other reasons then realised it coincided with the castles tulip festival.
Booked tickets for gardens, castle and bedrooms @ £27 each and we were not disappointed.
Spent 2 hours in the gardens, the displays of tulips were spectacular plenty of places to sit dotted around to enjoy the views and have a tea or coffee purchased from the garden cafe.
The walk inside the castle and rooms was also very interesting, knowledgeable guides in each room happy to answer any questions.
