No trip to West Sussex is complete without visiting the magnificent Arundel Castle. Set high on a hill in West Sussex, this great Castle commands the landscape with magnificent views across the South Downs and the River Arun. Built at the end of the 11th century by Roger de Montgomery, Earl of Arundel, the castle has seen sieges, battles and even a visit from Queen Victoria. Today, you can explore the extensive grounds and perfectly-kept gardens – the Stumpery Garden is a unique, magical spot with a woodland garden feel. For art lovers there is also a dazzling collection of artwork including pieces by Van Dyck, Gainsborough and Canaletto. Plus, there are lots of events that run all year round.
