Sussex Reports

Arundel, Sussex

Review of Arundel by Pete Butler on March 5th, 2006
To walk into the vast Drawing Room that overlooks the River Arun, at Arundel Castle, is quite an experience, as this was originally Henry the Second's Great Hall. The beautiful church-like Dining Room, next to this, was his Chapel. The impressive Medieval [9ft thick] curtain wall practically surrounds the entire Castle, and is a special survival - not to mention its wonderful Medieval earthworks, Keep of 1140, Gatehouse of 1070, Barbican of 1200, Regency Library [formed from the original Elizabethan Long Gallery, etc. Quite easily one of the finest castle's to be found anywhere.
