Arundel Tips

Offham near Arundel - A really pretty view although can get busy in summer is the black Rabbit Pub, outside the view of the river and the castle is delightful, boat trips can be taken from here in the summer - Sharon

Ford (near Arundel) - An absolutely huge market is held here every Sunday, or if you want car Boot then they are held on the old Airfield on Thursdays and Saturdays, if driving take the exit on A27 saying Ford and Climping carry on the road until you see the aeroplane on a pole…… there are loads of things to choose from. and it‘s well worth the visit. - Elias

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.- Pete Butler
