The historic town of Arundel, West Sussex lies at the foot of the South Downs on the River Arun.
The town is overlooked by the country's second biggest castle.
Within minutes you can be in some of England's most beautiful countryside.
Arundel castle was established at the time of the Norman conquest. It has been home to the Dukes of Norfolk since the 1500s. The castle is extremely well maintained and has been restored through the ages. Whilst it is still a private home, you may visit it between April and October. (please check for exact opening hours).
The narrow streets of the town house many antique shops, craft shops, tea rooms and restaurants.
The Port of Arundel, which was still operating at the beginning of the 20th Century was mentioned in the Norman Doomsday Survey. Amongst the tall ships moored on both sides of the river, smugglers would try to land their contraband of tea, tobacco & brandy at night. The Wey-Arun canal, that linked the Rivers Wey & Arun allowed goods to be shipped on barges to and from London. The canal is presently closed and in many places overgrown, although restoration work is currently underway.
The Arundel Tourist Information Centre in the High Street is well worth a visit if you wish to learn more of Arundel. Audio guides of the town are available to hire
