Arundel Castle

Home to the Dukes of Norfolk and their ancestors for over 850 years, Arundel Castle sits overlooking the Arun River in West Sussex. Explore the castle from its surviving Norman keep and medieval Gatehouse through to its major Victorian Neo Gothic rebuild completed in the 1890s.

As you walk from room to room you will see fabulous furniture, paintings from renowned artists like Canaletto and Van Dyck, and treasures and mementos that help tell the castle’s rich story.

Arundel Castle has been the ancestral home of the Howards since the 16th century; the family was in the forefront of English history from the Wars of the Roses through to the English Civil War. Hear about the family connections to Henry VIII, of Lord Howard of Effingham’s role in the defeat of the Spanish Armada and of Philip Howard, who died for his beliefs in the Tower of London in 1595 and later became a Saint.

Finish your visit with a stroll through Arundel Castle’s gardens.
