Mini guide to Arundel

     

Located south of London in West Sussex at the foot of the South Downs, the historic town of Arundel is situated amid beautiful countryside and boasts the UK's second biggest castle. This traditional port town has several interesting sights besides the outstanding castle; these include the nature reserve and cathedral.

Impressive Arundel Castle can be seen from miles around and it is surrounded by huge and meticulously maintained grounds. The castle was built in the 11th century, with many additions in the 19th century. Nowadays, it serves as home to the Duke of Norfolk and can be visited between April and October.

The town itself is set on a hill below the castle and its narrow streets, full of antique shops, craft shops, cafés and tea rooms, are easy to get around on foot. The Arundel Tourist Information Centre has excellent information on the town, while the nearby 19th century Roman Catholic cathedral is another impressive highlight.

Other noteworthy sights in Arundel include the toy museum and the popular Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust, which lies along the banks of the River Arun and is a haven for migrating birds. The nature reserve is open all year round and there are alternative activities available for children.

Farther afield, there are numerous attractive villages in the area, such as Amberley, with its Sussex thatched cottages, Wild Brooks nature reserve and Hardham, with its 11th century St Botolph's Church. Nearby Bognor Regis is known for its long beach and Butlin's holiday camp, while Chichester and Portsmouth lie to the west.

Arundel lies on the main A27 and is straightforward to get to from London via the M23 motorway and the A29. Two trains per hour run to Arundel from London's Victoria station via Gatwick International Airport and National Express buses also run regular services from the capital. Gatwick Airport is conveniently close to Arundel, with a choice of trains and buses for transfers.
