Arundel Castle

Arundel Castle’s open season will end on November 3 but there are still a few weeks remaining for visitors to experience the splendour of the stately home and gardens this year.

The extensive walled gardens are an unmissable attraction at this time of year.

Following the final historical event of the season, Norman Knights at the Castle on October 30 and 31, the castle will shut its gates for the winter to allow for essential maintenance and restoration work.

It will reopen to visitors on April 1, 2020, with a refreshed calendar of family-friendly events.

Arundel Castle is open from 10am until 5pm, Tuesday to Sunday until November 3. Tickets are available at the gate.
