A market town rich in history and culture, straddling the river Arun, between the South Downs and the English Channel waiting to be discovered.
Arundel is a small hilltop town with a skyline dominated by the Castle. High on a hill, at the head of the Arun gap stand the Norman Castle and Gothic Cathedral. Surrounded by ancient woodland, Arundel’s skyline is impressive from whatever direction you approach the town.
There is a rich variety of thriving, independent retailers, all giving a highly individual welcome. The town has become famous not only for its antique shops but also for its wide range of other contemporary shops, restaurants and galleries.
There are numerous things to do locally: Arundel Wetlands Centre, Arundel Castle, Arundel Museum, Amberley Working museum, Denamns Gardens and Fontwell racecourse all being close at hand.
At the end of August this wonderful historic town is alive with art, sculpture, music, theatre, street entertainments and events for all.
