Arundel Castle

Just under an hour from The Crest, Arundel Castle is a stunning place to visit, rich in history and set in the beautiful picturesque market town of Arundel. The Castle is celebrating its 950th anniversary of the Castle’s initial construction in 2018 and they have a bumper calendar full of events to mark it!
The castle re-opens for 2018 the weekend of  31 March – 02 April, with a Normans & Crusaders event. The Castle grounds will be filled with a 12th century Norman encampment with demonstrations of armour, combat, archery and falconry.

A highlight of the year is the performance of  Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice, 17/18 August – to book you tickets to ensure you don’t miss out Tickets.

Take a look at Britain Magazine‘s stunning photos of the Castle, including a rare tour of the Castle interior! Britain Magazine – Inside Arundel Castle

Arundel Castle

Arundel is well worth a days visit itself with it’s pretty tree lined walks along the river Arun, 1000 years of history within the castle and cathedral, and many shops, art galleries, and little tea shops & cafes to pop into.

It really is a wonderful English town.

 

 

 

 

The Black RabbitOnce your day wandering around the town is finished I would highly recommend completing the day with lunch or dinner at The Black Rabbit Pub situated right on the River Arun and just outside of the main town – we have spent many an afternoon with the kids here and the meals are something more than your average pub grub.

Directions from The Crest

It’s just under an hour from The Crest, and an easy trip that’s well worth carving out a day of your holiday for.
