    I visited on a day trip from London - the castle is well sign posted from the train station and is approx a 10 min walk.

    The highlight was definitely the dry moat tour - the guide was amazing and I honestly wish I could have taken him around the whole castle with me! I got alot of additional knowledge from him which I would have missed out on I feel like otherwise.

    All the guides in the castle were super friendly - once approached and really knowledge and passionate.

    Stayed the night before in the Norfolk Hotel. Found it very easily from the car park by the museum . Would recommend the Boat trip, very informative and our chap was very good.
    Very good for Mobility Scooters, first time my partner had taken his out to a wetlands centre, we had no problems at all.
    My only moan is the food! It’s all very much a much of a muchness… pasties, sausage rolls, jacket potatoes, sandwiches and cake. A bit like the National Trust.

    We hah an experience that we will remember forever. Kevin talked us through the life of the birds and as we were a small group, only three, the personal interaction with the birds was an experience of a life time. Emma communication was exceptional and provided us with a detailed map of how to get to the venue. Very handy for people visiting from overseas. Also she was very forth coming with answering any queries that we had prior to the event. Kevin is very communicative and answered questions we had on the day and has a great repour with his birds. Would happily revisit if in the area again and will recommend this to anyone with an interest in Birds of Prey.

    If you have time on a visit to Arundel this is well worth stopping by. A beautiful structure with a very peaceful atmosphere inside. The best views of the cathedral exterior are actually from the walled garden in the Arundel castle grounds.

    Pleasant walk around the lake took us about an hour but we were walking slowly with 2 small dogs. Unfortunately not many dog waste bins hence some people didn’t bother picking theirs up hence 4 stars not 5, also nowhere to sit along the route only at the cafe at the end. Lovely views of the lake and surrounding English countryside. Plenty of free parking on the road from central Arundel.

    We went for a 3 hour family session, and drank coffee while our family assembled. Arundel lido is heated, 25m long with a safe area for kids separated from the main pool. The castle looks wonderful. There is a huge paddling pool, grassy areas, loungers and a playground. It wasn’t crowded. It was like being on holiday. The staff are super friendly and helpful. You wouldn’t go for a long swim, but family water fun was great. We’ll go again.

    Small but informative restaurant with toilets next door and a cafe inside. The exhibits were good. Basically most of the exhibits are in one very large room. The exhibits explain the history of the area from cave man times onwards. The history of the castle is fascinating. Just beware when they close up. We nearly got locked in!!!!

    What a story this church has. Both Anglican and Roman Catholic. You won’t find that anywhere else. The history on how this became is documented within. You can stand in the Anglican part and look through a glass petition to the catholic side. The church itself dates back to 1380 and is worth a bit of time in you are visiting Arundel.

    Time was when cattle would be bought and sold in Arundel’s market square. Nowadays or at least every Saturday more likely to be sold are the products of animals bought sold and butchered elsewhere such as pork pies and sausage rolls in addition to steaks and lamb cutlets. But there’s much more besides including flowers plants and even Chichester made sloe gin. But why shut at 1pm particularly on a festival day. Could understand it if the square was to be used for bands and even dancing but nonesuch materialised.

    Last here five years or so ago when everything was grey. Today virtually everything was blue including geometric prints, ceramics and paintings. A little more lively but the artwork felt a bit functional and felt as if it might serve better as carpet design or wallpaper.

    Nice venue hidden away by Arundel train station. Two lakes to choose from, both being ribbon/snake lakes which are friendly to pole and rod anglers alike. The first lake is a mixed stock lake with carp up to about 20-25lb and a good head of roach, bream and crucians. The odd decent perch can be had too.

    The second lake is a 2 minute walk and is more of a commercial match lake stocked with lots of smaller carp. This is a sweetcorn and meat lake only.

    Finding opening times online was challenging, but for clarity - it opens at 08:00 and closes at 17:00. One rod is a tenner and two rods a little more - can't remember how much as opted to fish on the pole.
