Visiting Arundel is like taking a step into our historical past where the magnificence of the castle, dominating the town and the River Arun, and Arundel Cathedral bring history alive. The 11th century Arundel Castle has been the home of the Dukes of Norfolk since the 1500's and provides a stunning backdrop to the town. It houses a great many fascinating items including personal possessions of Mary Queen of Scots. Imposing Arundel Cathedral is a delight to visit at any time but even more so when, 60 days after Easter, the Corpus Christi Carpet of Flowers is laid in the aisle. This spectacular tableau is created annually by parishioners.
