Arundel Castle

Arundel, set on a hill top above the river Arun, is dominated by its Norman castle and Gothic cathedral. Arundel Castle though originally built in the 11th century, suffered badly during the English civil war, so that what you see today was constructed during the 18th and 19th centuries. However, within the walls of the castle there is almost 1000 years of history, including the impressive remains of the keep, suits of armour and beautiful paintings. The 19th century cathedral is a fine example of Gothic architecture.
