The beautiful, medieval Arundel Castle is set in West Sussex & was founded by Roger de Montgomery on Christmas Day 1067. It was damaged in the English Civil War but was respectfully restored in the 18th & 19th centuries. Consequently, it has been open to visitors seasonally for nearly 200 years & is considered to be one of the great treasure houses of England,
ARUNDEL CASTLE was built at the end of the 11th century by Roger de Montgomery, Earl of Arundel. From this time onwards it has been used as home to various families before becoming the principal seat of the Duke of Norfolk. Many original features can be seen: the crenellated Norman keep, gatehouse & tower. In the 1870's the house was renovated in the gothic style and is a finest example. The library is said to have one of the finest Regency interiors in the world.
