Open to visitors for more than 200 years, Arundel Castle continues to attract a steady stream of guests with its compelling events calendar and 40 acres of stunning grounds and gardens, as well as the Castle itself. According to the 2016 Arundel Castle visitor survey, a massive 99% of this year’s visitors said that they would recommend a visit to Arundel Castle to their family and friends. Moreover, two thirds of respondents stated that there was ‘nothing to improve’ on their visitor experience of Arundel Castle. Arundel Castle’s acclaimed gardens proved to be a favorite with visitors again, with a third of people naming the gardens as ‘most enjoyable’ element of their Castle experience.
It is 1474 and England’s new king Edward IV has secured the throne during the wars of the Roses. The scenario is that a French raiding party has seized the castle. The Earl of Arundel is with the king and the English must take the castle back. Although not based on a real siege, visitors will experience aspects of a 15th century siege, with fully armoured knights fighting, replica cannons firing and a tented encampment.
