This is a magnificent castle situated on a hill overlooking the river Arun. Built at the end of the 11th century, it has been, and still is, the residence of the Dukes of Norfolk for over 700 years. You may tour much of the grounds and interior here.
The Black Swan offered a wonderful lunch by the River Arun in this beautiful village. Walking into the village, we stopped in a shop which sold genuine Roman coins. These coins are still being found by hobbyists using metal detectors.
After touring Arundel I took a photo as we walked away. The castle, gave me the impression of a formidable fortress and, remembering the outstanding armoury they had inside, decided to make it appear to really loom over you and have it look as it may to an invading force.
