Arundel Castle & Grounds :: TQ0107
The seat of The Dukes of Norfolk and set in 40 acres of sweeping grounds and gardens, Arundel Castle has been open to visitors seasonally for nearly 200 years.

It was founded by Roger de Montgomery on Christmas Day 1067. Roger became the first to hold the earldom of Arundel by the graces of William the Conqueror. The castle was damaged in the English Civil War and then restored in the 18th and 19th centuries. It is a grade 1 listed building LinkExternal link

River Arun
The Arun rises 120 metres above sea level at its source in St Leonard's Forest near Horsham. It then runs 25 miles before reaching the sea at Littlehampton.
It's the second fastest flowing river in the country with a 'flashy' nature responsive to heavy rainfall.
The river is tidal as far inland as Pallingham Quay, 18.25 miles upstream from Littlehampton.
