Arundel Castle

The award-winning gardens lie within the Castle walls.

Discover the tranquil White Garden near the 14th century Fitzalan Chapel. Filled with white flowering plants including alliums, roses and cosmos.

Explore the Collector Earl’s Garden. Designed by Isabel and Julian Bannerman in 2008, the garden takes its name from the Duke’s 17th-century ancestor, Thomas Howard, 14th Earl of Arundel who was an avid art collector. In the Spring, a maze of Narcissus Thalia lies beneath Oberon’s Palace.

Nearby is the Stumpery. Not hidden away in a backwater, the Stumpery faces south and is filled with spring flowering plants including fritillaria, hellebores, daffodils, euphorbia and tulips.

The Kitchen Garden is brimming with fruit and veg.

Amazing Tulip Festival in the Spring – check the website for dates.

Check out the Water Garden which has recently been restored.
