Last month, Mum and I went for a day trip to Arundel Castle. We had such a nice time exploring the old medieval castle and wandering around the beautiful gardens.
The restored medieval castle is based in Arundel in West Sussex. Founded at the end of the 11th century the castle was originally home to the Dukes of Norfolk. I was unable to take photos of inside the castle as photography is not permitted there, but the architecture’s lovely and is worth a look around.
I would definitely recommend visiting the gardens too. There’s lots of different areas to explore such as the rose garden and glass houses. My favourite area was the collector earls garden. This garden is full of pretty flowers, water fountains and a unique floating crown.
