Home to the Dukes of Norfolk since the 11th Century, it is one of the finest houses in England containing many valuable works of art, sculpture, tapestries, fine furniture, clocks, heraldry and armour all contained within magnificent periodic settings.
The castle has a long and interesting history. The oldest part is the motte which was constructed in 1068, this was immediately followed by the gatehouse built in 1070. Since this time, the castle has had long associations with the realm and the seat of the Dukes of Norfolk for over 850 years.
The castle also provides a venue for the very popular Arundel Festival. Shakespeare plays such as The Tempest and Taming of the Shrew are performed in the grounds with the castle offering a spectacular and moody backdrop.
