Arundel – Castle and Cathedral

Arundel Castle was once a motte-and-bailey castle, the keep built first from timber (in 1068) and was later rebuilt from stone by King Henry II. The castle has been the seat of the Dukes of Norfolk for about 900 years.

The Tulip Festival and other flower shows of Arundel Castle, West Sussex attract thousands of visitors every year.

The Catholic Cathedral of Arundel was designed by Joseph Hansom, who also designed the first taxi. It was designated a cathedral in 1965, before that it was simply called The Church of Our Lady and Philip St Neri (whose story was made popular in the film “State Buoni se Potete”).
