A ticket price of £10 for adults and £5 for children (5-16 years) has been launched, with free entry for children under five. The Castle gates will open at 10am Wednesday-Sunday as well as Bank Holiday Mondays.

Castle Manager Stephen Manion said: “We’re so excited to be able to invite visitors back to enjoy our stunning gardens. With the tropical borders in bloom there’s plenty of colour to marvel at, including a flamboyant display of lilies, dahlias and wildflowers throughout the Walled Gardens.”

“The health and safety of everyone remains a priority, therefore there won’t be any access to the Castle buildings and therefore no catering provided. However, Arundel town offers a wealth of scrumptious eateries and we encourage our visitors to explore the Castle’s immediate surroundings after their visit to our gardens.”

Arundel Castle has been certified Good to Go by VisitBritain and is opening in line with Government guidelines.
