Visit Arundel for Annual Events
There's always something going on in Arundel, and if you visit in late May - early June, you may be lucky enough to witness The Feast of Corpus Christi and the Carpet of Flowers. A procession starts at the cathedral and winds its way through the streets, carrying the Blessed Sacrament to the castle quadrangle. Come to Arundel in August and you'll be just in time for the annual Arundel Festival, an arts festival with live music, street performers and stalls - a great day out for the whole family. Stay at a family-run guesthouse and you'll find the owners will be more than happy to fill you in on what events are taking place during your visit.
