Arundel Castle in West Sussex will not open as planned on 01 April and will remain closed until further notice.

Stephen Manion, Castle Manager, stated: “The health of all is a priority. Given the unprecedented situation the country finds itself in we have taken the tough decision not to open as planned at the beginning of April and to remain closed until further notice.

“We understand that visiting the Castle and our events was something that many people were looking forward to, particularly this spring, and we have therefore made this decision with heavy hearts.

“We will continue to monitor the situation and review our plans as necessary and will provide updates via social media and on our website should our plans change.”
