There are a whole host of activities to enjoy in Arundel. There is something for everyone from ghost tours to museums and river cruises. With so much history condensed into such a modest sized town it is both an interesting and educational place to visit. Arundel also has an excellent farmers market, held on the 3rd Saturday of each month. Enjoy the local fare and wander around the historic town and shops.
Make the most of the river - accessed by a proposed slipway and pontoon and cruise towards the Black Rabbit pub or further north to Amberley. Alternatively visit and use the rowing boats on Swanbourne Lake in Arundel Park. Arundel is also home to the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust,where there are thousands of ducks, geese and swans including rare and migratory birds.
