In our bid to make the most of the last couple of weeks of my summer break, last Sunday we visited Arundel. Wow. What a gorgeous place! The town itself is so pretty and quaint, littered with antique shops and gorgeous little boutiques. But the star attraction is the castle - both the castle itself (we paid £10 for a 'silver' ticket which got us into the grounds and keep) and the castle grounds are so worth a visit. We took the 131 steps up to the castle keep for amazing views of the town and river Arun, and explored the grounds and incredible gardens - the Collector Earl's Garden is just gorgeous. I never thought I would find gardens so... interesting! Clearly I am now a real grown-up.
