Castle in the Air

Arundel and the Arun Valley


Curators View

This epic walk is easily accessible by train from Amberley Station and there is also good parking. Picking up the Monarch’s Way, the lungs get a decent work out shortly after entering the Arundel Estate. There are wonderful views to the South Downs before a short detour gives you a first glimpse of the magical Arundel Castle. Within a couple of hours of setting off, you have arrived in Arundel, a town well worth a linger. Indeed, if you want time to explore the Castle and the shops, why not stay the night at the Norfolk Arms and make use of the exclusive discount available to Vespucci Adventurers? Either way, enjoy a coffee at the Motte & Bailey on the High Street before heading on and across the Arun. The George at Burpham is a great place for a pint or a bite to eat. Alternatively, enjoy your picnic overlooking the Arun Valley with Arundel Castle silhouetted on the skyline. Within an hour of the George, you are back at the station and completely reinvigorated after a great days walking.
