Arundel Castle ~ 18th July


The weather was perfect for our trip down to Sussex to meet up with Red Hat friends at Arundel Castle. We met in Belinda's restaurant situated in a charming 16th century building for morning coffee and then did a good tour of the Farmers Market that is held once a month. We were all ready for lunch in the castle restaurant and then off to look around the gardens. There is a new garden at the castle and it is truly magnificent from the moment you step through the castle wall. It takes your breath away as it is just not what you are expecting. It is worth a visit if you are ever in the area. After the gardens we went back into the castle for tea and coffee and then one of our friends, Judy, took us on a guided tour of Arundel. This guided tour is usually done by the town crier but she was away for the day but we had access to her notes. It was extremely interesting and we all learnt a great deal about Arundel.
