A Film Friendly Historic Town


Arundel is a historic town in West Sussex, famous for its castle sat atop the hill as well as the many listed buildings that have allowed it to keep its historic charm. This makes it a fantastic location for a period drama or traditional British shoot.

Arundel also has a beautiful boating lake and you’ll  find the River Arun running alongside the town making for many great waterside locations. There is so much on offer in Arundel and you’ll find so many hidden gems from narrow cobbled streets to historic ruins.
