Arundel Castle with Elizabeth and Andrew

External view of the Barbican and the West Wing
This year Elizabeth brought Andrew from America for a visit.
We drove down to Arundel Castle on the South coast.
Arundel is the seat of the Duke of Norfolk, the Earl Marshal of England.

The castle is still used as a home and the bedrooms, mostly on the first floor, are open to the public only on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays because they are used for weekend parties.

Looking up to the Keep The oldest part of the castle is the Keep, looming high on the mound  above the Barbican in this picture.  When you climb to the top, you have great views over Arundel and into the inner court of the castle.
