Why Move to Arundel
According to The Argus in 2021, Arundel was the best small town in the UK. Offering a number of key strengths, Arundel certainly sits within an attractive location. It is as picture postcard perfect as it gets.
The area is surrounded by plenty of open natural spaces such as the South Downs and the lazy River Arun winds its way through the town. The Neo-Gothic cathedral and buzzing high street offer a place to explore its many antique shops and unusual independents. However, the star of the show will always be Arundel’s impressive medieval castle.
The ancestral home of the Duke of Norfolk, its beautiful staterooms and carefully tended grounds have made it a top tourist attraction for many years. Not a particularly large town with an approximate population of between 3500-4000, what Arundel lacks in size it more than makes up for in all other ways.
It is also surprisingly well connected, not just to other towns and villages in the region, but to London. 62 miles away, the capital is just under an hour and a half by train from Victoria and even closer from Clapham. Well worth the commute if your home is a town as beautiful as Arundel.
The close-knit community are always organising some kind of festival or celebration.
One of the most popular is the gloriously atmospheric Christmas gathering. The town is all lit up and streets are full of stalls selling roasted chestnuts, mulled wine, and hog roasts.
There is a surprisingly vibrant artistic side to Arundel, with many artists and sculptors living or working in the town. Arundel is one of those rare places where you can truly escape the anxieties of modern life. But, remain connected enough to be able to immerse yourself in more superficial activities when you are in the mood.
Schools & Education
A move to a new area constitutes a range of changes to all concerned. Not least to those who are moving with children and are concerned about schools in the area and how well they may perform.
West Sussex County Council is responsible for state education provision in Arundel.
There is a comprehensive education system in place, with a mix of county-maintained secondary schools and academies to choose from.
Within three miles of the town, there are 9 state schools available and two independents with more available further out of town.
For a full list of local schools visit the West Sussex Council website below:
Arundel C of E schools for 5-11 years, is a “good” school reports Ofsted. Its latest inspection found that the school continues to be good with many outstanding features.
There are plenty of high-performing FE colleges well within commutable distance. The closest three are West Sussex Alternative Provision College (WSAPC), Slindon College and Northbrook College.
Northbrook is a popular college, the largest provider of FE for the creative and cultural industries in West Sussex. It is also a significant provider of higher education.
The College, additionally, has contracts for apprenticeship training and adult and community learning and provides courses in most work-related areas as well as those for personal development.
Things to do in Arundel
Although Arundel Castle remains the top attraction, however, the town manages to cover pretty much all tastes as far as entertainment goes. From contemporary galleries and outdoor pursuits, all are very well catered for. Of course, you must begin your exploration of the town at the castle.
Sitting high on a hill with commanding views of the whole region. Home to the Dukes of Norfolk and their ancestors for almost 1000 years, it is a superb place to visit for all ages. Not only does Arundel have a fantastic castle it also has its own cathedral.
It is the second most dominant feature on Arundel’s skyline. The Roman Catholic Cathedral Church of Our Lady and St Philip Howard was constructed in late 1869 in French Gothic style and was opened on 1 July 1873. A working cathedral it is a wonderfully atmospheric place to visit.
Arundel Wildfowl & Wetlands Centre is a 60 acres reserve situated at the foot of the Offham Hangar, part of the Arun valley. Home to all sorts of waterfowl. A place where you can really get close to nature.
If you enjoy playing sports and being an active community member, Arundel offers plenty of opportunities to join a host of clubs; fishing, cricket, football, and boating to name a few.
Dedicated to the industrial heritage of Southeast England, Amberly Museum offers 36 acres to explore, indoors and outdoors, there’s plenty to do for a family day out.
Amberley showcases trains, old vintage busses, all sorts of interesting and interactive displays, a café and a gift shop.
Buying a home in the town could prove to be a challenge. Not only is there a shortage of affordable housing, but homes for sale generally are scarce. Zoopla is advertising just 26 homes for sale.
Generally, those who relocate to Arundel tend to stay, moving up or down the local property ladder rather than looking for a home elsewhere.
The centre is full of period properties, and these are always in high demand.
Some superb examples of Georgian and Victorian housing are located along Maltravers Street at the top of the hill, home to some of Arundel’s grandest houses.
Non-retirement prices are high and average at £688,579 for a detached home and £407,613 for a semi-detached property.
The average cost for a property is far over the National average currently standing at£476,684.
