Arundel Castle


Arundel is one of the most beautiful grounds in the country, set near the castle, surrounded by trees with an large gap on one side offering glorious views over the Weald. Built in 1894-95 by the 15th Duke of Norfolk, successive Dukes' sides played there until in 1975 Lavinia, the Duchess, decided to open the venue up as a tribute to her cricket-loving husband and the Friends of Arundel Castle was formed. Since then, many high-profile games featuring touring sides have been played in a relaxed atmosphere as well as numerous charity and club matches. In 1989 an indoor school was built at the back of the pavilion and the following year Sussex played their first Championship match there. The record attendance is 6000 who watched the Duke's XI take on the touring Australians.
