My birthday trip to Arundel!

+ + April 24, 2016

Living in England is a bit like living on a movie set sometimes. It’s hard to explain, but growing up somewhere completely different will give you that feeling. For example, when it’s dark and raining and the buildings around you are older than your home country. Or when you’re in Central London casually ignoring one of the world’s most famous landmarks. Or when your girlfriend takes you away for your birthday weekend to a picturesque town with an actual fairytale castle.

I loved my visit to Arundel. I love castles and cathedrals, and they have both! Plus the whole town is just adorable and Instagramworthy. And I spent my time exploring it with my favourite person. Also it was SUNNY! Safe to say the trip was a success.

Well, apart from the bit where we prevented a goose from being murdered only to later see a duck be murdered.

Not all fairytales have happy endings.

But that is a story for another day, here are some of the photos I took on my birthday weekend away at the beginning of April!

    This looks incredible. One of my biggest things this year is to try and travel a bit more within the UK – I love the difference between places. This looks absolutely stunning, will add to the list. I think that the UK sometimes gets underrated for it’s locations. I would recommend heading to Warwick or York if you ever get the chance – really lovely. Where I am from (Tunbridge Wells) is nice if you fancy a quiet afternoon on the Pantiles for afternoon tea. Not far from Brighton either 🙂


  • Ohh it looks lovely! I do love a good castle, I have added it on the list for places to visit!

  • Beautiful photos, I must admit I’d never heard of this place until I read this post – thank you!

  • This looks fantastic! I haven’t been to Arundel, so will have to suggest it to my Mum. We both love historical, picturesque places & with summer around the corner what better time to head out on an adventure! Xx

    Beautiful photos! I’ve never been to Arundel, but love picturesque towns (and villages) so will add it to my list of places to visit. That tea shop (?) looks really quaint.

    I live in the Cotswolds and I’d recommend it for a visit, especially Cirencester, Bourton-on-the-Water and Cheltenham.
