Arundel and its Castle - a West Sussex Gem
Of particular interest in the castle grounds is the Collector Earl's Garden This incredible garden is decorated with colossal green oak structures surrounded by flowerbeds bursting with colourful blooms. It was established as a memorial to the fourteenth Earl of Arundel who was a friend of the famous architect Inigo Jones and a keen collector of art. The oak structures have been created from drawings by Inigo including Oberon’s Palace, the centrepiece. This oak building features a decorative arch over the doorway, four hanging turrets and a higher dome covered in hand scalloped cedar shingles that looked as though they have been covered with gold.
