The entrance to Amberly Castle
There is Arundel which towers over a quaint town filled with antique shops and interesting little shops and is the obvious tourist stop off but not far from there is Amberley Castle, nestled in the little village of Amberley. Amberly Castle is my favourite, only because its got a cosy feel and you can walk around the gardens and feel how it might have been to live there once upon a time. It's a hotel and the other week I visited for afternoon tea. It was a delightfully sunny warm day and the white doves and peacocks were out in force, a truly magical place.
