Trip to Arundel in West Sussex, UK

A few weeks ago I took a lovely train trip to Arundel in West Sussex.

On arrival I was greeted by the sight of this amazing Norman castle

I then had a wander down some of the very pretty and historic streets which seemed to be full of art galleries and antiques shops. I found some lovely vintage suitcases there

I explored a few galleries and found some amazing art by Emma Franks

I bought a couple of art cards with her work printed on them.

I then wandered the mile or so down a gorgeous tree-lined lane to the Arundel Wildfowl and Wetlands Centre, and looked at lots of ducks! :)

There was an artist open day happening at the visitor centre and I talked to the Roy Kelf, the maker of these exquisite masking tape bird sculptures

All in all it was a super fantastic day out, I think I am in love with Sussex now, it’s so arty, natural and historic, all the things I love in an area :) I cant wait to explore more of this amazing county. :)

On the way home I had the pleasure of waiting for my train in the most comfortable waiting room I’ve ever seen, it had leather sofas, book shelves full of novels and a box full of DVDs!!!

Thank you Arundel :)
