Welcome to Arundel Castle Cricket Club

Arundel Castle Cricket Ground is a 3.5-acre amphitheatre built in 1895 by the 15th Duke of Norfolk and is renowned as one of the most beautiful cricket grounds in the world. Set amidst the Sussex Downs and with stunning views over the Arun valley, it is overlooked by Arundel Castle, seat of the Dukes of Norfolk for over 850 years.

International and County Festival cricket have made up a programme of prestigious matches ever since the ground was created in 1895.

From Bradman to Warne, Marshall to Richards, Cowdrey to Botham, all the most well-known names in cricket have made their mark on the ground.

Members of the Club enjoy free entry to all matches along with other membership benefits. We also offer members the opportunity to attend lunches and cricketing talks throughout the year. Non Members are equally welcome to visit on match days where an entrance fee will be applied.

In 2022 we celebrated 125 years of cricket being played at Arundel Castle.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.
