Built astride a hill the Cathedral sits majestically, overlooking the ancient town of Arundel and stands out as an inspiring landmark in West Sussex. Henry, 15th Duke of Norfolk, Earl Marshal, was responsible for the commissioning of the present building in December 1868.

The architect was Joseph Hansom, known principally for invention of the Hansom Cab, who had designed a variety of Catholic churches, convents and other buildings.

Arundel Cathedral supports the annual Arundel Festival by being a venue for the highly popular Arts Trail around the historic town and all year round there are concerts and recitals being performed in the Cathedral.
