ARUNDEL CATHEDRAL

Sussex

Arundel Cathedral, Sussex

Full dedication: Cathedral Church of St. Philip Neri
Became a Cathedral in 1965

Unusually for one of England's Catholic Cathedrals, Arundel really looks the part, it could almost be a medieval visage standing opposite the magnificent Castle as it does and dominating the beautiful little town of Arundel.

This is deceptive as the Cathedral only dates back to the 1870s.  Much of the work was financed by the Dukes of Norfolk, whose seat is Arundel Castle. They are amongst Britain's most prominent Catholic families, not to mention one of the richest, so J.A. Hansom, the architect, was given full reign to create one of the most impressive Cathedrals of the 'modern' age.
