Arundel is recognised for its castle and variety of historic buildings in a small area; there are around 500 buildings in this conservation area, and many are listed. The beautiful castle is referred to in the Domesday Book in 1086, and has been occupied by the Dukes of Norfolk and their families for over 850 years. The Victorian catholic cathedral was designed by Joseph Hansom, who also designed the Hansom cab.
