A tourism hot spot, Arundel is charming, stylish and full of history and is probably most famous for two stunning landmarks - Arundel Castle and Arundel Cathedral.

A Furniturebox spokesperson said: “Arundel is the most stylish place to live in Sussex and fourth only to Grassington on the national list of the 60 most stylish places in the UK.

“All 60 places on the list would have been worthy winners and show why the UK is such a stylish country, loved by artists, film-makers and tourists from all over the world.

“What is interesting is how influential Instagram has become in boosting tourism in many of our top 60, particularly around Sussex. It is a massive help for visitor numbers, too, if a popular film or TV show uses a town or village as a location.

“Most of the locations in the top 60 are not the most affluent or fashionable in their localities. It shows that style can be achieved whatever your budget - and that is very true of furniture.”
