We begin with the Greenyer family entering the grounds of Arundel Castle, making their way along the ramparts before attempting to climb some steps carrying a pram with a small child inside. After some views of the castle's southside we cross a drawbridge into the barbican. Continuing up more steps to the castle's Norman keep, the family enjoy great views of the town and its prominent church from the battlements. A child feeds ducks and swans before the film ends.
