Amazing day out for all the family to see nature up close in the Wetlands of Arundel. There is the opportunity for a boat ride but this is very popular with visitors. Visitors also have the chance to purchase bird food to feed the ducks and other birds as they walk round the wetlands centre. This is a place for... More

I took my 4 year old granddaughter on a day out to see the ducks and some birds and to enjoy some indoor activities arranged by the centre for the children. As I am not an avid bird-watcher or photographer, it would be unfair to comment negatively, I would however say that my granddaughter loved the discovery boat ride and... More

This is so brilliantly managed. I've never seen such a wide range of beautiful wetland birds in one place. There are enclosures and hides which make viewing the birds an absolute thrill - you can get really close. Lovely cafe too - sit there for a while and you may see a kingfisher...as we did!

Visited late January weekday. As members it's free to get in so is great value! Very quiet around the centre but sufficient bird life to make it interesting. Electric boat ride was as good as ever and managed to see a kingfisher fairly close by for about 2 mins before it departed. Also saw water voles in the reed beds... More

For years I bypassed this WWT in favour of walking round Swanbourne Lake opposite (and free!) Then a friend invited myself and my husband to visit with them and I though why the heck not once won't hurt me! Well I am now a member and visit at least once a month. The cafe is lovely and priced as you... More

Plenty of parking spaces. A good electric boat that takes you around the wetlands part of the centre. Lots of different birds for you to see. Went to see the kingfishers, but unfortunately wasn't lucky enough this time. There are lots of different ducks and swans. You can buy food at the entrance to feed the ducks. There is a... More

Make sue you take warm clothing and gloves. our group all ended up with interesting photos apart from me - I forgot to charge my battery before we came!... More

We discovered this place by accident visiting Arundel and have returned many times. On the first visit, on leaving, we upgraded to season tickets which are exceptionally good value for money. I often take my three year old but that does mean not spending too long in any one area. But that's fine as there's a lot of places to... More

I never thought there were so many different types of ducks before I came here. I loved all of them and the Iceland enclosure was spectacular. There is plenty of space for all the ducks and they all seem very happy and they're not afraid of coming close enough for a photo. There were also lots of geese, Greylag and... More
