Thankfully when we took our grandchildren the weather was very kind to us. The facilities are excellent and our grandchildren were kept entertained for many hours. The highlight for them was the boat trip where they saw water voles but they enjoyed all the other activities including pond dipping.

10 min walk from the city. It has a great collection of wildfowl, its clean, the staff is really helpful and friendly! It offers a nice and relaxing boat ride. They also give lots of info about the species and they have many conservation programs going on. A lovely day in nature!

As a retired couple and keen on bird watching this was disappointing. There were lots of noisy families visiting so nothing was seen from the bird hides. We had a nice walk around, but it was expensive for a couple of hours. The highlight for me was seeing a water vole which we hadn't seen for twenty odd years

Love this place! Changes with the seasons are fascinating and the chance of seeing a water vole is exciting. My 2 year old niece loves feeding the ducks and other water birds, actually learning to walk in the centre. Gift shop and cafe are well situated and varied. A pleasant day out for the old and young. We visit the... More

We used our Airmiles (Avios) points for membership and really pleased we did. Day visits can be expensive (very expensive café) but there's lots to do. As well as the usual walk around to see the ducks and geese etc, usually on Sundays there's craft activities for the kids and a "guide in the hide". Pond dipping, couple of play... More

First time visitor and well impressed by size of site, accessibility for wheelchair users to the hides, boardwalks. Good value for a family day out as kids have their own play area, plus many activities during school hols. Admission price includes boat safari which lasts approx 20 mins and photo opportunity for spotting wild life up close. Near by is... More

Although not a serious bird watcher I thoroughly enjoyed our morning at the WWT. With the Arundel floodplain on one side of WWT and thickly wooded hills on the other side it made for a most attractive landscape. The centre covers over 60 acres and whilst the car park seemed fairly full once inside the Wetlands it didn't seem in... More

The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The cafe is clean and tidy, and most food is cooked to order. If you live near to one of the centres annual membership is extremely good value.

Parked along the road before entering wetland centre but found a large car park just inside entrance. Clean, modern building housing ticket sales, gift shop, toilets and café. Can purchase seed to feed ducks. Using the map we headed straight for the boat ride. A lovely tranquil trip. The guide was very informative. Plenty of ducks, geese, moor hens and... More

Very well laid out, organized and maintained, the WWT at Arundel is peaceful and wonderful for families. The boat ride was peaceful and included a glimpse of a water vole. Those wanting an introduction to bird and wildlife watching it's a must. Serious bird watchers wanting sightings other than rarer semi-tame species, then look elsewhere.
