We have visited several of the wetland centres around the country and this is our favourite. Boat trip through the reed beds is magical, especially seeing water voles. The site is small enough to be able to visit it all in one day, without rushing, but with lots to see.

Enjoyed the visit here so much we joined WWT as members. This is a superb oasis of ducks and birds and wild life and floar well presented. During the silent electric boat ride we saw water voles and peregrine falcon and watched swallows returning to the nest to feed their young

Lovely place. My family are members so we can drop in and out for a spare hour whenever we have one without paying. Although Conservation of Water Birds is the main aim, the Water Voles and the boat trip round the reed beds are the Highlight. The Boat 'Captains' are very good. I had a young Lady from Northumberland as... More

The staff here are extremely helpful and informative. We enjoyed the walk around and the boat trip. We are not bird watchers but there were lots there getting excited about what they were seeing, which got us intrigued and excited too. Lovely afternoon out.

Myself and my girlfriend are members here and love to spend a Sunday wondering around looking at the birds and of course the setting is beautiful and as the seasons change so do the birds on offer. There is also an excellent shop and restaurant on site and the facilities are always clean and well maintained. In addition disabled access... More

The WWT is an excellent place to visit when in Arundel. Well laid out and run. The electric boat ride is well worth a ride. Depending on what time of year there is no guarantee what wild life you will see but always something of interest.

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
