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

A great place to visit for both Adults and Children.The boat safari was busy, but is a must, we were fortunate enough to see the voles in their natural habitat, they were totally undisturbed by us visitors. The many hides enable you to get good sightings of various wildlife, we happily sat for some time just watching the Kingfishers. The... More

Pleased to hear that two of our most popular residents (the kingfishers and the water voles) made an appearance during your visit.. Despite our high water levels last winter the water voles continue to have a great year and can be seen all around the site. The kingfishers have been stopping to fish from the perches our team have placed... More

Thank you for supporting the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust by joining us as a member. Great to hear you enjoyed your September visit and took a trip on our Wetlands Discovery Boat Safari that runs everyday, whatever the weather! The wild mute swans on the reserve are very large and can be intimidating - we do have signs asking that... More

Had a great morning at the centre. Saw a water-rail and kingfishers (but not close enough to photograph). They have an interesting collection of captive ducks and geese. Got a lovely view of a water vole. The coots and moorhens are "tame"! Nice views of a wren. Most productive hide was The Scape. A nice soup in the cafe at... More

Nice to hear you enjoyed your morning with us and to hear our kingfishers made an appearance for you. We have cut the reeds in front of the Scrape hide to give visitors better views of the snipe but the water rails are popping up there, too. Thank you for the nice feedback about the Water's Edge cafe's soup -... More

The wetlands centre is always busy with obviously mainly lots of our feathered friends present. You will if you look carefully, find some less obvious fauna here, water voles and lots of different insects too. I would however say, that in summer it is not as full of wildlife as it is in the autumn and winter months with the... More

This centre manages to offer a range of interactive activities without going anywhere near becoming a theme park. The boat ride is a natural resource to get closer to the wading birds and waterfowl and not a tea cups ride at the fair as might have been the temptation. Pathways are good and the layout offers ample option to allow... More
