First class day out. Fun educational and really pleasant place to spend a day. The electric boat safari was excellent. This is not Disney land but our 8,11,13 year olds all had a great day and want to go back.

Where would we be without somewhere to recharge our batteries, like the WWT Arundel Wetland Centre. We try to come here at least once a year, and spend time just looking and listening to wildlife, and taking a very leisurely stroll through the reserve. We take all day and have a meal or snack in the cafe. There is a... More

Lovely gentle day out. Lots to see if you like birds (obviously) but enough space still for children with short attention spans. Went on the reed bed boat and saw a vole which was a first for me.

Beautiful setting and wide range of wildfowl. Some of the "twitchers" aren't very tolerant of young children and this can spoil it, although the grandkids enjoyed themselves. The centre staff are more friendly.

Peaceful place to visit, flat walks around site, plenty of seats to rest on way, including picnic area with fence to stop you loosing lunch to geese/ducks.

We visited here for the first time and it was brilliant. It was clean, spacious and well managed. My children are 11 and 9 and weren't bored at all. The play areas were just enough to break up the walking. The boat ride was good and guide was well informed. Every member of staff we met, polite and informative. We... More

We visited on a lovely summers day. The staff at the ticket office were very friendly and informative. We spent a lovely few hours wandering around the centre. The Ducks were all very relaxed and it was great to watch people feed them. The boat ride was very nice, although we didn't see any wildlife during our ride. We were... More

I have been a member of the Wetlands for over four years but will probably now be cancelling my membership. I have enjoyed many trips here over the years with my 2 young children and the best part has been feeding the ducks on the way round. Today we found that not only can you no longer get bags of...

We were a bit nervous about this, as we have young children and they need occupying. They loved it. From watching the various ducks to the pond dipping for insects and the craft tie, they loved it. It is also great that you have to pass the castle to get there, which means they get to see it without paying!... More

Came here with 2 under 8's and a 15year old and wasn't disappointed as there is lots to do and see. Fed the ducks, walked all around and went pond dipping and found lots of mini beasts - much to the delight of my 6 yr old nephew!! Also went on the boat trip and saw a water vole!! Absolutely...
