Set in the beautiful Sussex countryside with views of Arundel castle the wetlands offer a very peaceful and interesting day out. The wetlands are home to huge variety of ducks, swans and geese as well as other wildlife. The walks are all on the flat and there are a number of hides to view and photograph the ducks in their...

We visited the wetland centre as a day out on our holiday to Bognor Regis. This definitely the best day of the holiday. Had a fab time walking through the different sections of the wetland. Taking lots of pictures. Saw loads of baby ducks and geese. Beautiful place to visit on a sunny day Lovely picnic area and cafe also... More

We have been to the WWT head office at Slimbridge before, and this is certainly not a poor relation. We did not visit at the best time of year for the colours of the birds (we will be back in the spring) but we really enjoyed what we saw. The staff were very helpful and pleasant, and the boat ride... More

We went on a very lovely summer afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful joy of the facilities. The fascinating range of birds to watch, the gentle breeze sighing through the reed beds, the informative posts and signs that helped with identification, the respectful behaviour of all visitors who seemed to appreciate that this was an active opportunity to be close...

What a lovely place to visit. Grounds are well maintained, there is a boat safari which lasts 20 minutes and you get a chance to see fish, various birds of prey, ducks and lovely flowers. There is a suggested donation of £1.00 for try safari, the guide is very good and you can't even hear the engine. There's plenty to... More

A great day out for the family or for a nice weekend walk. Loads of birds to see (unsurprisingly!). But what was unexpected was a fab boat ride hunting for water voles and some great outdoor play area's. Food is decent quality. Make sure to book tickets in advance to avoid queues and take advantage of online discount codes.

If birding is your game then the wetland centre is the place you will want to be whilst in Arundel.. Stunning walk from Arundel itself to the Wetlands and you are greeted with many varieties of birds from very large to very small. Fully recommend a visit here!

We visited on a very wet afternoon but were made to feel welcome and the kids loved it. Luckily the rain stopped for the boat ride and we did get to see a water vole which was awesome. Wonderful to hear the knowledgeable staff talk about the wildlife and inspire the kids. Pond dipping and looking at the bugs under... More

Arundel Wetlands Centre is a wonderful day out for all the family. Safe pathways send you round clearly signposted routes and there is a lot of information on the birds you can see. There are also interactive boards around the site that the children can operate. You can while away many hours here. There are benches dotted about to sit... More

This made it a very good deal as entry is over £10 normally and we are only mildly interested in wildlife. It was our first visit without either children or elderly family so we completed our visit faster than anticipated. It was a Monday, and there were relatively few visitors. Various other places are shut on Mondays in Arundel (castle,... More
