Arundel Wetland Centre is home to a wonderful collection of over 50 species of wildfowl from around the world in natural settings, on display 364 days a year so there is always something to see. This gorgeous nature reserve has free boat rides and an amazing reedbed boardwalk. The 8 wildlife hides bring you close to Sussex wildlife plus there is a family oriented Discovery Hide which hosts events in wet weather.
The centre runs a full schedule of family events in holidays and on weekends including spring's Great Duck Hunt for rubber duckies, the Wildlife Ranger summer program of outdoor discovery and the creepy Yuk Show in October. The Pond dipping station is open Apr- Oct manned by the excellent Learning Team with a video-scope to magnify the creatures you find! Added to this are two adventure playgrounds, the Water's Edge Cafe serving hot meals from 12-2pm and a gift shop with unique take-home treats.
Arundel Wetland Centre is fully accessible with buggy and wheelchair friendly pathways, comfortable hides and disabled and parent & baby facilities. Spot water voles from the boat safari, hand feed rare geese at World Wetlands and stroll gentle pathways to quiet spots to watch Sussex wildlife. Stunning views from the cafÃ© make it perfect for relaxing, and kids will love the play areas and pond dipping.
