WWT Arundel Wetland Centre

Mill Road
West Sussex
BN18 9PB

Gliding through our reed beds in silent electric boats is the best opportunity in Britain to glimpse a rare water vole or see vividly-coloured kingfishers.

Another prized resident is the nene, the goose saved from extinction by WWT founder Sir Peter Scott and still one of the world's rarest water-birds.

Springtime fills the valley with wildflowers and warbler songs; summer brings exciting pond-dipping discoveries; as winter starts, Bewick's swans return and water rails emerge.

Our Visitor Centre gallery offers stunning views of Swan Lake.

The Waters Edge Cafe is licensed and our Gift Shop allows shopping until the centre closes each day.

Hand feeds ducks, geese and swans from all over the world.

Stroll through part of one of the biggest reed beds in Sussex to hear water rail, warblers and other rare birds.

Follow the themed Discovery Trails around the reserve, a fun way to learn.

Go Pond Dipping on weekends and school holidays April through October.

Guided Boat Safaris run daily through Wetlands Discovery and are included in Admission fees.

Climb on the giant bird feeders in our Tree Creepers adventure or play on the Pondskater.
