Arundel Wetland Centre
Looking for what to do with wildlife in Sussex? WWT Arundel is a natural attraction, a 65-acre reserve in an idyllic setting, nestled at the base of the South Downs National Park. Gliding through the reed beds in silent electric boats is the best opportunity in West Sussex 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.
Families enjoy our year-round attractions like the pond skaters adventure, a tree creeper play area and daily hand-feeding of the many birds.
Our Waters Edge Café offers hot meals, light bites and children’s meals. Order one of our delicious cakes to accompany a specialty coffee or tea.
