WWT Arundel Wetland Centre

WWT

 

WWT Arundel Wetland Centre is a 65-acre reserve in an idyllic setting, nestled at the base of the South Downs National Park.

ArunbirdingGliding through the 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.

 

Wide, paved walkways lead you through a collection of wildfowl from around the world and six bird hides where you can watch the wildlife.WWTARUNboat

The boardwalk offers an enchanting stroll through one of the largest reed beds in Sussex.

 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. Pond dipping is free during weekends and holidays from April through October. Visit the website www.wwt.org.uk/arundel for a full listing of exciting, seasonal events, walks and courses.

 

Pond-dip-ArunThe Waters Edge Café offers hot meals, light bites and children’s meals. There are many delicious cakes on offer to accompany a specialty coffee or tea.

 

The gift shop has natured themed toys with prices the suit children’s pocket money. For the adults there are many fair-trade goods, a wide variety of bird and wildlife habitats. The shop stocks a wide range of books, for everyone from the serious ‘birder’ to those just starting to explore nature.
