A friend of mine needed to get some bird food, which was the reason for this visit. The cafe overlooks a lake full of birds. Staff were really nice, and the place was clean, and tidy. Educational for all the family.

Took my young son for a visit and he absolutely loved it. It is so well laid out, plenty to keep his interest as well as the playgrounds. Lovely café and shop, and all the staff were fabulous... Great day had by all.

Great place for tranquillity, hides perfectly placed, I haven't taken young children but perfect for introducing them to nature

Unfortunately, I think we chose the wrong season as many of the ponds were completely bare of birds. The resident birds were very interesting. However, from the hides there was almost nothing to see. Will need to visit at a different time of the year.

Well laid out, could easily spend the whole day here, plenty to see especially on the electric boat safari with a knowledgeable guide.

You cannot rent kayaks at Arundel Wetland Centre. We do have a free boat ride in electric boats piloted by a wildlife guide.
