Arundel Wetland Centre is open on Monday 16 July, the day the Olympic Torch passes through the town of Arundel. WWT Arundel Wetland Centre is a pleasant 12 minute walk from the centre of Arundel. “If you are planning to see the Olympic Torch in the afternoon you can still enjoy a visit to Arundel Wetland Centre, then leave your car with us and take a lovely stroll to see the entertainment and torch activities in town.” says Olivia Iles, the manager of Arundel Wetland Centre.
Mill Road in Arundel will be closed between 12:30-4:30pm to accommodate access to the Arundel Castle for the Olympic Torch on the Monday 16 July. Visitors to Arundel Wetland Centre will be able to park in the wetland reserve car park before the road closes at 12.30pm but their cars will have to remain in the car park until Mill Road reopens at 4:30pm.
The car park at Arundel Wetland Centre has 100 parking spaces available on the day of the Olympic Torch Relay; some space has been reserved for four coaches that are bringing school children to the event at Arundel Castle. Parking at the centre is free for Wildfowl & Wetland Trust members. On Monday 16 July other visitors who park in the Arundel Wetland Centre car park will be charged £5 – this will be refunded at the visitor centre admissions desk if they pay to visit the reserve.
WWT Arundel Wetland Centre is open from 9:30 am – 5:30 pm seven days a week. Call 01903 881530 or visit www.wwt.org.uk/arundel for more information.
