Bentley Wildfowl Museum Museums
Near Lewes, East Sussex
See our fascinating collection of over 1000 swans, geese and ducks from all over the world. A new trail with interactive boards makes learning about wildlife and woodland management fun! Plus with a childrens' adventure playground, gift shop, and cafe, with tempting home-made fayre, Bentley is a complete family day out!
The Black Swans from Australia are some of the most popular birds. They are quite tame (except for breeding pairs which are kept separately) and most attractive with their black plumage, red beaks and white flight feathers. The Trumpeter Swans really do make a trumpeting noise, raising and lowering their heads to do so and are very entertaining to watch. The Eider Duck and Cereopsis Goose also have distinctive sounds.
An ever-popular part of Bentley is the Adventure Playground where children up to the age of 10 can let off steam. Nearby is the terminus of the miniature steam train which is run by volunteers at weekends from April to September and East Sussex half terms and holidays and every Sunday in Winter (weather permitting) as well as Wednesdays in July and August and other special occasions. The train can be used as an alternative means of reaching or returning from the Wood as there is a second station near to the beginning of the Woodland trail.
