Marwell Zoo details...

Embrace your wild side at Marwell Zoo!

Home to hundreds of endangered and exotic species in 140-acres of stunning landscape, there’s so much for the whole family to enjoy and admire – it’s the perfect summer attraction or ‘daycation’ destination.

From towering Rothschild’s giraffes to beautiful birds, Marwell offers you the opportunity to get face-to-face with some amazing members of the animal kingdom.

Conservation charity Marwell Wildlife owns and operates the zoo, so by visiting you’ll be helping amazing projects to conserve habitats and species both in Hampshire and around the globe.

Next stop: Paradise! Don’t miss a trip to the innovative ‘Energy for Life: Tropical House’. This sustainable exhibit shows off an impressive environment where summer is eternal  and free-flying birds soar overhead. As you walk through this immersive display, peer through lush greenery and get face-to-face with Rica, the Linne’s two-toed sloth.

Enjoy fascinating daily animal talks and feeds with Rothschild’s giraffes, meerkats and Humboldt penguins.*

The miniature railway is great for up-close animal sights and the new road train makes for a relaxing ride!*     

Let your little monkeys go wild in one of their adventure playgrounds – okapi playground is NEW for summer 2020!

Plus, enjoy a new wallaby walkthrough experience that includes a water feature, idyllic dwell area and natural seating – the perfect spot for relaxation.

Their super exciting new event: SUPERSIZED! is now at the park until 1 November 2020! The larger than life brick adventure features up to 30 models of real-life creatures bursting with eye-popping colour and size.

Look out for new arrivals, big and small, around the zoo throughout the year!

Marwell Zoo is open daily from 10am, 363 days a year. Closing times and admissions prices vary.
