We have a yearly pass and took our 4 year old grandson here twice over the school holidays and he loved every minute of it. The Dinosaurs were a great hit (I hope they have them again next year). We always take a picnic as I do think the food is a bit overpriced and if its busy it can... More

I took my family to Marwell today & we all had a thoroughly great time. There are so many animals to see from cheeky penguins, monkeys & lemurs to graceful gazelles & majestic big cats as well as exotic birds & reptiles. We found we had plenty of photo opportunities but mainly we just enjoyed watching the animals interacting. Our... More

Took our granddaughter who is 8, considering we were there from 10:30 in the morning until 5pm it was a very good day out and great value for money going to a good cause. Lots of places where you can have picnics, we ate in the main cafe, again clean and tidy with a good selection of snacks and lunchtime... More

I went to Marwell on Saturday with a friend. £18 each for entry which included a donation, the staff were very open about this and gave us the option to opt out, this was standard across everyone being admitted at the time we were there. The staff were pleasant and knowledgable. The food was really tasty, perhaps a little more... More

We've been to Marwell several times, but the cost of entry for 3 of us was now £50, and a sandwich and 2 hotdogs plus 3 drinks was £22. That is a lot of money for a lot of empty pens. I remember there being more to see, last time. The animals are well kept in good environments but the... More

We visited with our two grandchildren who are 6 yrs & 16 months old. They both enjoyed their trip especially on the road train which you could get on/off at will, the only issue was that your pushchair as without help was difficult to place in the trolley. Loved the penguins, giraffes',meerkats and the fantastic snow leopards. It was a... More

We took a group of five wheelchair users here to Marwell and it was a good day out. The zoo is well maintained and the animals cared for. We did manage to see the new baby leopard cub which was a bonus. However for the disabled be aware that the park is large and has many steep slopes and hills.... More

Visited with my sister and our mother who is in a wheelchair. Found it hard going at times due to Some very steep slopes and unable to get close to some of the animals because of gravel paths. It is almost impossible to push an adult in a wheelchair over lose gravel! Hence never got to see the gardens around... More

My daughter and I took her three children ages 14, 13 and 9. Although it drizzled all day we found most of the animals were outside. Didn't see the baby leopard and mother they were obviously in their den due to the weather. The tigers and snow leopards were amazing. We had the bonus of the animatronic dinosaurs and enjoyed...

I went to Marwell with my 7 year old and 2 year old and we all had a lovely time. It is a LONG walk around, so do use the free tractor/trailer that travels around the park regularly - it can help in that post lunch slump to get you from one bit of the park to another! The zoo... More
