First of all it's not a Zoo ,it's a quest game :"Find an animals". Park is big but there not a lot animals in enclosures. It's more likely looks like a park for a picnic .Bring your own food and drinks(SMALL Bottle of water 1.50£)!!! Food there is overpriced.Rise of the dinosaurs -nothing special, just a mechanical plastic models of... More

Myself, my husband and my 2 yr old visited the zoo looking forward to a fun day out. It turned out to be really disappointing. First we were asked if it was ok if 10% of our entrance fee went to gift aid. We agreed, but the cashier failed to tell us that it would cost us more. We ended... More

Spent a day here last week with my wife and 2 grandchildren (6 and 2). The day was excellent all round and all of us enjoyed our day in the park looking at the huge variety of animals in their large enclosures and "dinasour spotting" too. We booked online in advance which saved a bit of a queue and also... More

Brilliant way to see the park without all the crowds. 2 excellent tour leaders who were really knowledgable and friendly. They took around the park and told us all about the animals, their jobs and made the tour really interesting. If you fancy going and avoiding the kids and crowds, do the sunset walk

Beautiful countryside with animals in large grassy paddocks. Lots of animals to see and lots of space to enjoy.

We visited Marwell Zoo on 19/06/2014. On arrival the cashier will automatically add on a donation to the already overpriced entry ticket. It then makes US as the customer feel awkward to ask them to deduct the supposedly "voluntary" donation from our total. Not a great start. Marwell Zoo have stopped giving you free parks maps and so you have... More

I visited marwell on Friday with my 4 year old son as a much ended mum and son time. I am very disappointed with our visit, we spent the whole day there and whilst the facilities were good my son continually commented where the animals were and I had to agree with him. I fully understand that you cannot make... More

Had a nice family day out withe two young families. Nice spacious enclosures, for viewing animals, Giraffe enclosure especially good. Indeed the whole zoo aspect of our visit was excellent. Interactive children's exhibits invariably did not work which was disappointing. Food at the venue was simply appalling, unappetising sanwiches invariably containing curry !! or a burger available from two witless... More
