Four adults and 2 children below the age for which we had to pay an entrance fee cost over £70. I guess in a way i am still against animals in cages especially when you cant see them. Its the usual animals asleep large animals Giraffe, Rhino, Zebra that you cant miss anyway. Dinosaur attraction was quite good but finishes... More

Had a great sunny afternoon at Marwell. We arrived about 12:30 and left about 4:45 and felt that we'd had a good day out on what was probably one of the last sunny days of the year. Parking was easy and had no wait to pay so we were quickly in. Since the last time we've been there has clearly... More

Visited for first time in a couple of years and what a bitter disappointment. Toilets weren't clean, hand dryers broken blue paper towel roll was wet, lack of soap - a must in an animal environment. The drink and food huts normally dotted about were shut leaving just the main ones heaving. Distinct lack of animals to view walked through... More

Had a great day out at Marwell Zoo, whilst the park was busy, it was not overly busy ( I guess the prices have something to do with that 35% increase for summer really….) and we had no trouble getting to see everything. Some of the fields look empty, but the animals are often in their enclosures, so you need... More

My 2yr old being a massive animal nut, we decided to take him out for the day to Marwell. We all loved it so much that we bought annual passes (They will take off the entry price from the annual pass if you decide to get one the same day) and went back the following day. The annual pass also... More

Lots of wildlife in a well-managed supporting environment, so that breeding takes place, with mum's and babies easily viewed. Little,train and lots of eateries. Between Winchester and Southampton Int. airport at Eastleigh.

This was our second visit to Marwell Wildlife and was as enjoyable as our first. The staff are friendly and helpful, the animals are looked after well. Each enclosure has information about the animals which is informative and answers the questions you have. During this visit it rained but this did not dampen our day as there are lots of... More

We took our two boys for a day having previously been annual members for a couple of years. Sad to say we were disappointed. The dinosaurs were good but the shed designated to "experiencing close up to dinosaurs" was closed and not opened all day. The various sheds serving ice cream and tea or coffee were all closed. Several enclosures... More

I liked the layout of the zoo, and how visitors can walk around the compounds. That is really lovely. And everywhere there are some nice stations with additional information. The cafe is nicely placed in the area. The selection of animals is really good. Nice variety and I like it e.g. that they have three different kinds of zebras.
