Plenty of car parking is a bonus. Until 2 years ago, we bought annual passes for 10 years - but then few animals seemed to be on view - we were told "we keep animals in their natural environment" :( I went 3 days running to see the Snow Leopard Cub and stayed all day with flask and sandwiches ......

Went with my kids, saw almost every single animal from the children books, took ~3 hours on foot to do one cycle. Loved the amazon greenhouse. Excellent price to value ratio, kids loved it, one of few places I would consider going again. Highly recommended.

Marwell is a fantastic day out, good for any age! The area focuses on Conservation which is excellent and the animals have very large habitats so doesn't feel like you are just gawking at animals in a typical zoo. I even met some new species like the Fossa which I had never heard of! There are regular stops for bathrooms... More

This a great zoo for all the family. One of the first zoos that actually had large places for the animals to accommodate. Lots of different animals, lots of fun.... And if thou are heading this direction and you love animals.... come to Marwell!!

Visited w/c 15 Sept and saw the Amur leopard cub. Well worth the visit and worth becoming an annual member. A fair bit of walking but lots to see and well laid out. Enclosures nice and animals look well. Well done Marwell staff and owners for making it a nice place to visit. Picnic areas and cafes with a good... More

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

We went yesterday on our way back from a break in Somerset and as always it was brilliant, clean tidy and focused on the animals. Zoos are not prima facie nice places; they may be considered as prisons for animals BUT they have a significant role to play in conservation and education, and the staff and volunteers clearly love the...

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
