Our day trip to Marwell Zoo was great. Really enjoyed ourselves. I went to Marwell zoo expecting to see the bat house which Im sure I remember seeing on my last visit. There are also no animals such as goats, which I know are farm animals and this is a zoo, but I'm sure there used to be these too.... More

We visited Marwell on 18th November for a day out with grandchildren. Beautiful sunny day and the surroundings looked stunning. The whole site is remarkably sheltered and picturesque - especially with the surrounding trees turning to vibrant autumn colours. And another thing: there is hardly any traffic noise - so you really can appreciate the animal habitats without distraction. And... More

Easy to get around the entire site with a buggy, lots of places to stop and eat/drink/refresh. Lots of different animals to see and get very close to - espcially the Giraffes and Penguins! A pleasant and lovely place to go - and at a reasonable price too!

We have not visited the zoo for a few years and loved it just as much as before. Lovely enclosures and so many animals to fill a whole day easily. There are good paths all the way round and the whole park is clean and well signposted. The only negative was we really felt the cost of food in the... More

Beautiful easy walking area from Winchester with a lovely river and white swans and cygnets. Well worth a stroll away from the city center. Very good sign posting showing directions to all of Winchester's places of interest.

This is a brilliant place make sure you set aside a whole day to see it all. The park is large and all the animals have substantial specially designed living spaces. This means you have to be patient and look carefully for some who are tucked away asleep but even then you can usually get a peek. "014 was a... More

Marwell is a fantastic place to visit any when but the best time for me is when they have jeep safaris in the evening, Feeding the giraffes is amazing and I can watch the meer cats for ages. Although the zoo is my favourite I found that my two teenage grandsons also loved their day out at the zoo and... More

Marwell is a truly special experience. I take my three Grand daughters as often as I possibly can because it is such a joy for me to see their little faces when they see the animals that they have read about in books, in real life. They are always so amazed at just how huge the Giraffes and Lions are... More
