Marwell Zoo

Click to enlarge this slide

Set in 140 acres of delightful Hampshire countryside, Marwell Zoo is a safe, relaxing and fascinating place to visit with your friends and families.

From tiny ants to gigantic giraffe, there’s an incredible range of exotic and endangered species to discover and amazing animal facts to uncover. Couple this with Marwell’s Explorer Trail, fact packed animal talks, train and adventure playgrounds and you’re certain to enjoy a fun packed day out.

What’s more, your visit to Marwell Zoo will be making a big contribution to our projects to conserve species and habitats, both here in Hampshire and around the world. Their work as a registered conservation charity is a lot more widespread and influential than you might realise so whilst you’re feeling good you’ll also be doing good!

With the new Lemur Walkthrough opening this summer, they look forward to welcoming you soon.


Explore Marwell Zoo all year round (except Christmas Day and Boxing Day). The Zoo is open at 10am every day and last entry is 90 minutes before they close.
