What sets Marwell Wildlife apart from many other zoos are its lovely grounds which are just perfect picnicking territory come the warmer months. Surrounding the Grade I listed Marwell Hall (where Henry VIII is reputed to have married Jane Seymour), the Formal Garden includes a representation of three garden styles - the knot, parterre and kitchen gardens - from the 16th and 17th centuries which show what plants and flowers the king and Jane might have wandered past as they whispered sweet nothings to each other. Over at the zoo, there are 170 different types of species including showstoppers like the snow leopards, giraffes and cheetahs plus quirky fellows like the laughing kookaburra and the white-faced scops owl. Get the kids to hunt the marine objects hidden in the underground section of Penguin Cove next to which is now a lovely new play area. Talks and feeds happen regularly through the day and there is a super calendar of events for school holidays.
