What sets Marwell Wildlife apart from many other zoos are its lovely, 140 acre, grounds; Perfect picnicking territory come the warmer months, or great for jumping in leaves and puddles through the autumn and winter.

At the zoo, there are an incredible range of species including showstoppers such as snow leopards, giraffes and cheetahs plus quirky fellows like the ring-tailed coatis and a range of cold blooded creatures.

The new Lemur Loop, opened summer 2017, allows you to immerse yourself into the animals natural habitat. The four species of lemur have free reign in their enclosure and can choose to hang above your head or step a little closer to inspect you. Please check website for Lemur Loop opening times.

Opening in 2018 is Marwell's biggest ever project. At a cost of £7.8M, this exciting exhibit will span two levels offering fantastic vantage points across a lush, tropical canopy and the opportunity to experience the captivating life of the forest floor. Guests will be free to share the habitat and enjoy uninterrupted, close-up views of new, colourful and charismatic mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and insects whilst learning about the flow of energy through life.

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.

Review of Marwell Zoo

Posted on by Tony CCustomer visited Sep 2017

Spent a good 5 hrs at the zoo with our 3 year old granddaughter showing us around who with her mum has an annual pass as they live nearby. Even though it was a relatively cold day for September (gets windy here) my wife and I were impressed with the site. With it being cold some of the animals were reluctant to come out to see us - but seek and ye shall find. It was well maintained, reasonably priced (for an attraction) knowing your money helps towards maintaining species that are endangered from extinction. Have noticed some reviews condemning the price of food at the 'Cafe Graze' self service restaurant, but we thought that with the very good quality of the food we had the prices were more than acceptable but plenty of places for a picnic if preferred. Definitely somewhere to LOOK around taking your time and not rushing through. When we went the Great Lego Brick Safari (running until 1st October 2017) was on and brilliant for all to see and was interactive with a massive Lego 'Pool' for kids and adults alike to build in and enjoy. Go online to view the reasonable day ticket prices.

Clean and tidy, you can get very close to some of the animals, which is fantastic for smaller children. The animals look healthy and content. We grabbed a sandwich in one of the main restaurants which had a good selection with plenty of seating and quick sevice. All in all, considering it was half term, a very good family day out.

We visited on what was a lovely warm and sunny early autumn Sunday afternoon with the children. The grounds are so lovely and everything is so well set out. There is so much to see.. my favourites are always the giraffes. Had lunch there too in the excellent restaurant. Love this place!

The animals are happy, clean, cared for with large spaces to move around. This zoo is a feast for both the heart and the eyes. The cafe and restaurants serve wonderful high quality food and if the sun is out you can enjoy a beer and a barbecue. It’s great for families and an alternative to the usual date of a cinema or restaurant. I went with my partner and it was absolutely cool. I recommend to everyone and anyone

Had a lovely time walking around seeing all the animals, took advantage of the tractor and train rides. Really like how close you can get to the penguins and giraffes. Look forward to taking our little girl when she is old enough to appreciate the animals, can see us being regular visitors!

We were staying at the hotel across the road so couldn’t not pop in to have a look at the animals! Really nice zoo with plenty to do and see. Take your time and explore all this zoo has to offer because it’s too easy to rush through. We spent a good couple of hours here enjoying the animals.
