Good day out with a toddler

Reasonably priced, lots to see and animal welfare seems to be to a good standard. My toddler had a tumble off a bench and cut his lip and the park first responders were there... read more

Always a great day out at Marwell Zoo. I've been with my kids, they absolutely love it and the animals always seem well looked after. I've also been with just my partner and had equally as much fun! The facilities are great, decent food available at the Graze Café, including warm meals which helps on the cold days! Love this... More

Both me and my other half are 25. We both have visited Marwell when we were younger so wanted to come back and see it as adults. We were not disappointed! We visited on a cold rainy day in January 2017, and had the best time! 95% of the animals were out and about and were able to be seen.... More

Reasonably priced, lots to see and animal welfare seems to be to a good standard. My toddler had a tumble off a bench and cut his lip and the park first responders were there before we even picked him up. Great customer service.

Visited this zoo as part of a Groupon deal, which included a two night stay at the hotel. The zoo was of course quite quiet for this time of the year. Good and easy access to all enclosures. Sad to say that a lot of the enclosures seemed to be empty which was quite disappointing, perhaps it’s the time of... More

Just returned from a January day at the park. Very impressed with the whole thing. As it is Winter we didn't expect all the animals/birds to be out so we were not surprised. However we still found ample to look at. The facilities are definitely set up for Summer but there is still loads open for snacks, coffee etc. Everything... More

A little late getting this review written but we went to the Santa experience on the first weekend of December with kids aged 4, 6 and 8. It was really good, the best one we'd been to and coupled with a day at the wildlife park was a real treat for the kids, and us adults too actually! The whole... More

Girlfriend and I thought it'd be good to check out the local zoo when we visited Winchester for the weekend. The staff were so friendly - even when trying to get us out because we were the last ones left in the park! Such a great experience getting up close to some of the animals - especially 9 giraffe in... More
