Getting to Marwell
Marwell is situated just off the B2177 between Colden Common and Bishops Waltham. Just follow the large brown tourist signs. If you’re planning a motorway route, then head off the M3 at J11 or the M27 at J10 (westbound) or J5 (eastbound).
There’s plenty of FREE parking, however, make sure you take all your valuables with you since we don’t accept any responsibility or liability for theft or damage.
Clearly we love animals so request that you leave all dogs and other pets at home and don’t leave them to suffer in your car.
Coaches are welcome to park for free in our large car park located just outside the main entrance.
