Road Train

Guest update

Our road trains are currently not operating.  For more information please click here.

Marwell Zoo is set in 140 acres of beautiful Hampshire countryside, and your visit can be as relaxed or active as you’d like. Most of our guests hop on our trains during their visit.

Why not use our free Marwell Zoo app as you ride the train? With headphones you can listen to our audio tour based on your location in the zoo!

Road Train

For those who need a little help getting around the zoo, simply hop aboard our FREE road train service. Our trains are equipped to carry one standard sized manual wheelchair – accessed from the rear of the train. Please be aware of guests with access needs waiting at road train stops and be prepared to give up your seat if required.

Board our free road train from the following stops around the zoo (subject to availability).

  • Gift shop
  • Giraffes
  • Tigers (for the entrance to Tropical House)
  • Fur, Feathers & Scales

Please view the timetables displayed at each stop.

On our busier days we recommend boarding the road train early in the day.

For guests with pushchairs and buggies, there’s a free pushchair park at each stop. Items are left at your own risk since we don’t accept any responsibility or liability for theft or damage.

Alternatively, buggies that are small enough to be folded and placed securely under the seats in the carriages are welcome on board the road train. Space under the seats available for pushchairs in the front two carriages:

80cm x 43cm x 36cm – two rows at the end of the carriages with wheel arches

170cm x 43cm x 36cm – two rows in the centre of carriages

Supporting our charity

Rail train prices are £2.50 per person with under 3’s travelling free.

You can pay by card at the station as you board. If you wish to pay by cash then please make payment in advance at our gift shop. All proceeds go to the care of our animals in the zoo and our conservation programmes in the UK and Africa.
