New Play Area

Head up just past the Tigers and let the kids explore our brand new play area.  With plenty of things to climb, swing and slide on for all ages, the kids can let off steam and enjoy themselves – plus there’s a coffee shop just next door so you can stop to get some refreshments first!

Tropical House

Spanning two levels our Tropical House offers fantastic vantage points where guests can experience face-to-face encounters with a diversity of wildlife and exotic plants in a tropical climate, while learning about the flow of energy through life.

This innovative and sustainable exhibit marks the second phase of a £17m investment programme over the next 8-10 years, creating improved habitats for animals and more immersive experiences for our guests.


Wild Explorers

Experience the African wilderness first hand at Wild Explorers. Marwell is actively involved in conserving the three iconic species – white rhinos, scimitar-horned oryx and Grevy’s zebra – housed in this exhibit, so its setting and design reveal how we study and observe these species in the wild.

A host of new arrivals are in residence at any time – check out our most recent arrivals and births.

Plus don’t miss our events that run throughout school holidays!
