Don’t miss our Easter activities!

April 5, 2023

There’s lots to do at Marwell Zoo, including Easter activities, offers, 100s of animals, adventure playgrounds, and more! We hope you’ve been having a great holiday so far and we can’t wait to see you if you’ve still yet to visit.

Here are some of the exciting things you have to look forward to around the zoo…

Return for FREE

We’re hoping to help make the pennies go a little bit further this Easter thanks to the return of our free return visit incentive.

Every ticket bought in advance for a visit between 1 and 16 April will also entitle guests to a free return visit within seven days, giving you twice as many reasons to visit the zoo! T&Cs apply.

‘Appy Egg Trail

Appy Egg Trail graphic design poster. Text reads: "8 eggs have been hidden around the zoo... Download our FREE Marwell Zoo app to see the clues and track them down. Unscramble the mystery animal and enter into a prize draw to WIN annual membership for you and your family! Open to existing members. T&C apply. FREE public wifi.

Take part in our ‘Appy Egg Trail and you could be in with the chance to WIN Annual Membership for you and your family! We will also be sending small prizes to more than 15 lucky runners up. The trail ends on 16 April and your last chance to enter the competition is 20 April. You won’t want to miss this Easter activity – good luck!

Each of the clues is a fun riddle to read to your little ones. If your youngsters like having something to write or tick off, we encourage you to bring a notebook and pencil to note each letter as you find them! Taking a photo of each egg is also a great way to remember the letters and work out the anagram.

If you’re having trouble accessing the trail, or haven’t used our app for a few years, you may still have our old app. You will need to delete this and install the new one.

Animal Feeds

Download our free Marwell Zoo app to view animal feed times. There’s lots on, from tiger and snow leopard feeds, to red river hogs, zebras, and more!

These will vary each day in the holidays, so be sure to take a look each day you visit.

Keepers in Action

This Easter, catch our Keepers in Action! As they carry out their duties with different species around the zoo, they’ll be happy to chat and answer your questions for a short while.

Make sure you have notifications and bluetooth enabled in our app to get notified of the times and when someone is nearby! Times can also be seen on the screen by our Info Cabin.

Penguin Cove has reopened

We’re excited to announce that Penguin Cove is fully open again after restrictions due to bird flu. Visit our colony and marvel as they swim through the water at the underwater viewing area.

Exclusive app offers

Our app really is the best way to make the most of your day. As well as our trail, day planner, feeds and Easter activities, we have exclusive food and drink offers available only on our free app. See them in the “Offers” section under the “Explore” tab.

From buy one, get one free on whippy ice cream, to a free hot drink when you buy a delicous breakfast pastry, it’s worth checking back throughout the day as offers are time-sensitive!
