Download the free Marwell Zoo app

Our free app is full of fascinating animal facts, animal feed times and a handy map to show you around our 140-acre park.

Don’t forget to take part in our park app trails too! Marwell’s Mighty Trail is an interactive experience that explores the natural “superpowers” of some of the animals at the zoo.

There are bonus activities that will prompt plenty of laughs along the way and when you have all of the letters just click the “Enter to WIN” icon on the trail map for a chance to win Annual Membership for two adults and two children!

Our tremendous Tree Trail is a great way to explore the wonderful trees of Marwell. Some of the trees on the Marwell estate date back to the early 14th century more than 100 years before the Wars of the Roses.

Check our feed times

Our animal feed times are available at the information cabin at admissions or on our free Marwell Zoo app. Pop along and watch the likes of our red-necked wallaby, crocodile monitor and ring-tailed lemurs being fed.

Dress for the great British weather 🌦

We have several indoor areas where you can see our resident animals and learn about their habitats such as the Energy for Life: Tropical House, Wild Explorers, Thriving Through Nature and Life Among the Trees.

There are also covered picnic spots and Cafe Graze which has a covered seating area for guests to enjoy their food away from the elements.

We are, however, primarily an outdoor attraction, so we recommend bringing appropriate footwear, warm layers and waterproofs so you don’t get caught out!

If you forget on the day, don’t worry – you can buy a super stylish Marwell poncho from Café Graze or our Gift Shop.

Take your time

Channel your inner safari ranger and take your time at the zoo. We recommend wandering around at a leisurely pace, enjoying our animals and their immersive habitats.
