Scouting the zoo

12th - 13th September 2020

Coronavirus: 20 March 2020

Following the very latest government advice regarding Coronavirus (issued by the Prime Minister on Friday 20 March at 17.00hrs), we have taken the necessary decision to temporarily close Marwell Zoo, with immediate effect.

As such, the zoo will not be open until further notice.

We fully support the government’s latest measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 by limiting social contact, and whilst we have 140-acres of open space to enjoy, we also have many areas where close contact is unavoidable. We therefore feel this is the only and correct course of action available to us in order to limit social interaction in line with the clear recommendations laid out by the Prime Minister.


Calling all Scouts, Cubs, Beavers, Guides, Rainbows and Brownies to join us for our Scouting the Zoo event!

Ticket price: £17.00 per child & £17.00 per adult 1 in 6 free 

  • Exciting Activities including: Trail, Take-home Craft, Workshops inside Marwell Hall and in the Secret Garden and Animal talks (*All activities are subject to availability – more details confirmed nearer the time) 
  • Scouting the Zoo 2020 badge for all attendees. 

Our booking facility has been disabled due to the current situation and we will update this information when this changes.
