Children LOVE watching the animals at Marwell, or riding on the train - but every parent knows that sometimes children need to run!
That's why we have 5 adventure playgrounds at Marwell, so the children can swing like lemurs, climb like monkeys, run like cheetahs and slide like penguins.
Of course parents must play a supervisory role - but can sit like hippos if they wish.
The playgrounds are sensibly placed around the zoo, and during busier times of the year it is always possible to grab a cup of tea or coffee nearby - to drink while you watch.
Amazing day at Marwell zoo, topped by feeding the giraffes. Husband and I fed 7 giraffes by hand. I got sneezed on by kwame, the large male - brilliant!! Loved little Ruby. Very hands on. Not rushed at all. Thank you Megan, for making this an amazing experience for us both…Cathryn, 4th February 2016
