Road & Rail Trains

The Marwell Railway

Marwell Zoo is set in 140 acres of beautiful Hampshire countryside, and your visit can be as relaxed or active as you'd like. Most of our guests hop on one of our two trains during their visit.

Road train

For those who need a little help getting around the zoo, simply hop aboard our FREE road train service.  Our trains are equipped to carry one standard manual sized wheelchair.

Board our free road train from the following stops around the zoo (subject to availability)

  • Gift shop
  • Giraffes
  • Tigers
  • Fur, Feathers & Scales
  • Snow Leopards

Please view the timetables displayed at each stop.

Rail Train

Please note our rail train is currently not running.

From Spring until October complete your visit with a scenic trip on our 64 passenger train running at weekends and school holidays (subject to availability). Park your buggy on the train platform opposite Penguin Cove then jump aboard for a 15 minute round trip past our capybaras, flamingos, pygmy hippos, white rhinos, Grevy's zebras, scimitar-horned oryx and ostrich. At the end of the line is an island that the train circles, this area is under development and you'll soon be able to find out how you can help us to improve it. Watch this space.

Support our charity

Rail train prices are £2.50 per person with under 3's travelling free.

You can pay at the station as you board or by card in advance at the shop. All proceeds go to the care of our animals in the zoo and our conservation programmes in the UK and Africa.
