The Ark gift shop at Marwell

Gift Shop

Situated close to the zoo exit, our Gift Shop is a treasure trove of wild and wonderful goodies. Packed with tempting treats to suit all ages and pockets it’s a must-see final stop before you leave.

Best of all, the profits from sales made in our shop are returned to the charity. This means that in parting with your pennies you’re making a very welcome contribution to the care of our animals in the zoo and our conservation programmes around the world.

Tempting treats

Just when you thought there could be nothing cuter than a Humboldt penguin in a wetsuit, we bring you a miniature, cuddly version of our zoo superstar ‘Ralph’! Complete with their very own removable wetsuit, modelled on Ralph’s trendy, personalised O’Neill suit, these toy penguins are now available to buy for just £8.50 each.

Our Vet Sets are the perfect present for the aspiring young vets! These cute little sets include everything children need to take care of their sick teddies and soft toy pets. Presented in a colourful carry case, the vet role play toy sets contains a pretend thermometer, syringe, and other essential accessories to ensure the cuddly toy patient is back on its feet in no time! The sets are available for £15.99 and are a great souvenir for young animal lovers after a day at the zoo!

Trading Post Gift Shop
