Photographic experience days


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.


Here at Marwell Zoo, we strive to work towards a better future for our animals. Our conservation efforts, both in the UK and Africa, have seen incredible restorations of their habitats. With that said, without sustainable living and greater care for some of our most beloved animals, an increasing number of species are becoming extinct.

One of the best ways to witness the beauty of this earth is through photography, with wildlife photographers having the opportunity to get up-close-and-personal with some of Earth’s most majestic creatures. From tigers and snow leopards to penguins and giraffes, photographers allow us to see life through their lens, getting us closer to these animals than ever before.

Our experiences offer you an exclusive day with our expert photographer, Jason Brown, within the historic and picturesque setting of Marwell Zoo. You’ll have the opportunity to capture some spectacular images of our exotic and endangered species from a range of public and restricted access areas.

Cute, cuddly, furry or feathery – if wildlife photography is your passion then capture life through a lens on one of our unique Photographic Experience Days.
