Planning your visit to Marwell

Giraffes Looking down

We're parents too. We understand that a great day out requires getting the basics right. We keep it simple:

We’re making some changes at the zoo...

We’re delighted to be in the middle of a 10 year period during which we will spend £17m on developing the zoo. This includes our new £8m Tropical House exhibit showcasing a host of new species including colourful and charismatic mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and insects.

Our red panda has moved in to her new home and she has been joined by male red panda Peter, who recently arrived from Gaia Zoo in the Netherlands!

Our meerkats can currently be seen from an enclosure on the back lawn behind Marwell Zoo.

Wallaby walkthrough

Thanks to a very generous legacy donation, Wallaby Walkthrough will be inaccessible to guests after October half term until Easter 2020. We are excited to be revamping the exhibit to make it a better experience for both our wallabies and guests. During this time, our wallaby troupe will be off show to guests. This update will also affect the red panda enclosure. Guests will still be able to see our adorable pair but won't have full access to the enclosure.

Remember to keep an eye out for our recent new arrivals and watch this space for any updates.
