Planning your visit to Marwell

Children with binoculars

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

  1. Open daily from 10am
    We close between 4pm-6pm depending on time of year (and all day on Christmas and Boxing Day).
  2. Easy to get to + plenty of free parking
    We're signposted from the M3 and M27.
  3. Family friendly food (or bring your picnic)
    We have cafe's, kiosks and picnic areas.
  4. Clean toilets and baby-changing facilities
    As we said - we're parents too!
  5. Adventure playgrounds
    Children love watching the animals - but they still need to run, swing and slide!
