Marwell Wildlife, Winchester Reviews

  • Wonderful little zoo. You can easily spend the whole day here and there is plenty to do and see, even for the little ones. It is easily wheelchair accessible, although there is a small hill to/from the car park. There is a little train to take you around, which is free to ride; just hop on and off at several stops around the park. The animals seem well cared for and the enclosures were clean. The obligatory gift shop caters for all tastes and budgets, from cheap souvenirs to high end art work. There are plenty of spots for photographers and many of the enclosures have a clear wall or window too.

  • We all loved it (2 kids 3 and 5). Nice setting with more than just a walk around animal enclosures. Great little steam train takes you around some of the park. Road train helps when little legs are getting tired (I wish it went around more often as the waits at the stops in the wet weather were not fun). Well kept and good variety of animals. Fun full day of entertainment!

  • It's a wonderful place. My son (3) loves the penguins and the lemurs. The Graze Cafe is a good place for lunch (although you are invited to bring picnics etc) and the free tractor ride which is on a constant loop around the park is a fantastic way to get about if little legs get tired. My son and I have just renewed our membership for the second year in a row. Love the place.

  • Love it here 😊 I'd put pictures but it would spoil your own experience get out there and enjoy. Easy a day out if you absorb and take your time. Plenty of toilets and places to eat. Also very accessible for prams or wheel chairs 👍

  • Had a nice 4 hour visit here. The big cats and giraffe were especially interesting, including tropical wildlife. The zoo is constructing an additional tropical animals sanctuary for 2018. £16 per adult Inc donation.
