Marwell Zoo

Marwell’s 140-acre park is home to an incredible range of exotic and endangered species, in beautiful, landscaped surroundings.

Just by visiting Marwell Zoo (owned and operated by conservation charity, Marwell Wildlife) you’ll be making a big contribution to their projects to conserve species and habitats, both in Hampshire and around the world. For those wildlife lovers, Marwell’s star animals include white rhino, Amur tigers, cheetahs, Humboldt penguins, Rothschild giraffes and even snow leopards (just to name a few!)

Marwell’s biggest ever exhibit, the new ‘Energy for Life’ Tropical House is now open to the public. Hot on the heels of Wild Explorers, this innovative and sustainable exhibit marks the second phase of a £17million investment programme at Marwell over the next decade, creating improved habitats for animals and more immersive experiences for guests.

Spanning two levels with fantastic vantage points, guests can experience face-to-face encounters with a diversity of wildlife and exotic plants in a tropical climate, while learning about the flow of energy through life.

If you’re loopy for lemurs, be sure to look out for Lemur Loop – A walkthrough exhibit including several species of lemurs, a great way to immerse yourself in their exciting environment. Their next exciting development will be Water and Wetlands.

Coming to the zoo in April 2019 is the exciting exhibition of BRICKOSAURS! The interactive expedition created with more than two million bricks is sure to excite families, LEGO and dinosaur enthusiasts alike. A highlight includes the largest touring LEGO brick dinosaur model ever made – a whopping eight-metre T-Rex.
