From ring-tailed lemurs to majestic giraffes, and curious meerkats to stunning snow leopards, Marwell Zoo stretches across 140 acres of beautiful Hampshire countryside and is the home to a fascinating array of endangered and exotic species. Visitors can enjoy a range of daily animal talks and feeds including coatis, meerkats and Humboldt penguins. Take part in Marwell’s Explorers Trail collecting stamps of your favourite animals and discover the five adventure playgrounds that Marwell Zoo has to offer.

The Great Brick Safari, an Interactive LEGO® brick experience exclusive to the zoo, runs 1st August until 1st October. This brand new event is a winding trail made up of 80 life-like animal sculptures with a free spotter’s guide and hands-on building activities in the Great Brick Building Zone. So, with all the animal enclosures, playgrounds, trains and indoor picnic area, there’s plenty to occupy and educate your little ones for an entire day.
