Wow! What a lovely afternoon we had as a family at Marwell Zoo near Winchester. It is such an easy place to reach, as it is so perfectly sign posted!
We visited Marwell Zoo for the Halloween weekend. Upon arrival we were greeted with very friendly staff and I’m very pleased to report that all staff we met that day were a real assets to Marwell; friendly, welcoming and helpful, it really made the time enjoyable.
As it was Halloween, there were loads of pumpkins plus a man dressed up as Dracula walking around for a photo opportunity if the children were brave enough!!!!! It was all very festive.
The animals we saw were just so, so adorable. It is amazing to go somewhere where you can get really close to them; I’ve never experienced anything like it and the children had such an amazing time. The whole zoo is so well looked after, clean tidy with easy access to see the animals.
The Giraffes were inside in their wonderful enclosure, which you have access to and they are so sweet. We spent around 20 minutes there watching and observing and they even came close to the barriers to see us, just such an amazing experience. Later on we spent a long time with the tigers – another memorable experience.
I would highly recommend a day out at Marwell Zoo for all the family. You won’t be disappointed with what you see and the staff are amazing, whether it is answering questions, serving coffees or helping in the shop. It’s so refreshing to go somewhere where everyone was so helpful and friendly.
Great animals and great service – I couldn’t recommend it more highly.
