Marwell Zoo

From July 20 to August 31, every day ticket purchased for Marwell Zoo will include a free seven-day return ticket. When you go through admissions, you’ll be given a coupon for your next visit.

So, if it’s too hot, too wet, or you have little legs and can’t make it around the entire 140-acre property in one day, you can take your time and return another day to accomplish everything you missed the first time.

There are now twice as many reasons to visit their magnificent animals and stunning surroundings, whether you’re planning a week of fun days away from home or ‘staycationing’ in the neighbourhood. Find out more about Marwell Zoo on their website here.
