Wrap up warm and get closer to the wonders of the natural world with a magical visit to Marwell Zoo this winter. Meet hundreds of exotic and endangered animals from Amur tigers and snow leopards to meerkats and penguins, run wild in their five adventure playgrounds and spread some festive cheer!

He will settle into his comfy chair at festive scenes outside Café Graze and inside the Gift Shop ready to say hello and receive your Christmas letters. Don’t forget to download and print out their Christmas letter template ahead of your visit to personalise and post in Santa’s post boxes, either outside Café Graze or at the Gift Shop.

You may also see him on one of the buggies around the zoo throughout the day so make sure to keep a look out and give him your best wave!

There will also be some magical decorations and festive scenes around the park from an enchanting princess carriage to Santa’s sleigh and flying reindeer, perfect to capture a special photograph for the family album (from Wednesday 1).

Join in with the Nordic Gnomes Hide and Seek competition to be in with a chance of winning a special goodie bag! Can you spot all eight including Jerome the Golden Gnome?

Enjoy festive food and drink options at the zoo; cosy up with a hot chocolate or treat your little ones to some Christmas delights, perfect for warming up on a winter’s day.

They’ll be spreading some festive cheer on their social media channels too with their popular 12 Days of Christmas giveaway, and more. Dress up in your Christmas jumpers and share your selfies from around the zoo with them for a chance to win a Christmas hamper.

Marwell Zoo are a conservation charity so simply by visiting you’ll be giving something back this Christmas and directly helping their amazing projects to conserve habitats and species in the UK and around the world.

Festive Fun at Marwell activities are available to all members and non-members included in the standard ticket price. Book your zoo visit online seven days ahead only.
