Christmas at Marwell Zoo, Winchester

November 16, 2019 - December 24, 2019

Christmas at Marwell

Christmas at Marwell is always magical, and this year it’s going to be extra special as 2019 marks the 10th anniversary of this wonderful Christmas event for families in Winchester.

With a Wonderland theme, there will be refreshments fit for the Queen of Hearts, plus all manner of topsy-turvy delights! During the day, families can take part in a Cheshire Cat trail, or if you’re visiting for the evening experience you’ll be able to hop aboard the illuminated Wonderland train!

Join the elves in Marwell Hall, listen to stories with Mother Christmas, create your own magical elf door and of course, meet Father Christmas himself!

General zoo admission tickets do not cover entry into the Christmas at Marwell event and pre-booking is essential. Christmas event tickets will be on sale from 23 September (9 September for annual member bookings).

Tickets: £25.50 per adult, £29 per child, £15.50 per toddler and £7.50 per baby under 1 year.
