For the animal loving family: Marwell Zoo, Hampshire


© Comstock
Are you the type of family who loves all creatures great and small? If so, look no further than Marwell Zoo in Winchester, Hampshire.

As well as exploring the whole park and discovering fun facts about everything from mini beasts to the biggest cats, you can also take the plunge and either become a zoo keeper for a day or book a one-on-one animal encounter.

To become a fully fledged keeper, participants spend the entire day shadowing the professionals, while the face-to-face experiences last for thirty minutes and are usually held in the afternoon.
