Bring your mini monsters to Marwell Zoo this October half term for the last chance to see our larger than life brick adventure, SUPERSIZED!

The world exclusive event featuring more than two million toy bricks is on display alongside the zoo’s hundreds of exotic and endangered animals until 1 November 2020.

Featuring up to 30 models of curious real-life creatures, from sneaky predators such as the venomous blue-ringed octopus to the aptly named assassin bug, these fearsome species have been chosen for their colourful appearance in nature and unusual natural abilities. The peacock spider brick model is magnified 208 times larger than its 0.5cm size, smaller than a fingernail.

Don’t miss new sculptures on display for half term, a 1m long glaucus atlanticus, a species of poisonous sea slug, plus our competition winner’s drawing of a curious pink fairy armadillo SUPERSIZED! into a bespoke toy brick model. Our deep sea sculptures display will be lit up in the afternoon.

Marwell’s 140 acres of landscaped park is the perfect place to get closer to nature and admire the changing Autumn colours plus let your little monkeys go wild in one of the five adventure play areas including the new Okapi playground.

We look forward to seeing pictures of your Autumn adventures at Marwell on our social media channels so don’t forget to tag us, whether you are discovering our animals in the crisp fresh air, meeting our fearsome SUPERSIZED! creatures, enjoying a cosy hot chocolate from Café Graze or catching crunchy red leaves as they fall from the trees!

Please book online in advance.
