Local and exotic animals are neighbors at Drusillas Park, where you'll also find a variety of hands-on activities. Although the animal population of the zoo grows every year, the zoo's policy is to house only small creatures. This policy is meant to appeal to the younger children who frequent the zoo for its educational activities and adventure play area with swings, slides, and an indoor soft play center. A large variety of primates populate the trees within the zoo: Capuchin monkeys, Colobus monkeys, macaques, and Lar gibbons.

  • Wonderful outing. Enjoyable for the whole family. Enclosures are clean and Animals are all well cared for. Staff seem very dedicated to their work. I would suggest membership to those of you who are able to visit a few times a year. Works out cheaper. For those of you wanting to have a close encounter ! BOOK MONTHS IN ADVANCE!
  • Had a really lovely day at Drusillas. The animals are so well looked after. Having been to numerous zoos and wildlife parks and seeing the animals in small cages, looking unhappy, it was refreshing to see the animals in large, well kept areas. The play areas are amazing for the kids. My 3yr old was disappointed at not being able to play in the water park but it was pretty cold. We are going to definitely return in the summer.
  • An amazing place to be with the family. Staff are very friendly. They have a wide selection of animals that are maintained well and kept clean at all times. The facilities are very tidy and clean. Has a few places to eat with reasonable prices. Has a smoking area so smokers are allocated to these places which stops smoking in other parts of the zoo. Super super super will definitly visit again. Worth it!!!!
  • We have visited Drusillas on several occasions and the children always have a great time. The restaurant food is good, and servings are generous and reasonably priced. The animals appear to be well cared for and the park is clean and tidy. The play areas are also fantastic. The only downside is the price - £80.00 for a day out for a family of four seems steep to me, especially as the 'family ticket' for four is exactly the same price as paying four normal tickets! This was more expensive than the last time we visited (summer 2017) and the only changed have been the two new 'theme park' style rides, which I would not judge as justifying the price rise. On the whole a good trip, and I would recommend it, but we regretted not checking the prices before we went.
  • So much to see and do. Will keep the children occupied all day with lots of fun learning. Excellent food with a wide variety of choice at very reasonable prices. Good value for money compared to other attractions. A season ticket is exceptional value as you will want to return time and time again. Predominantly for the ages up to 13 I would say but fun fun fun for all the family.
