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.

A fantastic day for my daughter's 9th birthday present. Zookeeper for the Day is a truly memorable experience. A wonderful day from start to finish. She got so close to so many animals and was made to... more »
We were pleasantly surprised by the number of things to see at Drusillas. It's well laid out so although there's lots to see, it's not spread out which makes it easy to get around. It was busy when we... more »
Drusillas is a really good day out for families - a zoo and an adventure playground. The animanls look well-kept in specifically designed areas, few cages to be seen and some not enclosed at all, . Th... more »
Has areas for a wide range of age groups, from a Hello Kitty area to a Thomas train ride to an adventure play park, and of course the wonderful animals! There is plenty of space for wheelchair access. The food is better than average for the genre too, though I wouldn't call it healthy. Coffee is Starbucks. I've rated it a 4* not a 5* mainly because of the cost. A family of four is around £75 entry.
on entering the park it seemed very busy but with the way it is all laid out and directed meant that there wasn't any hustle and bustle. the park is well kept and animals all look very well looked after. after working our way through the zoo part of the park we found ourselves at the park which is brilliant and caters for all ages. 'get wet' was hugely appreciated as it was the hottest day of the year and the kids (and adults) appreciated the cooling off. once dried off, fed and watered Thomas the Tank Engine and Hello Kitty land were enjoyed and we found the Explorers Lagoon so we again got changed for a dip in the shallow pool to cool off for the drive home. a great day enjoyed by all.
Really great place to take the kids. You pay one entry fee and can take the kids on anything, as many times as you like. We did the Thomas ride and the Hello Kitty rides at least twice. It's also great that they have so many animals, plus a water play area. Something for everyone.
Small but perfectly formed. A great little zoo coupled with the kind of adventure play areas (indoors and out) your kids dream about. Food isn't a ripoff like many theme parks and the annual membership for unlimited entry is very reasonable.
A fun day out, with quite a lot to do and recent investment really showed. Quite pricey but you can use clubcard vouchers which were £6 a person at the time of writing. Good food selection and we found the fast food we bought to be really good quality. We spent five hours there in the end, doing the zoo, food and the outdoor play. There is a lot in the zoo with lots of staff around and various activities including feeding birds, watching animals being fed and little observation areas for the kids in some areas. Also a zoo Olympics with activities along the way. All good fun. Minor points were that indoor play area seating could do with expanding and more guidance needed on front gate as most people queued for one turnstile so we felt guilty legitimately walking to the other open one that people obviously thought was for members only (that one was on the other side of it). Worth getting there early as we do, as previous experience with overflow parking was a very muddy car!
