Drusillas Park, Berwick

4.4
#2 of 94 in Outdoors in East Sussex
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.

  • This was a brilliant day out. Well laid out, lots to see and do. Very informative as well as being fun and interactive. The kids loved it. Food was great and plenty of choice. Brilliant play areas. I just wish we lived closer so that we could go more often.
  • I have been coming here for a while, and it has changed lots! Loads of great new rides and although it is ideal for young children, I still enjoyed it! The shops are great and the animals are all happy and well cared for. At most zoos the cages are too small, but at Drusilla's there was not one animal that looked sad or had a cage that was too small. I recommend it.
  • Went here on a rainy Bank Holiday Monday in early May 2017. Despite the torrential downpours we still had a brilliant time with the two children, aged 5 and 3. The rides were just right and fun enough for the kids to enjoy without them being too overwhelmed. The sun came out after lunch and it made the animals come out of their habitats. The train ride around the animal park was fun and just about long enough to keep the kids entertained without saying they were bored. Lovely park, clean and varied facilities, children's play areas were fantastic and the food at the cafe was reasonably priced and tasted pretty good. We will definitely be returning in the summer and I would highly recommend a visit.
  • Very child friendly with lots of small cuddly type animals as well as lots of activity options available. However do not expect the big wild animals you need to go elsewhere for those. Food choices are also limited and although reasonable for the type of venue could prove costly for a large group, a picnic in the picnic area may be a better choice :-)
  • Great place for family. If travelling with disabled on Dla/PIP carer goes free. Bring award letters with u. Was a bit of a wait for rides but not too long. So many animals to see. Food was great and fairly priced.
