#2 of 87 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.

  • My husband & I went to Drusillas last week. It’s quite a few years since we were last there, when our boys were much younger, but it was great to go back and see all the things that bought back really...  more »

  • Great place for younger kids. Wet park is great on a hot day. Playground has a big climbing frame with different ways to go and slides. A sunken trampoline under cover. And lots more. An indoor soft play. The zoo route is really fun and educational at the same time. Train ride. Hello Kitty rides and a cool hippo and flying cheetah's. Nice indoor self serve restaurant. Outdoor picnic bench area. It's a great day out for the little ones.
  • A wonderful place to visit. We took our two grandchildren aged 6 and 7 and spent over 5 hours we only left as we had tickets for a circus. A lovely clean zoo with very helpful staff and plenty to do. Would recommend a visit at any time and we will return in the future. We'll done to all that made our visit very enjoyable.
  • Had a great time, plenty for all ages to do. The zoo has excellent views of all the animals who seem to be happy. The play park was very good as well. They had a splash park, soft play, an area for under 6 children and an area for older children. The food is priced higher than a high street place, but nowhere near as high as most theme parks. It's decent quality as well and the portions are enough. Very happy to spend the day there with grandparents and children and would definitely go again.
  • Amazing place for young families. Lots and lots of weird and wonderful animals (monkeys, camels, birds, all sorts), a hands-on farm bit where you can stroke donkeys, goats and others, a massive indoor soft play, huge outdoor play area, a wet splash area, some rides for young kids (like gentle fairground rides), plenty of places for food... And the yearly pass is amazingly good value- we go fairly regularly with our 2 and there's always loads to do. Love it.
  • For the under 6 age bracket families this place is great. Not to big, grated towards children and only children its an engrossing day out. Note that 8 years plus may get bored quickly. Animals, rides, mazes etc. Loads of fun. Loses a start simply by being very expensive...
