#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.

  • My 2 children absolutely love Drusillas! At the end of our first visit we decided to upgrade to annual membership as the children really enjoyed it. I was very impressed we could deduct our entry ticket price off the annual membership cost which made it very attractive. The addition of the kids splash park is fantastic. The mix of seeing the animals, going on the rides, the splash/ water park, adventure playgrounds, eateries works really well. I also like the fact you can go all year round. Seeing Father Christmas last year was great and the presents given were good quality. I just had a joint birthday party for my children last weekend and I would like to thank Malcolm and the team for putting together a great birthday meal for the kids, with quality food, good variety, friendly & helpful staff and party bags as well as helping with my birthday cake. I'd thoroughly recommend this children's theme park/ zoo and look forward to returning again soon.
  • I have visited Drusillas on many occasions, with children and on my own, being an animal addict! It is extremely well laid out, informative and easy to get around. I like the large areas to eat, inside and out and the staff are so helpful. Education officer, Carla Dray, who has been at the zoo for many years is a joy to listen to as her passion and knowledge of the animals in her care is so apparent. It is fairly expensive but offers great value for money as it is such a memorable day out. Highly recommend it!!πŸ˜§πŸ’πŸ΄πŸ•·πŸ·
  • Great zoo and fun park for little kids. It’s proper area for looking all around and do activities. Friendly staffs, lovely animals. Food and souvenia are reasonable price. I definitely will come back again and again. :-)
  • Fantastic place for young children, the animals are clearly visible and the playground is HUGE! With something for all ages. Take a swimming costume for warm days. I suggest arriving early as you will want to spend the whole day but expect a bit of a wait to get in, we waited about 40 min but I think that was because peppy pig was there :) even so, well worth the wait!
  • It is quite a lot for entrance, at the time of our last visit Β£19.50, and a family of 5 Β£95. But it is great value for money. There is plenty of opportunity to spend more inside as well, you can save a lot by taking your own picnic. Tea and coffee is reasonably priced, I did not buy food from any of the concessions apart from a scrumptious bag of fresh donuts near the entrance to the Safari train platform. The adventure playground is awesome, and caters for toddlers and teenagers alike. Take your swimming stuff too, the splash pad water park is great fun and included n admission. Then of course, there are the animal to see, and a kiddies farm as well with sheep, ponies, cattle, goats, and more. The monkeys and penguins are a firm favourite, and there are reptiles to see as well. Also featured is a small theme park with modern children's rides. A great day out, get there early and stay late to get full value!
