Attraction Information

Home to hundreds of exotic animals and tonnes of activities, Drusillas was rated Europe’s best small zoo!

Say hello to meerkats, llamas, pandas, penguins and loads more! The park is committed to conservation values and wants to share that through their Keeper for the Day experience: a chance for animal-mad kids to shadow a keeper and learn to clean, feed and care for their newfound friends. You can even get 'nose-to-nose' with nature on one of their walk-through exhibits: Lemurland and Lory Landing.

Wait, but that’s not all! The park also has several themed play areas, including Go Wild!, Go Bananas!, Amazon Adventure, and everyone’s favourite Hello Kitty’s Secret Garden. Two thrilling rides - Flying Cheetahs and Hippopotamus await at Go Safari! There you can also hop on the Safari Express train and explore the whole zoo. Still want more fun? Time to get splashed at Get Wet! and try the Rainforest Carousel  - the 1st of its kind in the UK.

Wonderful Family Memories Made 5 out of 5 stars

We visit Drusillas a couple of times a year and always have so much fun! My three children (2, 4 and 8) love seeing the animals and spend hours in the play park. There are rides which rarely have queues to get on and you can go on as many times as you want included in the entry price! My girls particularly loved the water splash pad this summer and we were lucky enough to visit on a day when Paw Patrol were there so we got to say hi to them too!


Fun for all the family! 5 out of 5 stars

We always love coming to Drusillas, we never run out of things to do! Our family is animal crazy, and Drusillas' zoo never disappoints. Not only are there hundreds of beautiful animals to see, but there are plenty of opportunities to learn about the different species on show. There are heaps of informative educational signs along the zoo route as well as lots of fun and interactive learning activities. My niece and nephew always insist on visiting Lemurland first, they love being able to get so close to the animals! On top of a fantastic zoo there is also an incredible play area for children and a good choice of restaurants with lots of healthy options - we do love bringing our picnics in the summer though! I highly recommend Drusillas Park, fun for all the family – definitely worth a visit.


Wow! What a Park! 5 out of 5 stars

We always have a wonderful day out at Drusillas Park with our two children! We are so lucky to have such a great attraction in Sussex. The lovely animals are well cared for and there are fun features where the kids can get a closer look at the animals like the meerkat tunnel. Our children spend hours in the huge adventure play areas and the kids rides not to mention the splash pad in the Summer. I definitely recommend this place for a brilliant family day out :)


Fantastic Day Out! 5 out of 5 stars

A FANTASTIC day out for ALL the family. Not only are there lots of animals to see but there are also lots of educational interactive exhibits along the way which my kids loved. And if that isn't enough, the huge play areas (indoors and outdoors) and rides made sure that the kids were entertained for the whole day. We'll definitely be getting an annual membership so we can come again and again. Will be recommending you to everyone.


Great Value For Money 3 out of 5 stars

This is a great day out for kids! At first, the ticket prices look steep however, they include so much in the price including a very well thought out adventure play area. They also have rides there suitable for toddlers as well as slightly older children (I'd probably say up to around 10). If you are disabled and in receipt of PIP, take this with you as you get carer tickets free which is very helpful if one parent is disabled or if the child is etc. The park is extremely easy to get around as well, and we spent around 6 hours there without little one getting bored thanks to the variety of things there. The Meerkats are just adorable and we had to try and get little one away from them!
