We had a fantastic day at Drusillas! Perfect location and lots to see. Really nice picnic area which was convenient for kids. It was also great value for money! We went with our 2 kids who are 2 and 4, but it is perfect for all ages! Really enjoyable day!

I've visited Drusilla's quite a number of times over the past 8 years and can highly recommend it. It's excellent value for money and advance tickets can be bought on-line for a discount. There are lots of great interactive displays for the younger children to get involved with, and lots of play-park facilities for the kids to burn off some... More

I've been going to Drusillas as long as I can remember from being a kid right through to being the parent and now being the early grandparent! It's improved over the years and whilst it still feels the same that's because it has a winning formula. It's fun but educational for the kids and adults alike. Nice coffee house and... More

We first visited Drusillas when my son was 2, and now 7 years later, both children still find it a great day out. The information on the animals is fun but informative, and there are lots of interactive activities that the children love and can get involved with. The restaurant and snack bars are clean and bright, and offer a... More

The animals are cramped , sad and not overly healthy. These places are there to make Money and nothing more. Yes some of the staff really care about those creatures but it's Not enough to compensate for the sadness /vibe there. We all left feeling drained and tired . The energy there is not a positive one. Even our 6... More

Drusillas, Guest Relations Manager at Drusillas Park, responded to this review

We are saddened to read this so-called ‘review’ from someone who is obviously against the idea of zoos as a whole, rather than Drusillas in particular. The welfare of our animals is of paramount importance to us and comments such as ‘cramped, sad and not overly healthy’ when describing our animals are both misleading and unfounded. Drusillas’ animal department has... More

For children under 10 thus place us truly amazing, so many interactive things for them to do. Then there are all the animals and play park areas. We have been several times with our grandsons, who both have a yearly ticket which us excellent value for money. Rain or shine, endless hours if fun & entertainment, especially at this time... More

A charming place to visit with the grandchildren! Drusillas is quaint well thought out and avoids the tackiness of similar venues. It is a good mix of an interesting showcase if animals and cute activities for smaller kids. The animal enclosures are reassuringly natural and there is good information about each species. After 3 hours strolling around we visited the... More

We had a fantastic day at the park, lots for all ages of children to do and see. The only thing we wasnt happy with was the price. You pay the same amount for an adult ( as for the adults all we did was stand and watch !! ) I think the adults shouldnt have to pay the same... More

My daughter Neve had an exceptionally enjoyable day at Drusillas being a 'Keeper for the Day'. Eva, the keeper, was brilliant throughout and I highly recommend this experience for any kids - especially 10 year old girls! Excellent day all round!!!
