Drusillas Park

About

Make memories that last and enjoy a great family day out at the award-winning Drusillas Park. Drusillas offers a loving home to over one hundred exotic animals, including sloths, meerkats, monkeys, penguins, red pandas, giant anteaters and more!

However, animals are only half the fun! Make like a monkey and swing, jump and climb your way across Drusillas large adventure play areas, get lost in Mungo’s Maze and take to the skies on a whole host of amazing rides including the Hippopotobus, the Flying Cheetahs and the Hello Kitty Hopper ride to mention just a few. There’s even a chance to grab your swimming costume and splash about on the Get Wet! splash pad. 

When you fancy a break from all the running around, sit back and relax as you journey deep into the heart of the zoo on the Safari Express train. 
Make sure you explore the brand-new attraction for 2020- Jurassic Jungle! Take a walk back in time and discover a lost world of Jurassic giants. Get ready to ROAR and CLAW your way through the incredible prehistoric walk-through.

Drusillas also offers great disabled access and recently opened a Changing Places toilet as well as supporting the Sunflower Lanyard hidden disabilities scheme. For full details regarding accessibility please view the access statement on the Drusillas website. 

Drusillas are champions for conservation and as part of their Conservation in Action programme they are currently fundraising for and supporting The Sloth Conservation Foundation
