Award winning Drusillas Park is widely regarded as the best small zoo in the country and is fast becoming recognised as one of the most popular places for children in the south east of England.

With over 130 animal species in naturalistic environments there is plenty to enthral everyone from the youngest to the oldest visitor. Animals include the popular meerkats where children can climb inside a dome to get really close to the animals, as well as penguins, otters, beavers, lemurs, gibbons, a range of monkeys and a walk-through bat enclosure to name but a few.

However, animals are only half the Drusillas experience. Playland, including Monkey Kingdom, has masses of climbing, sliding, jumping and swinging fun thoughtfully separated for different age groups. Indoors there is Amazon Adventure, a state-of-the-art soft play complex, as well as the Toddler Village and Toy Stables which are a hit with the under 6s. Plus, NEW FOR 2007 – Thomas the Tank Engine, Annie and Clarabel, will be steaming into Drusillas from Easter offering unlimited train rides around the park 362 days a year!

In addition to this there is also the Zoolympics Challenge, Animal Spotter Books and Stamping Trail, Jungle Adventure Golf, Panning for Gold, Penguin Plunge, Vertical Limit, the Discovery Centre and Wacky Workshop, Explorers Restaurant, Oasis Café, five shops plus an interesting and varied event diary which runs throughout the year.

Located just off the A27 at Alfriston, Drusillas is open from 10am daily. For more information, please telephone 01323 874100 or visit
