Children on a leopard funfair ride at Drusillas Park, Alfriston, East Sussex


Widely regarded as the best small zoo in Europe, the award-winning Drusillas Park in East Sussex offers a fun finding-out day out for all the family.

With over one hundred different animal species, there is plenty to enthral every visitor - young or old! Come and see some amazing animals, from meerkats to sloths, to penguins, lemurs, monkeys and more.

Don’t miss out on the amazing walk-through enclosures; get nose to nose with a curious group of ring-tailed lemurs in Lemurland, then grab a nectar pot and feed the friendly flock of rainbows lorikeets in Lory Landing. Animal nuts will also love exploring the bat cave and spotting all the furry faces along the zoo route, including Oli and Diego the giant anteaters and the lovable sloths Flash and Gordon.

However, animals are only half the fun! Kids will adore all the themed adventure play areas. Watch as your little ones make like a monkey and swing, jump and climb across Go Wild!, Go Bananas! and Amazon Adventure. There’s even a chance to grab your swimming costume and splash about on the Get Wet! splash pad.

Experience the latest attraction at Drusillas- SPARK. It’s the UK’s largest immersive play experience harnessing the latest technology . See little eyes marvel in wonder as they discover a magical world where reality and technology collide, in an explosion of colour and light. Watch curious minds explore SPARK’s nine interactive games. SPARK is open at weekends and East Sussex school holidays. There is a small additional charge of £2 (£1 for Members) to experience SPARK.

Give Christopher Columbus a run for his money as you explore the African themed attraction Go Safari! Take to the skies with the Hippopotobus, speed through the air upon the back of a Flying Cheetah or journey deep into the heart of the zoo aboard the Safari Express train.

Plus, don’t miss the beautifully mesmerising Rainforest Carousel – the first of its kind in the UK! Climb upon your favourite animal and be enchanted by the wonders of the rainforest as you soar up and down on this classic ride with a captivating jungle twist.

Located just off the A27 at Alfriston, Drusillas Park is open daily from 10am. For further details please telephone 01323 874100, email info@drusillas.co.uk or visit www.drusillas.co.uk
