A Day at Drusillas

There is oodles of fun to be had at Drusillas Park, which is widely regarded as one of the best days out in Sussex for families.

With so many things to do, you can spend hours and hours exploring in the zoo, going wild in the play areas and letting your hair down on the exciting kid's rides.

The Drusillas Park App offers everything you need to plan the perfect Drusillas day in the palm of your hand. Features include digital ticket wallet, interactive map, ride times, event times, animal feeding times, personalised planner, and special offers. Download for free here.
