Please only smoke and vape in the designated areas. These have been set up around the park for everyone’s comfort..
If you need to leave the Park and wish to re-enter on the same day, you’ll need to get a clearly-visible hand stamp before leaving. You can get your hand stamp as you leave the Park by the exit turnstile. If you’re an Annual Member, you can use your membership cards for re-entry.
Our car park is free of charge. We do not currently have an charger for electric cars. Please note, vehicles are left at your own risk.
Mobile Network Coverage
Drusillas is situated in the middle of the beautiful East Sussex countryside, and as such has poor mobile coverage. Please make arrangements with your party accordingly.

Cashback is available (with purchase) at the Admission Gates and at most retail and catering outlets.

We only allow Assistance Dogs into the Park, although they are not permitted into our walk-through exhibits due to the stress this could cause to our animals. The walk-though exhibits include; The Bats & Sloth Cave, Lory Landing and Lemurland. All other pets, including therapy dogs are prohibited. Sorry, no kennel facilities exist. Please do not leave your dog in your vehicle whilst you visit – if we see this in our car park we will take action.
Lockers are situated in the Amazon Adventure porch and are available to hire for £1.
All our animals have very specific diets. Please respect their needs by refraining from feeding or teasing them.
In some of our areas, you will be able to pet the animals. For your own health and safety, make sure you wash your hands after contact with the animals.
If your little one goes missing, don’t panic! Report to the staff at Mungo’s Trading Post, near the train station. We have policies and procedures in place to reunite you quickly.
