  1. Drusillas is a small but interesting zoo which is very close to where I live so I bought a annual pass so I am able to take my 1 year old regularly to see the animals. We have been a number of times and it never seems the same. There is a wonderful outdoor play area at the end for all ages and various other attractions including soft play, a water area, Thomas the Tank Engine train ride and various shops and places to get food and drink. I do think that it is quite expensive for a day out if you have a large family, but the annual pass is good value for money. You can use your Tesco Clubcard Days out vouchers for daily entry which could help.
