Santa Paws is coming to town: Father Christmas and his huskies arrive at Drusillas!

Jingle all the way to Drusillas Zoo Park, where a magical Christmas experience awaits visitors from now until 23rd December.  Watch little eyes twinkle with wonder as they meet Santa snuggled in his cosy cottage, cuddle up to adorable huskies, join in with singing reindeer, and indulge in delicious seasonal treats by a giant Christmas tree.

T’is the season to be jolly, and only Scrooge himself could fail to feel festive strolling around the Park draped in twinkling lights, with life sized snowmen and nutcracker dolls, a forest of real Christmas trees, snow-capped theming, and a glistening 24ft tree of lights as the centrepiece.

Families can make this Christmas experience extra enchanting by adding in a moment with the big man himself. Father Christmas is waiting to sprinkle some merry magic on your little ones in Drusillas’ cosy Christmas grotto, packed with nostalgic decoration details to make your festive photos even more special!

The highly in-demand Santa experience includes a personal one-to-one with Santa, photo opportunity and a magical Christmas gift. Tickets for Santa’s grotto are now available via their online booking system.

Visitors will have snow much fun meeting beautiful, friendly huskies in the Park’s Ice Cave, for a nose-to-nose experience to remember. These gorgeous arctic dogs will be greeting visitors in the Events Arena; and you’d be barking mad to miss them!

Back by popular demand, visitors can also enjoy a jolly ol’ sing-a-along with our fun singing reindeer trio in the Park’s Events Arena – listen to the warm, friendly voices singing some of your favourite festive tunes right from their stable.

Making memories is at the heart of everything Drusillas does and capturing them this holiday is so much fun with the many festive photo opportunities around the Park: climb inside a giant present, ride Santa’s sleigh, and get lost in the Christmas tree forest – not forgetting a seasonal selfie in front of the magnificent 24ft tree of lights.

And, with memory-making in mind, Drusillas offers a range of unique gift ideas, to treat your loved ones to unforgettable experiences this year. Popular gifts include gift vouchers for Annual Membership – the ultimate package of 362 days of zoo, play, and rides, zoo keeper for the day, animal close encounters, zoo photography days, and even spider phobia courses.
