In the summer we came to Tilgate Park for the day. It's a lovely place with a great adventure park. It has Go Ape and a Smith and Western restaurant. There's a massive lake where you can fish and plenty of space for picnics and games. The parking is expensive though. Well worth a visit.

Tilgate Park is a lovely place for residents of Crawley and Gatwick area to go to, to chill out, to relax and get away from the urban environment. Get away from the noise and dirt and general pollution. Love place for picnics. Adults will appreciate the quiet walks and children will love the place to let off steam and play.

Having been to Tilgate park, come rain or shine, many times, I can confirm this is a wonderful place to take children.

Brilliant park with loads to do and tonnes of space. Feed the ducks, walk around the lake or go off the beaten track. Play area with slides and climbing frames. My only issue with the playpark is there isn't enough for little ones i.e. Toddlers. Great cafe at the walled garden. The animal centre is showing signs of being updated... More

Took the kids for a walk, I didn't realise how big the park is. Looking forward to the summer and another visit.

This is always a firm family favourite for us. A nice walk around the lake (wellies advisable if there has been rain recently!) followed by a play in the lake, a brew from the cafe and a wander around the nature centre (that used to be free but isn't any more). We have done Go Ape at Tilgate and the... More

Loads for the family here. If you find yourself in Mid Sussex, give it a visit. The animal park is fantastic value for money, with a great group of people working there.

As abit of a big kid I'm a fan of anything abit cheesy, small entry fee for the farm but will kill an hour or so! Lots to see there so worth the expenditure. The park itself is huge, has a large play area, lake and is popular with dog walkers. Depends what you're after but pleasant way to spend... More

Hadn't been here for a while and was surprised to see how much work is being done to enclosures. This does actually have an impact on visiting at the moment as there seemed less animals to see. Think it will be lovely when finished though and is still a bargain at £2.50 an adult. Our granddaughter loved the meerkats and... More
