Details

Step away from the routine and step into a Summer of Fun with Drayton Manor Park, and experience summer as it should be - where imagination is king, excitement fills your heart and you fill your boots with ice cream!

For 67 years, Drayton Manor Park has been the backdrop to millions of fun family memories and opened its gates to over 50 million visitors. During the school holidays, the park is set to welcome young and old, from near and far for a great value, memorable day out. The arrival of new animals in the 15-acre Zoo and a brand new ride in Europe’s only Thomas Land™, means there’s never been a better time to visit.

What’s more, with a fantastic 4 for £80 ticket offer, valid on any age combination when booked in advance online or via the call centre, meaning your family fun day out is more affordable than ever.

Animal lovers can head to the tranquil haven that is the park’s extensive Zoo and meet the new arrivals including Kit and Leo two twin baby Cotton-Top Tamarins, Red Pandas Tika and Pema and the baby Tapir, Obie! Home to over 700 animals of 144 different species from all over the world, visitors can spot animals big or small at Drayton Manor Park Zoo and learn all about the exciting conservation projects that the Zoo is actively involved in.

With over 25 rides and attractions, The Island of Sodor at Drayton Manor Park’s Thomas Land is the ultimate destination for little ones. Home to firm family favourites such as Bertie Bus, Harold’s Helicopter Tour and Cranky’s Tower Drop there is plenty to explore. Earlier this year, the beloved Thomas & Friends™ character ’James’ got his very own Red Balloon ride, where families can head up, up and away in a balloon over Thomas Land.
