The ultimate summer of fun at Drayton Manor Park!

Thursday, 29th June 2017

FOR 67 years, Tamworth’s very own Drayton Manor Park has been the backdrop to millions of fun family memories and opened its gates to over 50 million visitors.

With the school holidays on the horizon, the park is set to welcome young and old, from near and far for a good 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!

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.
