About Drayton Manor
Surrounded by almost 300 acres of lakes and parkland, Drayton Manor theme park has some of England's most thrilling rides and exciting attractions. Be sure to experience Apocalypse, the world's first stand-up tower drop ride, or go one further and jump on board Shockwave, Europe's only stand-up rollercoaster. And if you don't mind getting wet, then try out Stormforce 10, recently voted the best water ride in the country.
Drayton Manor is not only for thrill seekers, however; for those with little ones, there's a packed schedule of family entertainment all-day long, from the Pirate Adventure, the Drunken Barrels ride, or any number of live shows that take place in the park's many live theatres.
Alongside the theme park, there's plenty more to see and do, from Drayton Manor Zoo - home to over a hundred species from around the world - and the Dinosaurland exhibition, to an array of museums, shops, cafes, bars and restaurants scattered around the park.
If that all seems like too much to tackle in one day, fret not. The four-star 150-bedroom Drayton Manor Hotel has executive rooms, presidential suites for a good night's rest, and 15 Thomas & Friends rooms for the kids.
