When George and Vera Bryan opened the gates of Drayton Manor on Easter 1950, it was home to a few children’s rides and some boats on the lake. It grew steadily over the next few decades and in 1973 their son Colin took over, growing the theme park to what it is today: a home of big, thrilling rides and countless attractions for all the family.
Alongside a series of high-profile rides that are acknowledged as some of the best in the business, Drayton Manor has also established Thomas Land, home of all things Thomas the Tank Engine. Set in 6,000 square metres of gorgeous parkland, Thomas Land features rides, exhibitions and interactive exhibits to immerse you in the world of Sodor. There are even hotels to make a weekend of your trip, and a camping and caravanning site. There are tonnes of seasonal events too so check out the website and you could make your visit extra special.
