A truly magical Christmas

This winter, there’s plenty to do at Drayton Manor, especially for young children. Drayton’s Magical Christmas is a great day out for the entire family this festive season. The magical surroundings and festive atmosphere make this a go-to spot for a Christmas day out this year.

The event runs from the 16th November to the 31st December and includes access to Europe’s only Thomas Land, which is full of snow and sparkles for Drayton’s Magical Christmas. You’ll experience live shows, festive parades, 4D cinema showing Ice Age: A Mammoth Christmas and of course – Father Christmas.

A series of parades and Christmas tree light shows will keep you entertained throughout the day as you wonder the park. Likewise, animal talks in the 15-acre zoo and stocked shelves full of toys and gifts in Europe’s largest Thomas & Friends shop. And all of this before a unique firework display over the lake gives you a wonderful send off.  

Father Christmas is a busy man at this time of year, and can’t be at Drayton’s Magical Christmas every day. So if you plan to see him, schedule your visit with these dates to ensure you meet him.

Rides & Attractions

Drayton Manor Park is the perfect choice for a family day out, with some of Europe’s biggest, scariest and wettest rides and attractions, including:

  • Apocalypse - the world’s first stand-up tower drop.
  • Shockwave - Europe’s only stand-up rollercoaster.
  • Stormforce 10 - ‘the best water ride in the country’ (Daily Express).
