Drayton Manor Theme Park

Drayton Manor Theme Park

Drayton Manor Theme Park is one of the UK’s most popular family attractions with over one million visitors a year. Drayton Manor was first opened to the public in 1950. Today, set in approximately 280 acres of beautiful woodland and countryside, the family owned and run Drayton Manor Theme Park features some of the biggest, wettest and scariest rides around, including Shock-wave, G-force, Maelstrom, and Apocalypse, as well as a 15-acre zoo, the hugely popular Thomas Land™ attraction, and a 4D Cinema.

The park also has an on-site four star hotel. The four star 150 bedroom Drayton Manor Hotel features 15 Thomas & Friends™ rooms, as well as two bars and two restaurants.

The on-site restaurant, The Grill Inn, is open to non-visitors and visitors from 12.00pm – 10.00pm daily, ensuring people are never stuck for a choice of fine food and drink. For more information visit www.thegrillinn.co.uk

The nearest canal is Trent Mersey canal at Fazeley junction. There are moorings nearby and it's just a short walk to the park.

Disability Access Information

Access Guide for Guests with Special Needs \ We do our very best to try and help those guests that are unable to access the rides by the standard entrances by offering the use of the park’s access band facility. \ This system has been designed to enable parties to swap the carer who is accompanying and assisting the service user onto the ride. \ The system addresses the issue that we experienced in previous years with excessive queuing at exits which prevented guests who required this service from being able to receive the full benefits of this facility, leaving guests waiting for an excessive amount of time with larger queues at the attractions exits than the conventional queuing system which did not help those guests on the autistic spectrum.   \ We have found that the on an average day our guests are able to get onto 8 to 10 rides, so we introduced the access band system to reflect this and keep the system fair to all. \ In keeping with our flexible approach we would recommend anyone with individual needs or specific requirements to please phone or e-mail our Guest Services department and one of our team will assist you further. 0844 472 1960       guestservices@draytonmanor.co.uk \ Click Here for terms and conditions and to have a look at one of our Carer Cards.
