Keeping your little ones entertained on a budget can be a challenge but Drayton Manor Park has a great value solution that’s guaranteed to be a hit with parents and toddlers alike.

The family owned and run park is once again offering its Adult and Toddler entry tickets. Priced at just £20, the ticket grants entry to one adult and one child aged three and under and is available Monday – Friday during Staffordshire term time*.

This incredible offer means you can have a fun day out at the fraction of the original cost and enjoy the fun and thrills of the park without the queues and hustle and bustle of the holidays.

There’s plenty for little ones to enjoy at Drayton Manor Park, from the 15 acre zoo which is home to a whole host of exciting animals, to the 4D cinema which will be delighting fans with showings of Yogi Bear throughout 2016. Not to mention Europe’s only Thomas Land™ which boasts over 25 rides and attractions, including Sodor Airport and Winston’s Whistle-Stop Tour which offers an amazing aerial view the whole family can enjoy.

Little adventurers can also enjoy the park’s latest addition, the Tamarin Trail. A walk through attraction featuring eight new enclosures housing a variety of species, including the White Lipped Tamarin, Red Handed Tamarin, Emperor Tamarin, Cotton Top Tamarin and the Common Marmoset. Get nose-to-nose with the ‘moustached’ marmosets and enjoy strolling through the beautiful planted gardens.
