Thomas Land at Christmas

Get ready for this year’s festivities at Staffordshire-based Drayton Manor Park as its award-winning Magical Christmas event begins on Saturday 17th November and takes place on selected dates until the end of December*.

Secure your tickets early this year as the festive celebrations at the renowned attraction are set to be more magical than ever before and will encourage families visiting from the UK and beyond to really get into the spirit of Christmas.  

Families are invited to enter Europe’s only Thomas Land™ which has been beautifully adorned with sparkling decorations as far as the eye can see, not to mention the accompanying festive music so visitors can fully immerse themselves in the ultimate fairy-tale setting. Based on the popular Thomas & Friends™ books and children’s TV show, this themed area becomes the ultimate winter wonderland, with guaranteed snow showers.

Drayton Manor Park’s Magical Christmas recently received an award for the Best Tourism Experience of the Year in the Enjoy Staffordshire Awards, so visitors can be assured of a wonderful day out to make those precious memories last a lifetime.

Father Christmas and his elves will also be in attendance, welcoming families and their little ones to his grotto at the Castle of Dreams with a special Christmas present for everyone**.

To add to the festivities, there will also be a spellbinding firework display every evening for guests to enjoy, sweet treats, mince pies and delicious mulled wine for mum and dad to keep the winter frost at bay, not to mention a meet and greet with Father Christmas’ reindeers at the park’s 15-acre Zoo.

With so much on offer, guests may wish to extend their Christmas visit and stay over in the 4 Star Drayton Manor Hotel and experience the magic all over again the next day! A Stay & Play package includes an overnight stay, breakfast and tickets to enter the theme park and enjoy Magical Christmas, including a complimentary visit to see Father Christmas in the Castle of Dreams.***
