Thomas The Tank Engine

Drayton Manor To Bring Smiles This Summer

Drayton Manor To Bring Smiles This Summer

Be ready for smiles this summer as Drayton Manor Park plans six weeks of Summer Sensation from Wednesday 25th July to Monday 3rd September at the Staffordshire-based attraction. 

With all to be revealed in the lead up to the summer months, keep your eyes peeled for brand new family events, a mix of money-saving offers and competitions as well as special surprises for the whole family to enjoy. 



England’s most excellent steam railway experience, the East Lancashire Railway, is calling all little engineers to join Thomas the Tank Engine for a full day out unlike any other.

With rides behind Thomas and unlimited travel on steam and diesel trains along 12 miles of track through the stunning Irwell Valley there’s so much for families to do. They can meet The Fat Controller, see performances by Rusty and Dusty, Sodor’s cheeky station sweepers and watch re-enactments of classic Thomas stories. There will also be Thomas themed activities in the Imagination Station including table top games, colouring and Thomas films, along with magic shows, circus workshops and face painting.
