Let Drayton Manor make your Christmas magical 

Join us for Drayton’s Magical Christmas in Thomas Land as we recapture the magic of Christmas here at Drayton Manor.

With our spectacular decorations throughout the park, festive music, over 21 rides and attractions and the chance to meet Father Christmas in his very own ‘Castle of Dreams’ this really will make your Christmas experience with us one to remember!  

Plus, everyone knows, Father Christmas can’t travel without his reindeers so all the animals in the zoo will be making them feel very welcome as they rest and prepare for their long night of delivering millions of presents.  Make sure you pop by and say hello to them before they leave on Christmas Eve.

Drayton’s Magical Christmas also includes the following:

 • Live shows in Thomas Land with the Fat Controller and his friends 

• Snow falls at least three times a day in Thomas Land!

• Christmas tree light show throughout the day

• Ice skating rink*

• Magical fireworks behind the ‘Castle of Dreams’ for the whole family to enjoy!

• The Polar Express in our 4D Cinema, a truly enchanting experience for all

• Chance to meet Father Christmas himself in the ‘Castle of Dreams’ (pre-booking essential)

• Enjoy our live show in the ‘Castle of Dreams’

• Plus much more magic and fun.
