Drayton Manor Theme Park, near Tamworth, Staffordshire has scooped the Best UK Attraction for Children accolade at this year’s Group Leisure Awards – for the eighth time and the second consecutive year!

The family owned and run attraction picked up the award last night (Wednesday 21st October) at the Group Leisure Awards Dinner and Ceremony, which took place at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel.

Every year readers of leading travel magazine, Group Leisure, are asked to vote for their best attractions based on their experiences as a group travel organiser. The guidelines for the Best Attraction for Children award state that the winner should be popular with families and school parties and may have impressed due to its educational facilities as well as its ability to entertain children. The award highlights the park’s ongoing dedication to providing the best experience possible.

William Bryan, Managing Director of Drayton Manor Theme Park, said: “We are delighted to have won this award again and I would like to thank the readers of Group Leisure for voting for us.

“It’s a real testament to the team here at Drayton Manor. We work extremely hard to ensure that we maintain our goal, which has always been to provide an amazing day out for our visitors. This is the eighth time we have received this award from Group Leisure Magazine since 2004 and we’ve won 10 overall; this one is every bit as important to us as the first.”

Drayton Manor is set to end its 2015 season with a spectacular War of the Worlds themed fireworks display (Friday 30th October, Saturday 31st October and Sunday 1st November).  Plus the park’s popular Magical Christmas is back to spread more festive cheer, on selected dates from Saturday 21st November to Thursday 31st December.
