Perfect for the little ones, a trip to Thomas Land at Drayton Manor! Plan to fly into Birmingham Airport, and easily navigated public transport will bring you directly to Tamworth Train Station, which is about a mile from your hotel.
A short taxi ride or 20 minute walk brings you this lovely 3* hotel, where you’ll stay for three nights. Located in the heart of a busy market town, next to a great retail park, it’s also within easy reach of Birmingham City Centre, Lichfield Cathedral City and the M42.
Step back in time and experience early medieval life at Tamworth Castle. Check out the events at the NEC in Birmingham. Or whizz down the UK’s first full-sized real snow ski slope at the Snowdome. Then relax in the spacious rooms and extra-comfy beds.
But for two days while you’re here, you’re heading to Drayton Manor Theme Park! The hotel is just 2.5 miles from the resort, so a quick taxi ride or a long leisurely walk will get you there and of course I can help with information on public transport and taxi contacts. When you make it there, none of you will want to leave, with over 100 Rides & Attractions, a 15 acre Zoo, and of course, Thomas Land!
Family Rides, Thrill Rides, a 4D Cinema, Carousel, Dodgems and so much more, even if not everyone in your brood is a big Thomas the Tank Engine Fan, there’s plenty for everyone. But for the fanatics, they won’t be disappointed, with Bertie’s Bus, Cranky’s Tower Drop, Emily’s Play Adventure and Harold’s Helicopter Tours, to name just a few!
For some down time, the Drayton Manor Zoo is a fascinating place to explore with 15 acres of open plan zoo home to over 100 animals from all over the world including endangered species. Exotic birds, primates, reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates are all waiting to meet you there.
So bring the little (and big) ones to Drayton Manor Park for Thomas Land heaven, with so much more on the side., with the following trips planned:
