  1. I had booked tickets and It came out to be in the wrong criteria of age group. I tried calling you guys since noon and has been put up on hold for more than 2 hours and still no response. I tried e-mail and still no response. How do I contact in order to follow up with the tickets. My plan of visit is tomorrow and it takes about 2 hours for me to reach your place. My booking ID is KISA902043.

    Awaiting your response.

    • Hi Akkshaya, I’m not sure it have resolved this matter yet? You are best contacting Drayton Manor directly either by phone, (0844 472 1950) or by email, (info@draytonmanor.co.uk). I hope you manage to work it out and enjoy a day at the park.

  2. hi drayton manor is a very good place and it is AWESOME i like the animals there.

    • Hi Jade, I have to agree Drayton Manor is an all round theme park that not only has rides to suit all ages but also has the added bonus of the animals too. I hope you manage to visit this season:)

  3. Hi Drayton Manor,

    I was thinking of booking tickets for next weekend (Sunday) 2 Adults 1 disabled child. Do I get a discount of the child age (14) ? if so do I have to bring proof off his disability.

    Also I don’t go on rides due to a bad back :( I cant understand why I have to pay full price to look round.

    I understand this is a big problem with most theme parks and it certainly puts me off from making visits has theme parks are not cheap. I also understand its a independent company all out for making money & ripping people off, I am sure more people would visit if their was a small fee for people who don’t go on the rides? I am sure they could use coloured bands that the staff check before letting people on rides the bands could be different colours throughout the week with bands printed with rides on persons who have paid full price and visitor on none riders, I personally think all companies should look at their pricing.

    Kindest Regards

    • Hi Katie, thank you for your feedback regarding Drayton Manor. Whilst we are not part of Drayton Manor, (we simply provide information for days out on a budget), we do hear similar feedback from other guests who would like theme parks to distinguish between guests that will be using the rides & attractions and those that will not. Some theme parks have set up a system that charges a smaller fee for those not intending to access the rides, (such as Blackpool Pleasure Beach), so the problems are not insurmountable so it might be worth considering venues that offer a wristband facility. In terms of your query for Drayton Manor, perhaps best to email directly on info@draytonmanor.co.uk.

  4. Hi I was looking at prices for Drayton manor and I noticed I would have to pay full price for a ticket for me which I think is unfair I know a lot of places do this to. I know I won’t be going on any rides at all it would be my husband and my kids going on them. Why is it I still have to pay full price? Things like this put me off going . Thank you

    • Hi Kelly, I can see your point and you are certainly not alone in this criticism of theme parks. Unfortunately, we do not have any influence over this policy at Drayton Manor as we are independent of all theme parks. I am aware that theme parks often say it would be difficult to police if there were customers at the park that cannot use the rides. However parks such as Blackpool Pleasure Beach or M & D’s Scotlands Theme Park manage to overcome this obstacle.

  5. lucy allcott says:

    My son really wants to go to drayton manor. But me and my husband cannot justify paying £25 each ( cheapest price ive found on the net) to supervise my 6 year old son, as we will not be going on any rides… why dont they do a cheap tickets for people like us instead of £50 to walk around.

    • Hi Lucy, you have a valid point and one we do hear quite often, (we are independent of all visitor attractions). Unfortunately, this does seem to be the way of many UK theme parks although Bleackpool Pleasure Beach does offer an entrance ticket only for around £6 per person. However, keep in mind there are height restrictions in place that require children under a certain height to be accompanied on the rides.

  6. Jansen brown says:

    Who much would it be for 2 adults and 3 children ages (18,18,13)

    • Hi Jansen, hard to give a definitive answer as prices change depending upon when you visit and the best price tickets available at the time. An adult at Drayton Mnaor is classed as 12-59 years, (discounted rates for seniors), so you will be looking at the price for 5 adults for your party.

  7. Michelle Langton says:

    Trying hard to get voucher codes for drayton manor for mon 18 th for my boys birthday there is 2 adults 2children plz help me find them

  8. angela kelly says:

    hi ive ttried to look how much tickets would be for myself an 3 kids,however it just keeps telling me there is a problem with tickets so still dont know what offers there are,any ideas plz,

    • Hi Angela, I think they are having a problem with their system today so perhaps just keep checking back. Doesn’t usually take too long to fix.

  9. Is their a 2 for 1 vouchers in the first week of August, , so if 2 adults an 2 kidz (4,8 yrs) go wot would da price be?? Thanks.

  10. 2 adults, 2kids with car for a day out in August 2014, wots da best deal or discount I can get for the family…..?? #HOLIDAYZ!!

    • Hi Asif, if you book online with Drayton Manor they are currently offering tickets for £25 an adult/£20 a child, (4-11 years) or 365tickets are also offering £25 an adult/£20 a child. As standard ticket price is currently £36 an adult or £27 a child, both options offer a discounted entry. You can pick up a 2 for 1 voucher if you travel by train but I can see you are looking to drive to Drayton Manor & I’m not aware of any other 2 for 1 vouchers currently running.

  11. Bev Porter says:

    I have a 9 month old grandson, would the rides at Thomas Land be suitable for him please. Are weekday tickets at the moment cheaper please. Thanks

    • Top Dog Days
      lizwalsh says:

      Hi Bev, whilst a number of the Thomas Land rides wouldn’t be suitable for such a young age, there are a few rides that you would be able to sit on & enjoy with your grandson. You can also take the Thomas train from one side of the park to the other & enjoy the zoo.

  12. Mohammed Zulfiqar says:

    keep me updated on drayton manor offers

    • Hi Mohammed, the best way to keep up to date is to sign up for our email newsletter as we often include a round-up of all the latest deals including those for Drayton Manor. To sign up, go to Topdogdays Email Newsletter Sign Up. Alternatively, keep checking back to this page as we continually update here for new Draytom Manor deals.

  13. I am 12 and I am going Drayton manor with my school next Friday and my school said that it cost £25 for the enter and the travel but how much money should I take

    • Hi Haleema, once you have paid for your ticket, all the rides & attractions are included within the price. In the park you can purchase food & drink, (Drayton Manor welcome picnics though if you want to costs down), souvenirs, stalls, arcade & ride photos should you wish. Have a great day:)

  14. We are church children Coming As Group.what Is D Price For Group?

    • A group at Drayton Manor Theme Park consists of 12 or more people in one vehicle. Pre-booked group ticket prices currently stand at £18.50 an adult, (12-59 years), £18.50 a child, (4-11 years), £5, (2-3 years), plus free entry for one organiser per coach. More details are available direct from Drayton Manor on 0844 472 1960.

  15. How to buy tickets online

    • Faiaq, you can either purchase directly from Drayton Manor or through 3rd party site such as 365tickets or AttractionTixs.

  16. Considering it’s currently off peak, the deal isn’t so amazing:

    Children £3 more expensive than from Drayton’s website, adults £2 cheaper… I guess it depends on the demographic of your groups (3 kids + 1 adults, so no good for me!)

    • Hi Matt, I have to agree it is always worth shopping around for the best price & this will differ depending upon the make-up of your family/party. At least by forward planning you are likely to take advantage of substantial savings off the on-the-gate prices for Drayton Manor. Good luck in your search:)

  17. Hi Maureen,

    There is a 50% offer on at the moment at 365Tickets and they often have great sales throughout the year.

    • Hi, I’ve noticed that 365tickets have 30% off right now.. But when I add all people to basket. It doesn’t take any money off and stays at 25pp. I don’t understand how 25 can be the price after 30% off when the gate price is 36? Very confusing. Unless I’m missing something out? Thanks

      • Hi Sally, my understanding is that ‘save over 30% on adult tickets’ currently running at 365tickets relates to the discount from the on-the-gate ticket price so the £25pp quoted is already (approximately) 30% off the standard ticket price…does that make sense?

  18. Is there a deal if a coach of 50 go drayton manner theme park

    • Hi Damian, Drayton Manor offer substantial discounts for bookings for groups that pre-book their tickets. Groups of 12 or more will constitute as a group so that’s no trouble for you guys. Simply contact Drayton Manor directly for further details.

  19. Maureen Fewings says:

    Hi, after a great visit at Christmas we are looking to return for a day at Easter. We were wondering if there are any 2 for 1 offers as there will be 10 of us.

    • Hi Maureen, there are not too many 2 for 1 vouchers for Drayton Manor currently available although if you travel by train you can pick up a 2 for 1 voucher from Day Out 2 for 1 Vouchers. Just check out the full terms & conditions before setting out.
      Do keep checking back and we’ll let you know when & if any 2 for 1’s become available later in the season.

  20. Hi,

    Looking to go to Drayton tomorrow, does anyone know if the voucher codes ‘2for1′ deal in-date at the moment will be excepted? Or if anyone has used it yet?

    Also can you get away with the £3 parking? Just wondered whether they actually check tickets etc.. sounds tight but I just really hate having to pay for parking!


    • Hi Jemma, there is a 2 for 1 voucher for Dayton Manor currently running with Vouchercodes that is valid until 31 August 2013.

  21. Mohammed Ahmed says:

    Hi! I have a coach party of 49 people and was wondering what kind of deal you can do for me with regards to entry to the theme park. There will be a mix of adults and children and if the price is agreeable we will be visiting next Tuesday or Wednesday. Thanks and I hope to hear from you at your soonest.

  22. sarah mather says:

    Hiya how do I et this discount I’m looking to go over the next few weeks but when I’ve started the process online its the normal £20 adult £15 child is there s discount code I need to enter or is it only valid weekdays?

    • Hi Sarah, Drayton Manor have discounted their online prices for the summer season, (until 2 September) to the prices you have seen; adult £20, child £15. At the gate prices are £36 an adult or £27 a child, so this is a significant discount. There no discount codes that I am aware that will reduce this online cost any further.

  23. hey there
    i m planning the trip on 6th aug. i have got 2 for 1 voucher. can i use it if i have to book online?


    • Hi Shallu, unfortunately with 2 for 1 vouchers for Drayton Manor or other attractions you will need to be accompanied by a full paying person, (often this must be an adult), & cannot take advantage of discounted online prices or any other concession. The full price person must pay the on-the-gate prices on the day.

  24. Dissapointed with DraytonManor says:

    I’m really DISSAPOINTED with Drayton Manor Parkand their attempt at ripping people off :( According to one of their web pages they claim that an adult ticket costs upto £38 when arriviung at the gates, but by pre-booking the ticket it costs just £20…come on how can that initial price be justified. And the kids prices arn’t much lower. Then to confuse things further they have another page that says that the discount kids tickets arn’t £15 ,as advertised elsewhere, but £18.50. Surely that is misinformation? Its no wonder people go abroad for holidays and why everyone is calling this rip off Britain!!

    • Whilst we are independent of Drayton Manor, we do always recommend that the best prices for visitor attractions comes with a bit of research & planning. Drayton Manor offer discounted ticket prices until 1 September when booked online & in advance, (adults £20, children £15)…turn up on the day & unfortunately the prices will be much steeper.

  25. Hello,
    I’m looking at the Drayton Manor deals & adventure theme park short break for family of 4 for £159 & it states its for 2 adults & 2 children but I want to take myself (definitely adult!) 2x 14 yr olds & a 13 yr old, would this be possible?

    • Hi Debbie, I understand that the standard Theme Parks Short Break Package relates to 2 adults & 2 children, (up to the age of 16 years) OR 1 adult & 3 children, (up to the age of 16 years) for the same price, (£159). You can also add further children onto this package for an additional charge. Full terms & conditions can be found at http://www.goleicestershire.com/short-breaks/SPE-theme-parks-terms.aspx or contact them directly on 0844 888 5151.

  26. Gary Williams says:

    Hi there, im planning on coming up on the 2nd of august 2013 … Are there any deals? 2 adults + 1 child (6 yrs old) thanks

    • Gary Williams says:


    • Hi Gary, currently the best ticket price is with Drayton Manor when you book online. Adult tickets, (12 years plus) are priced at £20 & children, (4-11 years) are priced at £15. Drayton Manor are running a promotion on 2 August where anyone under 11 years, named George, can pick up a child’s ticket for £5..if this is any good for you.

  27. Hi, I’m looking to come Sunday 7th July for my daughters birthday. But I could really do with some sort of deal. There will be 3 over 12 and 1 under. What’s the best deal available please.

    • Top Dog Days
      lizwalsh says:

      Hi Angela, you could try Tesco clubcard vouchers, (need to be redeemed for tokens before your visit), a 2 for 1 voucher if you travel by train, a child free voucher from promotional multi packs of Capri-Sun. If you have any flexibility on when you visit, you’ll find reduced online prices from 20 July, (adults 12 years & over £20, children £15). Remember that generally you will only be able to use one offer per transaction!

  28. Hi was just wondering if there is any 2 for 1 for July 6th

    • Hi Ange, there is a 2 for 1 voucher for Drayton Manor that is available if you travel by train? Unfortunately, the 2 for 1 Drayton Manor from Vouchercodes expires on 30 June & the online reduced price ticket promotion, (adults £20, children £15) starts on 20 July. Other options include tesco clubcard vouchers, Thrill Hopper tickets or the Stay Play Explore accommodation & ticket offer.

  29. Is this a 2012 article? The 2 for 1 doesn’t work for me.

    • Hi Paul, these are up to date Drayton Manor deals. There is a 2 for 1 voucher for Drayton Manor if you travel by train, (there is a link within the article). Alternatively, there is a 2 for 1 Drayton Manor voucher with voucher codes that has a few more days left on it, (expires 30 June) that is available at Drayton Manor 2 for 1 voucher.

  30. Pls can u tell me what is the best offer for me with 2 adult and 2children for end of june

    • Hi Parvin, there is a 2 for 1 voucher running with Voucher Codes that is valid until 30 June. This offer provides one free entry when accompanied by a full paying adult but does state that it is ‘Only one offer per voucher per transaction’….worth printing off enough vouchers & splitting into 2’s at the ticket kiosk. More details available at Drayton Manor Voucher

  31. Michelle c -ryce says:

    Hi I am planning on visiting tomorrow 2adults 2 children can u advise if I can use my voucher codes voucher which is 2for 1 for all of us plse? So I have two vouchers can I use for the children as well? Thanks

    • Top Dog Days
      lizwalsh says:

      Sorry Michelle, this reply is too late for you now but thanks for pointing out the 2 for 1 for Drayton Manor with voucher codes. This voucher is valid everyday between 15 April & 19 May & allows the voucher-holder, (adult or child) free entry when accompanied by a full priced adult. As only one voucher can be used per transaction, you would need to print off enough vouchers required for your full party & split into two’s at the ticket kiosks.

  32. Hi I have been looking at the thrill hopper ticket which you have the price as £47.50 how ever the price on the website that you are redirected to is selling them at £60 Im assuming that this is down to the prices being for last season and the £60
    just thought i would bring this to your attention

    • Hi John, my apologies for this oversight on my part…I have now updated the Thrill Hopper information accordingly.

  33. Hi, planning a visit with kids over Easter. I’m due another baby in 4 weeks so will not b able to go on rides. R there any discounts or will I still need to pay full adult price? Thanks

    • Linda, whilst the bad news is that you will need to pay for an adult ticket whether you are accessing the rides or not, the good news is Drayton Manor is running a good Easter promotion with adult tickets priced at £20, (standard price £36) for visits between 29 March & 14 April 2013.

  34. Looking at booking a ticket for nephew and his son (3years old) for thomas land.. maybe zoo? whats best deals for end of march (27th -28th -29th march)?

    many thanks

    • Jean, I am not aware yet of any possible deals that Drayton Manor maybe running over Easter but do keep popping back to Topdogdays as we will update our information if we hear of anything. Currently, online prices at Drayton Manor give the best savings we can see. Tesco shoppers can also take advantage of clubcard vouchers, (must be redeemed for clubcard Drayton Manor tokens prior to your visit).

  35. hi we are planning a trip to drayton manor for the first time on the 3rd April. there’s 2 adults and 2 children but one will be 12 and the other 2. what is the best deal on offer for us at that time????

    • Lizzy, your 12 year old is classed as an adult, so you’ll be looking for 3 adults and 1 child. Drayton manor have a special rate for 2-3 year olds, (just £5 a ticket) whether you book online or pay at the gate. Drayton Manor have not released any details yet regarding any offers over Easter but worth keeping an eye out over the next few weeks. We’ll be posting any further offers as they come in.

      Your best bet is to try to get the price down on the 3 adult tickets.

  36. during Easter we would like to visit Drayton manor theme park for a day between 25th March 2013 to 29 march 2013.
    We are 4 adults and 5 children, what is the best discount deal you have at this time, please could you let me know and do we need to book in advance? please could you email me. Thankyou.

    • Khadija, unfortunately for you group rates start from 12 people & more! Whilst there are family reduced priced tickets, these cannot be purchased in advance online.

      Drayton Manor have not released any details yet regarding any offers over Easter but worth keeping an eye out over the next few weeks. We’ll be posting any further offers as they come in.

  37. 2 adults 2 kids for day at drayton manor with car on thursday 23rd or the 30th aygust wots the best deal

    • Cowper, the best value deal currently running for Drayton Manor is the online adult, £20, child £12 deal that comes with free parking that is running throughout the summer. Drayton Manor are offering 2,012 discounted tickets for each day so worth checking which days remain available during August.

  38. there are four of us that want to come 3 adults and one child. if we use the two for one how much will it cost, we have two of the 2for1 tickets.

    • Jasmine, you may want to consider the current online Drayton Manor deal that offers £20 for adults, £12 for kids & free parking that may work out better value for you. In general terms a 2 for 1 voucher can only be used on the day against full price tickets. Check your 2 for 1 voucher as you may only be able to use 1 voucher per transaction, (can you split into twos at the ticket kiosk?) & you very well may need two vouchers.

  39. Ruksana sawed says:

    Please send me promotion dates and discounts that r available I would like to come with a party of 40 on 20th August

    • Ruksana, if you intend to visit in one vehicle/coach, I would suggest your best bet would be to take advantage of the group rates that Drayton Manor run. For groups of 30 or more people, you can gain entrance for just £17.95 if pre-booked, (http://www.draytonmanor.co.uk/schools.php?sub=groups).

      Alternatively take advantage of the Drayton Manor summer promotion that is offering entrance for just £20 per adult that is running from 21 July to 2 September…there are only a limited number of tickets available for each day, (limited to 2012 tickets each day), so worth booking this one as soon as possible to take advantage of this deal. More details available at;
