Lockers to be found at Drayton Manor that are available for hire by the hour or by the day.  Lockers are located either next to Emily’s play area within Thomas Land or behind the carousel.  Available in 3 separate sizes, (small, medium & large), lockers can be hired for either 2 hours, 4 hours or 12 hours with prices starting from £1, (small locker for 2 hours) up to £6, (large locker for 12 hours).

The advantage with Drayton Manor lockers is that there is no key to loose or PIN numbers to remember; you simply scan your ticket to access your locker!  You have unlimited access to your locker during the hire period, (pay any overtime on your return) that allows you to come & go throughout the day.

Drayton Manor; Picnic Spots

There are plenty of picnic tables to be found around the park including a large range of options centrally located around the lakeside, (close to the lockers).  One of our favourite picnic spots can be found within Spencer’s Outdoor Activity Park that allows children to eat & run and parents to enjoy a well earned rest!

Budget Food at Drayton Manor Theme Park

For lunch away from the crowds, try the Safari Pizza & Pasta, located close to the entrance to the Zoo. Whilst this serves all you typical theme park food, it does tend to be much quieter than Central Plaza as it’s more hidden away.

  1. Linda foreman says:

    Hello can you advise can I pay cash at food outlets in theme park or is it all cashless thank you

    • Hi Linda, thanks for your query regarding Drayton Manor. Unfortunately I haven’t visited Drayton Manor this season so I’m unsure as to their current situation regarding cash. I can see online that their ATM’s on site are closed so it might be worth contacting Drayton Manor directly with your query as Topdogdays is independent of all visitor attractions, Liz

  2. how much is food at Drayton Manor

    • Hi Ben, there are a range of food options at Drayton Manor from fast food kiosk options through to sit down meals in a restaurant setting. Alternatively make use of the on-site lockers and bring your own food for a budget option.

    Hi do u do halal food please at any of your stalls thank you

    • Hi Aaishah, I can see from the Drayton Manor website, (Topdogdays is independent of all visitor attractions), that they state that they ‘have a limited offering of gluten free options, products suitable for vegetarians and guests with a halal diet’ so best to ask for further details on arrival.

  4. Wish to visit drayton manor sept 6th for granddaughter’s 9th birthday with family .Please advise me of any good offers

    • Hi, worth taking account of senior discounts available at Drayton Manor, (60 years +). Often you can pick up a much better price is you book online either directly at Drayton Manor or with 3 party ticket sites such as 365tickets so worth checking around.

    • Hi Emqan, I do take your point regarding food options at Drayton Manor. My difficulty is keeping up to date with the range & price of food available at Drayton Manor, (or at any theme park), to ensure the information I am providing is as accurate as possible.
