  5. Anthony Croce says:

    I want to use my clubcard vouchers for Drayton Manor but not sure how this would work?

    • Top Dog Days
      lizwalsh says:

      Hi Anthony, your clubcard vouchers can be exchanged for three times their value for use at Drayton Manor during their main theme park season. Simply exchange your clubcard vouchers for a clubcard partner code. After converting vouchers into a partner code, Tesco will send you two emails. The first email will be your clubcard order confirmation, the second email will contain your code. It is important to note that clubcard partner codes can only be redeemed against on-the-day price tickets, (currently £42pp), and NOT in conjunction with discounted ticket discounts that can be found online. Those using clubcard rewards cannot book in advance and will need to redeem at the gate on the day of your visit to Drayton Manor, hope that helps, Liz

    • Hi is the free return for the whole party that was booked eg 7 free returns or is it just for the lead booking person

If your Grandchildren are little, you could also take advantage of the parent & toddler ticket that offers 1 adult and 1 child age 4 & under entry from just £27.50 – this offer runs Monday to Friday during Staffordshire term time and remember under 2’s go free. Liz

  7. Darren Hassall says:

    How do I get discount through asda colleague discount and how many tickets can I get

    • Hi Darren, are you referring to the Asda fun packed summer promotion that ran during 2021? Unfortunately, you can no longer accumulate credits with this promotion although you can can redeem any accumulated credits against entry until 31 May 2022. If you are referring to a specific promotion for Asda employees at Drayton Manor, you would best contacting the park directly as we at Topdogdays simply signpost to generic special offers, vouchers and codes for Drayton Manor, Liz

      • Hi i have got 2 funpacked drayton manner voucher do i just present that at the gate?

        How much is it for a 2 year old, carer and a 5 year old with disabilitu?

        Also do you provide ride access for a child with disability?

        Is there any upcoming discount vouchers you have

        • Hi Naasira, within the terms and conditions of the funback voucher it states that “Once Funback credit has been applied to your account, you can browse participating venues, choose an activity and exchange your credit for a single-entry voucher for one person.” It goes on to say that “Instructions on how to redeem the free entry at your chosen venue will be sent via email. It varies per partner, in some instances you will receive a code to exchange for a ticket on your chosen partners website. In others you will receive a voucher that must be either printed / shown on your phone.” Please find more information about accessibility over at Drayton Manor accessibility guide.

    • Hi Muhammed, Drayton Manor do offer a group rate price that is available for a party of friends, family or colleagues that is worth taking a look at.

We’ve not found too many promotions running this year at Drayton Manor but hopefully you can find something within our list of Drayton Manor promotions currently running. If nothing else, do consider booking online in advance as you can pick up discounts off standard price tickets, Liz

  15. Do I have to book tickets or can I just buy them on the day

    • Hi Pete, you can buy tickets on the day, (although this is subject to capacity at the park), but you will have to pay the on the gate standard prices rather than take advantage of online ticket discounts, Liz

  17. Hiya, I want to go Drayton manor as a family is there any family packages for Drayton manor or discounts for a family of 7 who want to go Drayton manor theme park.

    • Hi Hanifa, Drayton Manor are not currently offering discounted family ticket options so you have only individual tickets available to you. Remember under 2’s go free, there are discounts available on tickets for both 2-3 years olds & 4-11 years olds plus a range of concessionary tickets to look out for. Unfortunately as group ticket prices start from 22 people this isn’t available to you, Liz

  18. Elesha English says:

    Hi are there any discounts for stay and play for August 30th/31st for 1 adult 1 child single parent discount

  19. Hi
    Is tge discount still available for teachers and support staff. If so, is it online.

    • Hi Shazia, there is seemingly an additional discount available on Drayton Manor tickets with discountsforteachers -not being a teacher myself, this isn’t a site I have any personal experience of so any feedback would be great so we can share it with our readers, Liz

  20. Shamus Iqbal says:


    Are there any 241 offers on at the moment?

    • Hi Shamus, I am not aware of any 2 for 1 vouchers currently available at Drayton Manor theme park. Whilst 2 for 1 vouchers are popular at merlin attractions such as Alton Towers, Thorpe Park, Legoland Windsor, it is not something we see much of at Drayton Manor and there does seem to be limited promotions currently running for many attractions at the moment, Liz

    • Winston roberts says:

      Looking to book in the school holidays possibly 6 adults and 2 kids

      • Hi Winston, we’re not seeing a huge number of promotions running at Drayton Manor this year and unfortunately I am not aware of any family discounted tickets available. There are savings on tickets to be made if you book online in advance with Drayton Manor. Tesco shoppers can take advantage of clubcard rewards. Blue light cardholders can take advantage of additional discounts or those in the Armed Forces can pick up a free ticket offer is either of these are relevant to you? Liz

  21. Jacqueline says:

    Hi do you have any discounts for or nhs please

    • Hi Jacqueline, Blue Light card holders can receive additional discounts on top of online ticket prices when they book online with Drayton Manor, (currently an additional 7% discount), hope that helps, Liz

  22. Lesley butler says:

    Want to take my family for fun day out on the 30th july there be 7 adults and two children age 4 can we get the parent and toddler deal please

    • Top Dog Days
      lizwalsh says:

      Hi Lesley, I like your thinking but unfortunately the Adult & Toddler ticket at Drayton Manor is only valid weekdays within Staffordshire term time so sadly won’t be available for the date of your visit.

  23. Tiffany Lloyd says:

    Hi, I am a Learning Support Assistant Teacher, so would I get any kind of discount?

    • Hi Tiffany, there looks like there might be concessions available for Drayton Mananor theme park through discountsforteachers. Not something I’ve used myself but might be worth a look? Liz

    • Kimberley Economou says:

      How do tesco shoppers with a clubcard obtain a discount?

      • Hi Kimberley, Tesco runs a loyalty scheme whereby you can collect points and subsequently redeem for rewards. Drayton Manor is one of their reward partners so you can exchange clubcard vouchers for theme park entry. You even have the option of topping up with cash if you haven’t quite got enough vouchers to pay in full. These tesco tickets are redeemed against on the day price tickets only, (not discounted or special offers/promotions).

  24. Is thateir any others for 2 adults and child under 2 as adults don’t go on ride but want to watch her son on ride

    • Hi Sarah, unfortunately Drayton Manor do not offer a non-ride ticket option at the park. Whilst you may not wish to undertake the thrill rides, many of the rides at the park have height restrictions that will require an adult to accompany a young child on the rides including those in Thomas Land, Liz

  25. Falak norsheen says:

    Hi I work for the NHS, do you do any offers at all

    • Hi Falak, blue light cardholders can access discounts for Drayton Manor if you book online in advance, hope this helps, Liz

  26. Rowzia Parveen says:

    Hi, I wondered if you currently have any offers for 2 adults please

    • Ho Rowzia, if you regularly shop at Tesco, there is an attractive clubcard rewards offer that may interest you. Alternatively, look out for discounted adult and toddler tickets or 2 day tickets that offer good value for money. There is also a good free entry offer for the Armed Forces that might be of use to you or look out for online discounts for those that book online in advance.

  27. Sarah barnes says:

    I’m an NHS worker and wanted to come with 2 adults and 2 7 year olds. Any discounts available for NHS?

    • Top Dog Days
      lizwalsh says:

      Hi Sarah, there is a discounted ticket offer running on Drayton Manor tickets for Blue Light cardholders that might be of interest to you? Currently sitting at 7% discount on top of online ticket prices, Liz

    • Christopher Arnold says:

      Hi, are there any 2nd day offers on please

      • Hi Christopher, thank you for your query regarding Drayton Manor 2nd day tickets. We at Topdogdays are independent of all visitor attractions including Drayton Manor, (we simply let you know where the deals are). Currently, it doesn’t seem possible to book online a 2 day ticket for the park. You could check on the day at guest services to see if there is an option to extend to a second day once you are at the park but I cannot see anything online to suggest this is a possibility this year.

      • Hi Christopher, I passed your query onto Drayton Manor who have since advised me that they do indeed offer 2nd tickets at the park. These can be purchased on the first day of your visit from guest services and are currently priced at £15pp, (for anyone 4 years and over), hope this helps, Liz

    • Your tesco clubcard voucher can be redeemed for 3 times its value, (thus £45 off standard price on-the-gate admission prices). Take advantage of the 4 Drayton Manor tickets for £88, (One 18+ must accompany groups aged 4-11) when you book online and you’ll find discounts for seniors and children available too.

  29. Muhammad Alim says:

    3 adult 2 children how much would it cost

  30. Are there currently any 2 for 1 discounts for September ??

    • Hi Alex, not that I have come across although if you book online 7 or more days in advance with Drayton Manor, you can pick up savings of up to 40% off the standard gate price ticket.

  31. Drayton Manor 2 for 1

    • Hi, whilst I cannot find a 2 for 1 voucher for Drayton Manor, I can see an online discount of up to 40% off standard price tickets if you book directly online with Drayton Manor 7 or more days in advance.

  32. Chloe Burgess says:

    Hi I can’t find any 2 for 1 deals anywhere. We where going to go Drayton manor on Friday could u tell me the best deals for 4 adults 2 13 yr olds 12 year old and a 3 year old or would in be cheaper going some where else

    • Hi Chloe, yes I’ve struggled to find a 2 for 1 vouchers for Drayton Manor too unless you are travelling by train. There a some good online discounts that worth taking a look at either through Drayton Manor directly or 365 tickets that offer quite a discount off on-the-gate prices. Alternatively redeem Tesco clubcard vouchers for tokens?

  33. Hi do you have any deals for a family of 6

    • Hi Paul, Drayton Manor offer family tickets for families of 3, 4 & 5 that are available on the gate only that are priced at £81, £108, £135 respectively this summer.

  34. I’m interested in the £109 deal for drayton manor theme park and hotel stay.
    How do I go about booking this ?


  35. WE are interested in any savings for days out

    • The best discounts currently running for Drayton Manor are be either by booking online, (adults £20, children £15, (4-1 years) before 1 September OR take advantage of a 2 for 1 voucher for Drayton Manor from Vouchercodes that is valid until 31 August 2013. Enjoy:)

  36. Maggie Turner says:

    I wanted to pay for 2 tickets for my son and grandson but will not be visiting myself. The terms and conditions say the tickets will only be given to the card holder!! Not a good option. The office is now closed so I cannot ask anyone for advice and I wanted to book online for tomorrow. Looks like I will miss out on the £20, £15 deal.

    • Hi Maggie, I understand that Drayton Manor does this to help protect against card fraud but I have raised this with them to see if there is a possible route round this. I will let you know if I receive any further information that could help your situation.

      • Hi Maggie, I have now received further information that may help your situation…the reason they ask for cards to be shown upon collection is as proof of identity as well as purchase and to prevent fraudulent purchases. If buying on behalf of someone else, tickets can be bought at the online discount rate from the call centre (0844 472 1960) instead of online. Tickets can then be posted out to the home address of the person buying them (the cost of postage will need to be covered) and then physically given to those visiting.

        • One other option available to those that want to book tickets online at Drayton Manor, is to ensure the recipient is aware of the full booking information. Then if the card holder is not present to collect the tickets, the park’s staff will ask the guest to confirm all of the booking info (address, telephone number and email) before releasing the tickets.

  37. crazycarl says:

    PLEASE UPDATE: In the first para on this page it states adults are £20, kids up to 11 are £5 in advance, yet the prices are now £25 for adults and £20 for kids between 4 and 11

    • Top Dog Days
      lizwalsh says:

      Hi Crazycard, it is a little confusing I know but tickets are indeed £20 an adult/£15 a child,(£5 for 2-3 year olds) if you book in advance and visit between 20 July & 1 Sept….don’t worry about the stated prices on the Drayton Manor website as you first go through to the site, just select a date between 20 July & 1 September and the discounted ticket prices will come up.

  38. shagufta Kanwal says:

    Hey where I can pik my vouchers

    • Hi Shagufta, do you mean the 2 for 1 voucher for Drayton Manor? For this deal, just follow the link through to vouchercodes, sign up and download your 2 for 1 voucher. Not long to go on this deal as it expires on 30 June. If you are looking to go over the school summer holidays, then check out the reduced price ticket offer from Drayton Manor with adults tickets £20, (12 years +) or children, (4-11 years) £15.

  39. Glenys L says:

    Can I use Tesco clubcard vouchers for Thomasland at Drayton Manor?

    • Top Dog Days
      lizwalsh says:

      Hi Glenys, yes you can use Tesco clubcard rewards tokens for entrance charges as Thomas Land sits within the offer of Drayton Manor Theme Park. For Drayton Manor, you can use clubcard vouchers as a ‘pay in full’ reward with every £10 in clubcard vouchers gaining each person entry to the park, (& thus Thomas Land as well). Remember to redeem your clubcard vouchers for reward tokens before you visit the park.

  40. Hi there….where can I pick up a 2 for 1 voucher for Drayton Manor for May? Thanks!

    • Top Dog Days
      lizwalsh says:

      Tanya, try the visittheheart website, (link above) that has a current 2 for 1 voucher for Drayton Manor. Always worth checking online with Drayton Manor too as they often have 2 for 1 vouchers on their site especially around school holiday times.
