We had a special visit to see Santa in the Castle of Dreams at Drayton Manor, Tamworth last weekend. Braving the chilly conditions, which all added to the effect of preparing for christmas, we wrapped up warm and had lots of fun. Our day began in Thomas Land where there are a host of rides appropriate for the little ones. Throughout the day there are christmas shows with carol singers and snow to get you in the spirit. We explored the zoo where the animals came out to say hello; there were even some of Santa’s favourite reindeer to visit and see too.
Thomas then came to collect us and took us back to Thomas Land for more fun on the rides amongst the snow showers. A beautifully decorated tree with twinkling lights stands tall in the centre of the park against a back drop of the beautiful lake over which the amazing firework show takes place each evening.
We had booked our slot for the Castle of Dreams where Santa awaited. We didn’t feel at all rushed with the big man and when we left he gave the little lady a lovely gift. We explored the low lit castle after our visit with Santa where the little ones can enjoy some time away from the hustle and bustle of the rides.
So, if you’re looking for a Christmas visit and enjoy the rides, why not check our Drayton Manor’s Magical Christmas this December.
