The Globe Inn and Tamworth Hotel is located just a few miles from Drayton Manor Park.



Drayton Manor Theme Park, also home to Thomas Land, is a premier attraction in the Midlands area.

Open since 1949, when it opened as a small attraction with just a few small rides, the park has steadily grown and gone from strength to strength. Originally the Manor and its grounds were owned by Robert Peel and his family, until the house fell into ruin.

The park incorporates numerous large scale rides such as Shockwave and The Apocalypse and Thomas Land, a theme park dedicated to the childrens literary and television character. It also contains its own zoo.

The park is easily accessible via the town centre and the surrounding areas.
