May 24, 2016

With the weather getting warmer and with Spring bank holiday in Whitsun week, now’s the time to get out and spend time with family and friends. Why not come and explore Drayton Manor and Thomas Land!

Visit the Island of Sodor meeting Thomas and all of his Friends or for all you thrill seekers, Shockwave and Apocalypse are here waiting for you to face your fears. 

Also, don’t forget to meet the newest residents of the Drayton Manor Zoo in the new Tamarin Trail. The zoo has it all from reptiles to Meerkats to Sumatran Tigers; you won’t believe how close you are to these wild animals.

We visited the Love Your Zoo event last year and it was lovely to see the different animals, activities and talks available. It’s held in the Education centre and hosts an array of Whitsun animal arts and crafts, including balloon modelling and making animal treats, running from 30th May – 3rd June between 10am – 4pm.

The zoo will also be showcasing how they feed the animals throughout the day, join them between 9.50am – 4.15pm  for the Sumatran Tiger, Parrot presents, Black Leopard, Tamarin’s, Brazilian Tapir Feed, Ostrich and Kangaroo feed, Lemur and Gibbon, Meerkat and Snowy Owl.
