Celebrating Christmas has always been one of my most favourite times of the year. Since becoming a mum, it has also become the time when I adore watching my two daughters being super excited about seeing father Christmas and opening their Xmas gifts.
Every year we make sure that the girls have also the opportunity to meet Father Xmas face-to-face. This year it was at the Drayton Manor Park while experiencing their Magical Christmas. This has been open since November 17th and takes place on selected dates until the end of December.
Families are invited to enter Europe’s only Thomas Land™ which has been beautifully adorned with sparkling decorations as far as the eye can see, not to mention the accompanying festive music so visitors can fully immerse themselves in the ultimate fairy-tale setting.
Based on the popular Thomas & Friends™ books and children’s TV show, this themed area becomes the ultimate winter wonderland, with guaranteed snow showers.
Castle of Dreams
To add to the festivities, there is also be a spellbinding firework display every evening for guests to enjoy, sweet treats, mince pies and delicious mulled wine for mum and dad to keep the winter frost at bay, not to mention a meet and greet with Father Christmas’ reindeers at the park’s 15-acre Zoo.
After loads of fun in the park, we were invited to Father Christmas’ grotto at the Castle of Dreams! I loved watching my girls anxiously answering his questions what they would love for Christmas. Then also paying a close attention to me and daddy’s confirming that they both were mainly good girls and deserved what they ask for.
Meeting Father Christmas was undoubtedly magical. They both also received a special Christmas gift from Father Christmas.
Drayton Manor Park’s Magical Christmas recently received an award for the Best Tourism Experience of the Year in the Enjoy Staffordshire Awards, so visitors can be assured of a wonderful day out to make those precious memories last a lifetime.
Make sure you visit Drayton Manor Magical Christmas and book your tickets soon. We had a wonderful time, creating fun family memories that last a lifetime.
