The cost of a family visit to Drayton Manor can run into the hundreds of pounds, particularly when the cost of foods, souvenirs and accommodation is factored in.
Luckily , it is possible to save significant amounts of money by planning ahead. Here are some essential tips to help you hang on to the contents of your wallet:
Take advantage of special offers and discounts
Drayton Manor frequently offers “2-for-1” deals in conjunction with newspapers, stores and websites. Tesco shoppers can also use Clubcard Vouchers to save around 70% on adult tickets. You can find all the latest offers using Theme Park Tourist’s Drayton Manor deals pages, and if all else fails tickets are available at a 30% discount from the Drayton Manor website and from 365Tickets.
Pick up an Annual Pass
If you’re a regular visitor to Drayton Manor, buying an Annual Pass or a Season Pass could save you money in the long-run. As a rough rule of thumb, you’ll need to visit at least 3 times per year for the pass to cost in.
Take your own drinks and snacks
Food and drink can be quite expensive at Drayton Manor. Bringing a selection of drinks and snacks (or even a packed lunch) is advisable, and there are plenty of pleasant spots around the park where you can consume them. If you don’t want to lug a picnic around all day, leave them in the car and send someone back to collect it at lunchtime
Weigh up the benefits of short break deals
If you want to stay near Drayton Manor, there are some good deals available on short breaks. This includes stays at the Drayton Manor Hotel, although this can be quite expensive when compared to nearby properties.
