As it gets closer to Christmas there is nothing like visits to see Santa to build up the suspense and the magic before the special day. We usually try and squeeze in as many grotto visits as possible. But you can do one better and visit somewhere like Drayton Manor, you can enjoy the Santa visit, but combine it with watching the Polar Express in the 4D cinema. It even snows as part of the screening!
On top of that Thomas Land looks spectacular all lit up and with snow machines ensuring it snows three times a day, you can totally absorb yourself in all things Christmas.
It pains me not to be attending this weekend. Watching the cinema screening, seeing the boys faces lit up on spotting Santa in his enchanted snow castle and myself possibly admiring the knights!!! Something to appeal to all the family! What a great idea having a literal knight before Christmas theme!
At the end of the day there is a fireworks show over the enchanted castle. What a way to complete an enchanting day, that your children will remember always. Children soon grow up, so its the time to hang onto the wonder of Christmas now.
Magical Christmas started at Drayton Manor on the 16th of November and is the perfect way to feel festive. Even Scourge himself would be hard pushed not to get into the spirit of things here!
Drayton’s Magical Christmas will start on Friday 16th November 2012 and runs every weekend (Fri - Mon) in the run up to Christmas. It will be closed on 24th, 25th and 26th December, before opening daily on Thursday 27th December until Monday 7th January 2013. Currently, online prices are £15 for adults, £10 for children and free for under 4's. So a real bargain if you ask me!
