Drayton’s Magical Christmas


I am  HUGE Thomas fan and was looking forward very much to visiting him at Drayton’s Magical Christmas recently, but I have been quite poorly and was unable to go. As it is a long way from us I don’t think we will make it this year now, but it looks so amazing that I wanted to share it with you anyway in case you are looking for somewhere special to visit leading up to Christmas.

  13. This place sounds amazing. I wish I lived nearer.

    My little girl loves Thomas which pleases my brother (her Uncle) no end as he loved Thomas as a child. He got annoyed the other day because it’s not voiced by Ringo Starr anymore and he didn’t know “all these new characters”. LOL.

  14. This truly does look magical I have never been but it does look like a lot of fun!
