Having travelled quite a long way to go to Drayton Manor, we decided to squeeze in a trip to the Castle the day before. We thoroughly enjoyed it and we thought it offered excellent value for money. From the outside the Castle doesn't look huge, but once inside it's like a labyrinth and there was plenty to keep us intrigued... More

The trip its self way very good and a lot to see however if you have a family with young children then make sure your not in a wheelchair or pushchair..... They don't allow you in and state you must carry your child around ! Our guide was more interested in himself and reading a book than talking to us... More

Friends of ours had their wedding ceremony at this location it was lovely. It was so romantic beautiful setting. It was something different than a registry office or church wedding. The room used has some wonderful decor and it gave a special enhancement to the wedding day

We came here with our two boys on a rainy Sunday not expecting much but this was a very nice and interesting castle with interactive stuff for the kids to do and some exhibits that actually encourage you to touch them, which is unusual! Lovely grounds and well situated close to the town centre and close a good adventure playground... More
