Drayton Manor introduces car parking charge

Drayton Manor has introduced a car parking charge for the first time, at a rate of £2 per vehicle.

Free parking had previously featured since the theme park’s founding, but the new charge takes effect from this weekend.

The Tamworth park’s main season ended on 30 October, but it will operate in a limited fashion during November and December.

The move leaves Flamingo Land as the only million-plus vistor theme park in the UK to have free parking.
