Drayton Manor is the home of Thomas Land, the first Thomas and Friends based theme park in Europe.

In 2009, HiT Entertainment opened an exhibition with some original models from the television series because of the switch to CGI animation.

Train rides

A narrow gauge railway runs from Knapford Station to Tidmouth Hault. It also includes Dryaw and Tidmouth Sheds, where stationary models of Edward, Henry, Gordon, Toby and Rosie are kept. Inside it is Harold's Heli-Tours. When Thomas Land was opened, the line was run by Thomas and Percy, using Annie and Clarabel and the red coaches. In 2009, Rosie was added to the line. There are also several sidings, one carrying a full, sleeping model of James.

  • In 2014, the park became a filming location for Nativity 3: Dude, Where's my Donkey? Percy with his face removed and Knapford Station made a cameo as well.
