A local theme park has been named the best attraction in the UK for children.

Drayton Manor won the accolade after topping the vote in the Group Leisure Awards – the second year running it has taken the title.

William Bryan, Managing Director of Drayton Manor Theme Park, said: “We are delighted to have won this award again.

“It’s a real testament to the team here. We work extremely hard to ensure that we maintain our goal, which has always been to provide an amazing day out for our visitors.

“This is the eighth time we have received this award from Group Leisure Magazine since 2004 and we’ve won 10 overall – this one is every bit as important to us as the first.”
