A Day At Drayton Manor, Tamworth
The great thing about
this particular theme park is that it isn’t just rollercoasters and thrill rides – one section of the park is also a zoo, which meant that pregnant animal lover me could happily go exploring too. I actually didn’t mind following the boys either, because unlike some park like Alton Towers there are benches positioned around the park meaning I could usually take a seat and watch them (or take sneaky photographs) – I didn’t have to stand up for huge periods of time, easing the pressure on my hips.
After spending far too much time on the various game stalls available, we actually went for something to eat. I had the choice of deciding that day due to me being pregnant (don’t come between a pregnant woman and her food) so naturally, my hormones decided on the pizza and pasta place. Now, it wasn’t great.. But it was filling, reasonably priced for a theme park and fast.

I N D U L G E • pizza, pasta, Pepsi and much more. We managed to eat this and explore the zoo before the boys went back onto the rides – perfect!A post shared by Tilly (@sheandlife) on Jul 21, 2017 at 1:41pm PDT
How gorgeous are these little guys? We visited on a dreary day where the weather wouldn’t make up its mind – it was sunny and warm, then we got drenched in a monsoon the next moment so we didn’t see a lot of the big cats.. But the primates didn’t hide away, they were out and drawing the crowds simply by being themselves.
Now, I know you want to know about the rides – but you’ll have to wait for our upcoming vlog for that one. Keep an eye on my YouTube channel, or watch out on Twitter as I’ll announce it when it goes live!
