Best Things To Do & Days Out In Tamworth

There are many cool and unusual things to do in Tamworth, starting with exploring Thomas Land at Drayton Manor Theme Park, right at the top of the list.

If you need any more reasons to take the kids to Drayton Manor, just know it’s not only one of the best theme parks in the UK, but it’s also home to some of the top-rated kids’ theme park rides in the country. Sounds impressive, doesn’t it? 

Ever wished it could be winter all year round? Well, at Tamworth Snowdome, you can enjoy a snowy white winter any time you like. Strap on your skis and take on the 170m-ski run, take the family ice-skating, tobogganing or tubing. There are lots of opportunities for high-energy fun! Plus, it’s been ranked amongst the best places to go indoor skiing in the UK.

If you’re looking for a family day out classic, then take your mini knights and princesses to Tamworth Castle; it’s located right in the city centre, so it’s easy to get to, as well.
