A million apologies… We are currently performing an extensive update across the entire website and as such some pages may not behave as expected.
The Alton Towers Resort is one of the world’s leading theme park resorts. Set within 800 acres of stunning countryside, the resort provides a fantastic short break or a great day out for the whole family.

Set around the historic Alton Towers Estate – the former seat of the Earls of Shrewsbury – the Resort has slowly evolved from a venture set up by local businessmen in 1924 to turn the gardens into a tourist attraction, into the thriving theme park resort we see today.

Home to some of the world’s most iconic rides and attractions, including Nemesis, Air, Oblivion, Thirteen and most recently The Smiler (the world’s first fourteen looping roller coaster), the park has established a reputation for providing both thrills and fun.

2014 sees the introduction of a new family area, CBeebies Land, ensuring that visitors of all ages can have a magical day at the resort. In addition to the theme park itself, the Alton Towers Hotel, Splash Landings Hotel and Waterpark, Crazy Golf and the Alton Towers Spa provide something for everyone to enjoy, regardless of age.
