Ever wondered what the park looked like 15 or 25 years ago? Here are the guidebooks from yesteryear, which contain many photographs and lots of information about the park, years before it evolved into what it is today.
The pre-war guidebook was used up until the park was commandeered by the army during WW2, giving some insight into the Towers before they became ruins.
This guide was used after the installation of a fairground and a motor boat attraction, back when Alton Towers was a different type of day out to what it is today.
This was the first guidebook produced in full colour, with versions advertising the park’s price in both decimal and pre-decimal currency.
This Leaflet tells you about some of the history of the Towers that can’t be found in any other guide, and also lists the park’s opening times and attraction information.
This year’s new ride was the 4 Man Bob coaster, with this guide being more focused on the rides, although it still featured a section on the heritage of Alton Towers.
