Alton Towers Tours and Activities

Alton Towers
Alton Towers is a theme park in central England that is famous for its hair-raising rides. Opened in the 1980s, the park quickly became one of the most popular days out in the UK. Visit to enjoy a variety of roller coasters and a water park, as well as mini golf and other family-friendly fun.

The Basics
Once a stately home owned by the earls of Shrewsbury, Alton Towers has been open to the public since the 1950s. In the 1980s, the pleasure gardens and lake were given an update with the addition of several rides, including the Corkscrew roller coaster, the Pirate Ship, and the Log Flume ride. Many new rides have been added over the years, from the Nemesis, which dangles riders’ feet in the air, to Thirteen, a super-charged ghost train. 

The site also includes an indoor water park, a relaxation spa, and several themed hotels, plus individual wooden “Star-Gazing” sleeping pods. Visitors can spend just one day at the theme park or opt for a weekend package that includes access to all the attractions.
