Alton Towers Introduction

The home of heart-thumping Oblivion, the intergalactic rollercoaster tracks of Galactica, the rattling Runaway Mine Train and the mind-boggling rooms of Hex, Alton Towers still reigns supreme on the UK's line-up of theme parks. You can bag Alton Towers hotels to conquer the scream-inducing loop-de-loops or to defy gravity on those daring free-drop rides. Or, you could just come to enjoy a day of family fun, splashing in the water parks, meeting the snappers in Sharkbait Reef, dodging the ghouls in the Haunted House – the list goes on.

Hotels near Alton Towers

There are plenty of Alton Towers hotels that have access to the rollercoasters right on their doorstep. You can find family rooms in the grand resort hotel that sits inside the grounds of the theme park – you're bound to be one of the first riding the twists and turns of Nemesis in the morning. Alternatively, you could look to the pretty countryside of Hampshire that unfolds all around. Hearty inns, homey pubs and family owned B&Bs are everywhere there, dotting the streets of historic villages or hidden behind pretty English gardens on the county roads. During school holiday periods these hotels book up fast and prices are often at their highest – especially over summer.

Where to stay near Alton Towers

If you've got your sights set only on the rollercoasters and rattling rides, then there's arguably nowhere better to bed down than inside Alton Towers itself. With dedicated rooms that are all well-suited to families, it means waking up with the attractions just outside your door. The nearby town of Alton is another alternative. It's got plenty of homey, pub-style stays and low-key hotels between its pedestrianised shopping streets and Gothic churches. There are even more places within driving distance to the west, where the leafy village of Oakamoor and larger Cheadle offer B&Bs and hearty country lodges.

Things to see near Alton Towers

If you still haven't got the adrenaline pumping enough after the rides of Alton Towers, you can always head just an hour to the south to unearth the swinging pirate ships and roaring dinosaur attractions of another of the UK's top theme parks: Drayton Manor. For something altogether different, you can pull on the walking boots and stroll the green hills and babbling rivers of the beautiful Dovedale Valley. The Peak District hides just to the north, too. That's one of the top hiking destinations in the whole country, brimming with fells and moors for the adventurers.

How to get to Alton Towers

Alton Towers is well-connected to towns and cities right across the UK by the M6 and M1 motorways, each running south-north on either side of the attraction.

Coaches operate services across Staffordshire to link towns directly to the rides, too, while it's also possible to get shuttle buses from nearby villages like Alton – they can take as little as 15 minutes to get you to the ticket booths.
