A Guide To...Alton Towers

Alton Towers is the most popular theme park in the UK, with many exciting roller coasters and attractions, making it a perfect day out for a gang of mates or all the family. Its central location means that it is easy to get to from pretty much all of England, Wales and Scotland. The Park is divided in to 13 different areas, all with a themed edge. The place to hit first is the 'X-Sector', home to the infamous Oblivion, with a vertical drop that will leave you questioning how you survived. The 'Forbidden Valley' houses the 'Nemesis' another thrill-a-minute fun-feast; other infamous rides include the 'Corkscrew' and the 'Hex'.

When's it Open?

Everyday from 1st April to 29th October from the early hour of 9.30am to as late as 7pm in peak times.

This is an excellent opportunity to book for cheap prices, which can be done online via, www.alton-towers.co.uk. Not only that you get the added bonus of the 'advance booking bonus', entitling you to exclusive ride time, before they open, book tickets to shows and the ability to get straight through those turnstiles and on the rides. Another way to cut costs is to go on lower price days where you can save up to 25% on all tickets.

How Do I get there?

It is easy to get to by car or by rail, from the M1, take Junction 23a if coming from the north or junction28 from the South, from the M6 take Junction 15 from the North, Junction 16 if from the south. Once you turn off keep those eyes peeled for signposts and it should be easy enough to find. During its opening season Midland Mainline and Virgin Trains offer a discount rail package.
