The theme park which is located in Staffordshire at the heart of the UK is the biggest in the country and has around 2.1 million visitors enjoying all it has to offers every year, which was report in 2018. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, the Alton Towers Resort was open all year round, but the theme park itself shuts during the winter and reopens during the spring. The resort includes a spa, a water-park, various restaurants and bars and more. Prices for tickets depends on how many days you will be going to the resort for and there are single-day passes or seasonal passes that we will be covering in this article.
