Compare prices and save with our ticket comparison.

We’ve rounded up the best options for you to compare prices, availability and ticket types.

Why compare?

  • It’s not always cheaper to go direct (for example, we found a saving on a family ticket of £8 with one ticket provider over going to Alton Towers directly.
  • GetYourGuide are the only ticket provider offering free cancellation up to 24 hours before. This could be hugely beneficial when you think of weather or other unforeseen circumstances. And it was the same price as going direct.
  • Offers for different ticket providers changes regularly. 
  • Some ticket providers offer extra value. For example, Picniq offer a £5 voucher to use on your next order.
  • Availability on dates varies going direct and with third party ticket providers. We even found available dates with one ticket provider that was not available.
  • Booking direct does usually provide more options for special events (Scarefest, for example)

Alton Towers Scarefest

5th – 6th, 12th – 13th, 18th October – 3rd November

This unmissable event takes place on selected dates in October/November when the Resort becomes home to Halloween. Open until late so you can enjoy your favourite rides in the dark!

About Alton Towers

With many of the UK’s big park attractions found in the south of England, Alton Towers is more-easily accessible to the rest of the island’s thrill-seekers. Perhaps that’s why it’s the UK’s most visited theme park.

It has a fair reputation for white-knuckle rides with some of the world’s best rollercoasters including Air, Nemesis and Oblivion. However, there is loads to do for kids of all ages, and with recent additions like CBeebies Land younger children will not miss out.

The huge resort has grown its accommodation options recently with the opening of the Enchanted Village with its lodges and treehouses.

Where is Alton Towers?

Alton Towers Resort is between the M1 and the M6, about 15 miles east of Stoke-on-Trent. There is no train station nearby, so visitors arriving by public transport come by bus either from Stoke or Uttoxeter, though services are limited.

What age range is best?

Of 40 different rides available at Alton Towers, seven require the rider to be at least 1.4 metres high and a further six require them to be over 1 metre. The park attracts a lot of families with over 8s but there is still plenty that under 8s will enjoy – though perhaps not as much as at Legoland.
