Getaway with your families for a Santa's Sleepover and enjoy the ultimate short break this festive season.

Have a short break booked before 25th April? We can move your stay date with no extra cost!

Further to recent updates from the Government on the response to the Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak, we have taken the very difficult decision to close Alton Towers Resort as a precautionary measure.

For guests with short breaks arriving up to and including 25th April 2020, we have relaxed our usual terms and conditions so you can now reschedule your break to another date in the 2020 season with no additional cost*

Please visit the Manage My Booking site and complete the booking amendment form, including your booking reference and the preferred date you would like to rearrange your booking to. Our team will get back to you as soon as possible.

We look forward to welcoming you to Alton Towers Resort soon. Thank you for your patience.

*Subject to availability, please provide 3 alternative dates in order of preference, dates allocated on a first come first served basis. Please note – if you have booked a partner Hotel (a Hotel off site), most will honour the price you booked at, however there are a small number which cannot, we will let you know based on the dates you choose.
