When are the UK Summer holidays?

The UK School Holidays 2019 fall between 15th July and 6th September. Exact term and holiday dates may vary by school and location, but we’ll be open to welcome families and thrillseekers all summer long!


How to maximise your time during School Holidays

School holidays and bank holiday weekends are popular times for people to visit Alton Towers resort. To make the most of your visit during busy periods we recommend arriving early and leaving the most popular rides until last. You may also want to consider buying fastrack tickets to beat the queues.

As a hotel guest on a summer holiday break, you can enjoy early ride times on selected rides and, of course, you can explore the park over two whole days!


Can I book a last minute Summer break?

We recommend booking early, to avoid disappointment and to make the most of our advanced booking offers.

If you decide to book a spontaneous, last minute getaway and can’t find your ideal room with us, take a look at our partner hotels. Stay nearby in a hotel or guesthouse near Alton Towers and you can still benefit from a free 2nd day at the theme park. It’s never too late to book an adrenaline-filled Summer break.
