Pictures of Alton Towers Theme Park

a Theme Park in the town of Alton, in the county of Staffordshire

About Alton Towers Theme Park

Alton Towers is the number one theme park in England. Dating back to the Victorian times, Alton Towers closed during the outbreak of World War 2 in 1939 as it was requisitioned by the army for Officer Cadet Training and was not handed back until 1951. It became a theme park in 1980 and has rides, attractions and fun for all the family including toddlers. Being one of the most popular day out destinations in the UK, some of the more popular rides can sometimes have very large queues and it can pay to pre-book them.
