Alton Towers Waterpark
Best for: short breaks and staycations
Feel like you’re beachside in the Caribbean (sort of) at Splashing Landings Hotel in Alton Towers, where, thanks to its themed water park, you can pretend you’re holidaying abroad and not in Stoke-on-Trent. Inside, you’ll find a Master Blaster ride, a waterfall in Lagoona Bay and the interactive Wacky Waterworks, that’ll keep little’uns entertained with water cannons, buckets and wheels. In the summer months, there’s an outdoor section including a soothing ‘Bubbly Wubbly’ pool and the Flash Floods outdoor flume adventure. Entry to the waterpark isn’t included with a standard Alton Towers ticket, but it’s worth adding on to extend your theme-park staycation for another day.
£18.50. Alton Towers Waterpark, Alton Towers Resort, Alton, England ST10 4DB.
