Save Money at Alton Towers!

Times are tough for most people right now but everyone needs to let their hair down every now and again!  A day or two at Alton Towers is a great way to have fun and get away from it all.  If you need to take a break why not consider a visit to the theme park?  If you plan your trip in advance there are plenty of ways to save money when you visit Alton Towers. 

Here are just a few things you might like to consider:

Save money on Alton Towers tickets by purchasing in advance online
OR find a money off voucher if you want to purchase tickets on the day at the gate.
If your a group do you qualify for a discount?

Travelling by car?  Get a money off fuel voucher (Tesco have them at the moment) and save money when you fill up your fuel tank.

Travelling by public transport?  If you book train journeys in advance you can often get a cheaper ticket. 
If the last part of your journey to Alton village is by bus would a taxi be cheaper if there are a few of you travelling together?

Service stations are expensive so why not make a picnic to eat when you take a break during your journey.

The cost of soft drinks, sweets and snacks can add up!  Purchase a few treats from your local supermarket to bring with you.

Stay with us at The Malthouse B&B for a few nights.  We offer great bed and breakfast accommodation just one mile from Alton Towers!  Our delicious breakfasts will fill you up and keep you going for hours.  Many of our guests say that after one of our breakies they don't need to eat much until teatime!      

Walking around Alton Towers can be thirsty work!  You can purchase a soft drinks capsule at the theme park that can be refilled all day for free.  A great deal on a hot day!

We always hope that the weather will be kind to our guests BUT if it's not (or you want to avoid getting wet on the water rides at Alton Towers!) you can purchase a waterproof poncho from us at The Malthouse for just £2.50.  Alton Towers Ponchos are £6!

If you like your grub consider purchasing an Alton Towers Food Voucher OR All Day Dining Package.  These can be a great way to save pounds on food.  Some of the packages include a refillable drinks capsules and a free game of extraordinary golf!  Reductions are given for kids vouchers/packages.

If you want to take a picnic lunch to the theme park you can.  A cool box/bag to keep your lunch fresh would be a good idea!      

If you want to visit Alton Towers Waterpark save 50% by visiting after 4pm!  If your coming to stay with us at The Malthouse B&B and plan to arrive at 4pm a visit to the Waterpark might be a great way to start your break.  Don't forget to bring your swimming trunks/costumes and towels!

Visit the Alton Towers website for details of their latest offers.

We appreciate that going away can be expensive BUT if you plan in advance and keep a look out for offers there are plenty of ways to save a few pounds when visiting Alton Towers.
