Alton Towers has revealed that Christmas is returning to the resort with two new enchanting experiences in the gardens this year, beginning in November.
Visitors will get the chance to enjoy family rides and attractions, meet Father Christmas, take part in Santa’s Sleepover and visit Santa’s Woodland Grotto.
On selected dates throughout November and December, guests can enjoy an overnight stay as part of Santa’s Sleepover in one of the resort’s hotels or lodges.
Each stay includes a festive evening meal, as well as a visit to Santa’s Woodland Grotto, where each child will receive a special gift and souvenir photo with Father Christmas.
New additions this year include ‘Garden Lights Walk: Twinkling Stars’ and ‘Garden Lantern Trail’, which are both outdoor attractions in light of COVID-19.
