New Stargazing Pods

Enjoy a night under the stars in 2019 at Alton Towers Stargazing Pods

Visitors to Alton Towers Resort next year can get closer to nature, and wonder at the night sky, by booking a stay at the new Alton Towers Stargazing Pods. The camping-style Pods are minimally furnished and sleep up to four people. So families, couples and groups of friends can now enjoy an outdoor adventure in the Staffordshire countryside sleeping just moments away from their favourite rides and attractions.

The camp of 102 Pods offer the most affordable way to stay at Alton Towers Resort and are located next to the Enchanted Village, at the South East corner of the Resort. Each pod contains one double and two single beds. They also have heating, charging points and WiFi, as well as under-bed storage and a small terrace. The Pods are arranged around ‘the green’ where children can play or use the telescopes to study the night sky.

Launching the Pods, Divisional Director for Alton Towers Resort, Ian Crabbe said; “More and more families are looking for affordable UK short-breaks where they can spend quality time together, try new things and enjoy their favourite destinations. Alton Towers Stargazing Pods offer a truly unique experience: the chance to spend the night under the stars in our beautiful countryside setting and enjoy all that Alton Towers Resort has to offer.”

The Stargazing Pods are available to book for Spring and Summer and join four other hotels at Alton Towers, including the world’s only CBeebies Land Hotel which opened in July 2017. Overnight guests can gain early entry to the theme park and enjoy the restaurants and entertainment across the Resort.
