Alton Towers in set the beautiful Staffordshire countryside and is due to re-open soon on the 22 March 2014.   As Alton Towers is so large we find it best to split our action packed adventure over a couple of days, we then move on in our rental motorhome to a family friendly campsite near the sea to enjoying the beaches, swimming and evening entertainment before heading home to #essex. For more information on Alton Towers and prices www.altontowers.com
