The Towers ruins

The Towers ruins sit at the very heart of Alton Towers, providing a beautiful and unique centrepiece for the theme park.

Originally the ancestral home of the Earl of Shewsbury, what remains of the once magnificent Gothic mansion are now open for the public to explore at selected times of year. They also play host to Hex: The Legend of the Towers, a spectacular ride which re-tells a local legend involving one of the former Earls.

Near to the Towers themselves visitors will find the Woodcutter's Bar and Grill restaurant in Fountain Square, which offers a variety of meals in its indoor seating area. Further behind the Towers lies The Alton Towers Dungeon providing a 45 minute live action experience deep inside Alton's murky past.

Beside the Dungeon is a huge sit down Burger Kitchen restaurant for those needing a fast food fix. Guests looking for a quick way to get across the park will find one end of the Skyride in the area too, offering fast transportation to both Forbidden Valley and Towers Street.

The Ruins

When they are not being used for Scarefest mazes the Towers ruins are often open for visitors to explore, and the roof offers some spectacular views across the Staffordshire countryside. Various restoration projects are often underway to restore parts of the building to its original grandeur.
