Entrance to The World of David Walliams

Characters and stories from David Walliams' series of children's books are brought to life in The World of David Walliams at Alton Towers.

The land sits in an area behind the Towers buildings, and is dressed in a colourful cartoon style. If you're lucky, there will be beefeaters and bearskin capped soldiers on hand to welcome you too.

Gangsta Granny: The Ride is the headline attraction, taking visitors on a tour of the Crown Jewels housed inside the Royal Alton Hall.

Two other rides have been rethemed since the area formed part of Cloud Cuckoo Land: There's The Royal Carousel featuring a choice of horses and carriages to ride, while Raj's Bouncy Bottom Burp is a junior bouncing drop tower for small children.

Also worth a look inside is Raj's Shop, a nicely themed gift shop based on the newsagents found in the Gangsta Granny story.


Food and Shopping


Construction on The World of David Walliams began towards the end of the 2019 season, with temporary walls and fencing appearing around Cloud Cuckoo Land.
