Pod Squad Gaze To God At Alton Towers
Visitors to Alton Towers Resort in 2019 can get closer to nature, and wonder at the night sky, by booking a stay at the theme park’s Stargazing Pods.
The camping-style Pods are minimally furnished and sleep up to four people so that families, couples and groups can enjoy an outdoor adventure in the Staffordshire countryside just moments away from their favourite rides and attractions.
The camp of 102 Pods will be located next to the Enchanted Village at the South East corner of the Resort with each boasting a 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. A communal block offers toilets, accessible showers and baby changing facilities.
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 join four other hotels at Alton Towers, including the world’s only CBeebies Land Hotel which opened in July 2017. They are priced from £88 per night off-peak and £123 in peak season. Details from: www.altontowers.com/.
