Nestled in acres of beautiful Staffordshire countryside, Alton Towers Resort is the perfect setting to add a little magic to your corporate events.
While widely known as the UK’s most loved theme park, the Alton Towers Resort is home to a fantastic array of unique and creative event spaces purposely built for event professionals to mix business with heaps of fun alongside its world class rides and attractions.
As the centrepiece of the resort’s offerings, the Alton Towers Conference Centre sits within easy access of all the attractions that the resort has to offer, combining flexible spaces with outstanding facilities. Situated on the building’s first floor, Sir Algenon’s Lounge is a naturally ideal welcome area to greet delegates upon arrival and serve refreshments before moving to the meeting room.
The resort’s largest available space, the Stateroom, can provide larger conferences and presentations for up to 500 delegates, with easy access for suppliers. Not only does the room have ample floorspace and facilities, it also includes an outdoor patio where delegates can grab a breath of fresh air during breaks and also includes a bar for use during private dinners. The Stateroom can be split into three sections for smaller events.
Also located in the Conference Centre are eight syndicate rooms, ideal for splitting off into smaller groups or for standalone smaller meetings or private dining. Located on the ground floor of the Alton Towers Hotel is the Emperor Suite with a capacity of up to 200 for a meeting and 130 for a dinner. Adjacent to the suite is the Dragon Bar, ideal for refreshment breaks or pre-dinner drinks. Just like the Stateroom, the room also divides into three smaller rooms.
The Resort has its own catering team who provide a wide range of menus including bespoke options if required. Dinner can be taken in one of the meeting rooms privately or alternatively in one of the Resort’s restaurants. In the Alton Towers Hotel, the Secret Garden Restaurant seats in excess of 300 people and is an ideal venue for conference lunches and dinner. You’ll also have access to the nearby Dragon Bar and is situated very close to the Emperor’s Suite.
At the Splash Landings Hotel, Flambo’s Jambo’s is a 300-seat buffet-style restaurant with a variety of dishes from around the world. In the same hotel, there is Ma Garrita’s Bar where delegates can drink cocktails as they look out over the Waterpark. The UK’s first Rollercoaster Restaurant situated a short walk away from the hotel provides a more unique dining experience for planners seeking more informality, where delegates can watch their meals spiral down towards their table on rollercoaster tracks.
With over 50 world class rides and attractions dotted across the resort, any event taking place at the resort needing a fun twist can easily be catered for. Alton Towers Resort has several generic packages to structure your day around. But don’t worry if there’s something missing, there is also a range of optional add-ons to ensure that you hold a fantabulous corporate event.
With access to the entire resort, planners can also work closely with innovative team building professionals on hand to help groups design their own activities across the theme park or in the hotels. Fast paced and designed to optimise motivation initiatives, the popular Alton Quest is a mainstay addition to the team building programme, elevating the traditional treasure hunt with high tech tablets for delegates to share team selfies and take on video challenges together.
For a little more friendly competition, the Extraordinary Golf course lets groups test their skills across imaginative obstacle courses based on the famous venue rides and attractions, while the luxurious Alton Towers Spa allows groups to relax and unwind with exclusive use of the Aqua Relaxation Room available to hire for up to 40 delegates.
After all the work and play, Alton Towers Resort still has plenty of space for delegates to rest their heads. A total of 516 bedrooms available across three themed hotels make up the resort’s quirky accommodation, with the Enchanted Village providing a unique outdoor setting to escape to woodland lodges and luxury treehouses.
Sitting conveniently between the M1 and M6 motorways with Uttoxeter and Stoke- on-Trent train stations under 30 minutes’ drive away, Alton Towers Resort is a well-connected venue with a range of packages enabling delegates to enjoy a truly unique venue.
