Alton Towers Theme Park
In Alton Towers we experience the thrills of speed. We had such an amazing time on all the rides from the Runaway Mine Train, Spinball Whizzer, Oblivion, Rita and much much more!
During the week we enjoyed different fun activities such as Tenpin bowling, table tennis, air hockey and also loved playing racing games on the amusements.
We took the cable car to the top of the Heights of Abraham. Once there we saw stunning views of the Derwent Valley and surrounding Peak District. We also enjoyed visiting the Victoria Prospect Tower, the Masson Cavern and the Tinker's Shaft.
We took a beautiful stream train journey through the Derbyshire countryside. At the last stop we had a delicious lunch in the quaint station restaurant.
We also visited the town of Bakewell which is very famous for puddings. In the 19th century a cook at the Rutland Arms was baking a jam tart but misunderstood the recipe and so Bakewell Pudding was created.
We had a fantastic time at the Chatsworth House and gardens. We explored many of the magnificent rooms in this historical mansion and wandered through the beautiful gardens.
We had a truly amazing holiday full of fun and laugher!
