Hi, I wonder if anyone can help me. I have (foolishy) planted the idea in my friends heads that it would be fun t go to Alton Towers for the weekend, so we are. In April for three nights. We are flying into East Midlands Airport. We were gonna stay in a bnb near Alton Towers, but this may be a bad idea as Alton Towers seems to ne in the middle of nowhere so there wouldnt be much to do when it closes. Can anyone recommend a hotel that is in a town ( think Derby or Stoke are the closest) that would suit me. There are four of us travelling and not one of us has a clue.
