Manchester to Alton Towers - Best way to get there?

Im travelling from Dublin to Manchester and staying in Manchester for the weekend. I'm planning on visiting Alton Towers but not sure of the best way to get there. I won't have access to a car so is there a train or bus that will bring me from Manchester city to Alton?

Alton Towers is about 50 miles away from Manchester.

By Rail

For train times and fares, call National Rail enquiries on 08457 48 49 50. (24 hrs, call may be recorded, local call rate applies).

One of the nearest train stations is Uttoxeter and they used to have a shuttle bus to Alton Towers.

A safer bet might be Stoke-on-Trent Station.More likely to have buses operating from there.

(Apparently the shuttle bus from Stafford station has been stopped since last year)

When are you planning to visit? If you have a few weeks and want me to find out about buses from the train stations for definite,I'd be happy ask around for you.

Hi, thanks for the replies!

We're planning on going on Saturday 14th (for Valentines!)

I will check out those sites and hopefully find some info from there!

Thanks again!
