Which Are The Nearest Hotels To UK Theme Parks

Nearest Hotels To UK Theme Parks gives you all of the information you need for the perfect Day Out and staying over options to ensure you make the most of your time.

Our large family ADORES Theme Parks, living in East Anglia, there are a few theme parks near us, but many of the best theme parks in UK mean we have to travel a fair distance, and nobody wants to travel for 3 or 4 hours before the day has even begun.

Its tiring and there is always a risk that you will encounter traffic problems and end up missing half of the theme park opening hours.

Therefore it makes sense to book a hotel close to the Theme Park and enjoy a whole day at the park without worrying.

It can take quite a while to find the nearest hotels to UK theme parks, but do not fear, as I have done all of the hard work for you!

Adventure Island Nearest Hotels To UK Theme Parks

Adventure island has the best staff of any theme park I’ve been to, they are so enthusiastic that they put staff at the bigger theme parks to shame.

Instead of paying an entry price, you buy a wrist band that allows you to go on the rides suitable for your height (or the level of adrenaline you prefer!) so you pay less for smaller children, plus an adult can ride for free with a child under 1.2m.

Their big roller coaster, Rage, is a favourite now our children are older but they’ve loved going since they were 2 and 4. Me Them and The Others

Alton Towers Nearest Hotels To UK Theme Parks

Alton Towers is our family’s favourite theme park. We have been visiting since my children were small and we love that there is so much to entertain all ages!

My 11 year old loves the thrill rides, while my daughter’s favourite is the runaway mine train which she has a record of riding eight consecutive times!

The shows in CBeebies land were fantastic for chill out time when the children were younger too! As well as the tides we always take the opportunity to explore the castle and ground too, usually taking a picnic to enjoy in the vast gardens!

The sky ride is a unique offering of this park that gives us fabulous views of the park and surrounding area! My Mummys Pennies

They have some fab thrill rides including the newly opened Icon which is brilliant. It also has the old traditional wooden roller coasters so you get a great dose of nostalgia too. A brilliant day out for all ages . Twinderelmo

Blackgang Chine Nearest Hotels To UK Theme Parks

Not one for a rainy day, Blackgang Chine is an outdoor attraction with little scope to hide from the rain.

Blackgang Chine is a place I remember from my own childhood. In many ways, it hasn’t changed at all. In a world where everything is interactive, Blackgang Chine is still heavily reliant on children making their own fun.

Don’t let that put you off though, as it is a fabulous day out for young children with a good imagination.

There are several lands where kids can go under the sea, or visit the wild west. They have more recently taken on a whole exhibit of full of true-to-size animatronic dinosaurs.

It’s a very well done and entertaining with amusing signage for the older crowd, and a great attraction for a little dinosaur lover (although I did have to assure my oldest they weren’t real).

My children loved it; at 4.5 and almost 3 they are the perfect age for a lot of it and I’d recommend it without hesitation to families with children of similar ages. Whinge Whinge Wine

Brean Leisure Park is a traditional seaside attraction with rides and an arcade.
It is a little worn and old fashioned in the way that seaside attractions tend to be, and it wasn’t very busy (read: we were pretty much the only people there) when we visited, even though it was the Easter school holidays.

Brean Theme Park is free to enter, and the rides cost between £2 and £4 each, or you can buy a wristband for unlimited rides if planning to spend all day there. There are rides suitable for any age group from toddlers to adults.

Brean Theme Park is also the home of Sooty, and every day you can meet Sooty at 11 when the park opens, and then watch the free Sooty Show at 2pm. Whinge Whinge Wine

Crealy Theme Park

Crealy Theme Park Nearest Hotels To UK Theme Parks

We love Crealy Adventure! There is so much to do for children of all ages plus plenty of space for quiet picnics if you need to get away from all the noise for an hour.

One of our favourite activities is walking along the stream and going over all the different bridges and locking each other in the pretend jail! Just as much fun as all the big rides.

They also run an offer where you can return for free within seven days, just need to get your picture taken before you leave. Savvy In Somerset

Diggerland Devon has 20 different rides and drives and an array of additional activities. There are picnic tables located on the grounds to bring your own picnic.

We particularly liked where they were placed so we could sit down for a snack while we watched the others on the rides.

For little ones there is a Little Tikes area, with the cars, playhouses, and a water table. The indoor area has a soft play and cafe. It’s a great day out for all the family. Rachel Bustin

You even get to meet the fat controller! For the adrenaline junky teens and adults there are some heart-stopping fast rides to keep them occupied for hours.

As well as all this there’s a great zoo and play area – perfect spot for a picnic and to take a breather from all that screaming! Lots of on-site eateries too if you forget your packed lunch. You ideally need two full days to get around everything on offer. Pack the PJs

Flamingo land in the heart of North Yorkshire is perfect for all ages from tiny tots to teenagers. My 18 month old loved it just as much as the older children as there are plenty of smaller rides. With bigger roller coasters for teenagers & adults.

There’s also a Zoo so even if you’re not into rides (elderly or pregnant for example) it’s still a brilliant day out. In the summer don’t forget there is a large outside water area with loads of sprinklers and fountains to run through, so remember a towel!

Great Yarmouth pleasure beach is a fantastic family day out. You can buy wristbands to ride all day and it is perfect if not all of the family members want to ride, as a lot of theme parks charge for entry, even if you do not want to go on anything.

It also allows dogs on leads which is great for us as we like to take our dogs with us as much as possible. It also has a lovely sandy beach for picnics so makes a fab family day out. Mum On A Mission For A Better Life

GreenWood Family Park (previously known as GreenWood Forest Park) is a fabulous outdoor, eco-friendly adventure park. It’s very chilled-out with no noise, stress, crowds, commercialism or expensive admission prices!

Visiting GreenWood is such a pleasurable experience. It’s an eco-friendly park, surrounded by trees and wildlife. In 2010 it was listed by The Guardian’s ‘Green Travel List’ as one of the top 7 top green attractions in the world, which is quite a feat, and it was also awarded the Green Award in the North Wales Tourism Awards in 2016.

Most of the attractions are eco-friendly too. We love the Green Dragon Family Roller Coaster which is the world’s only people powered coaster and another favourite is the Solar Splash, the first solar-powered ride in the UK! Definitely worth a trip if you’re visiting North Wales!! Typical Mummy

We’ve been regulars at Gulliver’s World in Warrington for years now. It’s perfect for mini Theme Park fans! If your child is under 8, they are sure to have a great day.

I have been going to landmark since I was a child. If you are looking for outdoor family fun in the highlands there is no other place to go.

From the red squirrel tree top nature trail to the wild water coaster! It is a full day of fun! There is that much to do you will struggle to fit it all in to one trip.

If you you get the chance had to butterfly house and see how many different butterfly’s you can count! Honestly the best family theme park in the highland! Miss LJ Beauty

Southport Pleasureland Nearest Hotels To UK Theme Parks

Southport Pleasureland is only down the road from us and we love it because it’s a cheap way to spend a family fun day out in our local area. It’s free to get in and to access rides you load a ‘Funcard’ with money.

Each ride only costs a £1, and if you don’t use all the money on your card, you can save it til next time. They’re fine about you bringing a picnic too to make the day even cheaper! Mummy To Dex

Sundown Adventureland is one of the best value days out you will find for under 10s. It’s cheesy but my kids love it.

Loads of kid-friendly rides and attractions, and a full day of stuff to do both inside and out.  Kids Days Out Reviews

Milky Way is great for rainy days especially. There’s huge softplay, dodgems and a new scooter laser shooting blast ride, not forgetting all the Star Wars displays.

There’s activities for all ages, most is included in the entrance fee, and if you’ve under 5s, you’re especially well catered for. We spent 3 hours there, and didn’t touch the surface of everything there. BubbaBlue and Me

Thorpe Park is definitely one for the thrill seekers, it’s based on its own island and has 30 rides, attractions and live events.

With popular attractions from well known franchises such as the walking dead, saw, angry birds and derren brown you can transport yourself to the exciting worlds they derive from.

With 15 family rides you’ll have fun no matter what the age of your guests but I certainly recommend a height of 1.4m to enjoy the experience to the fullest. Alice In Sheffield

We love Twinlakes as a great family theme park especially for slightly younger ones who would struggle with the bigger parks.

It ticks so many boxes as has a huge indoor play areas, rides, a farm park and a fantastic water park in the summer too. So much to do and there are often theme days where you can meet popular children’s characters. Mummy 2 Twindividuals

Wheelgate is located in Nottinghamshire and is the sister park to Twinlakes. It is smaller than Twinlakes but there is still plenty there to fill a full day.

They have installed a really fun wooden adventure playground and there’s a lovely farm area which children will love.

Some of the rides have height restrictions but most are suitable for all. If it’s a warm day make sure you take your swimmers as there’s a great water park at Wheelgate.

As a family we love Wicksteed Park! It is free to enter but uses wristbands/tickets for the rides.

Meaning you can make the day as cheap (or expensive) as you like. There is plenty to do from a ride on the carousel to watching Meerkats! The Mum Diaries

Woodlands in Devon is amazing. I have two year old twins and a four year old and we can happily spend a day there and never get round to doing everything.

There’s a dinosaur section which obviously is the best thing ever to three boys. My eldest loves the waterslides (mum, not so much as I seem to get SOAKED every time) and the toboggan, and this summer has suddenly got braver and is going on the pirate ship and Vertigo which flings you up in the air.

I chickened out of that one. The little ones love the animals and the smaller rides, and they all love the two indoor soft play areas. They’re massive. Such a great day out. Twins, Tantrums & Cold Coffee

  1. What a brilliant post! So useful. This is something I find really stressful about planning days out as it takes up so much time. Thanks for doing all the leg work and saving so much time for people.
