    Our 2020 TowersStreet Meet Up Calendar is now available in order to help everyone wishing to come on one of our meets with diary planning for the year!

    If you are new to TS, or thinking about coming on one of our meets for the very first time, then you are most welcome. Our meets are informal and fun - and about getting to know like-minded people for rides, food and drink! Many of our meets involve overnight stays but this is not essential! Remember - we also have mini meets throughout the year which are often smaller, and these can be a great way to test the water before coming on one of our official, larger meets.

    For accommodation at Alton Towers please book through Merlin Holiday Club if you have an Merlin Annual Pass!

    We will have full discussion topics for each meetup available nearer the time.

    I'll be at York, but I'm surprise LWV is not involved.

    We did consider LWV, however we did do it last time and it was absolutely awful. You'd be much better off heading up on an off peak day rather than a bank holiday weekend if you want to grab your Ultimate fix :)

    For those wanting to do LWV, you could always go on the Sunday.

    No meet planned at the southern parks this year? :(

    I'll definitely be at the opening meet. I'm not sure about the others at the moment.

    We didn't see much of a demand for a southern parks meet this year (last year's was relatively quiet), and with the cost of two north meets we didn't feel a need to have one this year.

    That said, many will no doubt be heading down for Paulton's and there'll likely be some sort of mini meet for that. Remember the official meets only form a small part of what everyone is up to each season :)

    Another York meet! :D It was such a good trip up there when we last did it a few years back.

    Other than that, also hopefully will get to Blackpool this year, and Fireworks as usual!

    I’m aiming to make the majority, if not all of them, and like a few others I’ll be aiming to make my maiden voyage to LWV at some point during the North meet.

    As the York trips are mainly drinking on at least one day, that'd need to be Saturday to allow people to stay over and not drive that day.

    @Craig Ah that makes sense. I might head up to LWV on the Saturday myself though, financially better for me :p

    As Craig says - the choice of York is as much about the fact it is a beautiful city with lots of things to do.
