Area History
The entrance to the park has not always been known as Towers Street. In fact, prior to 1984 there was no street at all. The entrance moved to where it is today in 1985 and was called the 'Grand Entrance'. Even though you walked down the very street you do today, there were no buildings on either side and guests simply strolled in walking towards Aqua Land.

By 1986 the basis of the Towers Street we see today was complete. There was the Visitor Information block, also known as Guest Services, as well as a toy fair and novelty boutiques. The restaurant at the bottom of Towers Street was opened and named Bagshaw's Restaurant. 1986 was also the year that the legendary frog fountains were installed which was to be the focal point of the area for over 20 years.

1987 was a very promising time for Towers Street as both the Monorail and Sky Ride stations we see today were introduced. The Medical Centre was also installed as well as a host of other attractions such as the Wedgwood Exhibition as the park really signalled its intent for the future.

By 1988 Towers Street was hosting regular Sea Lion shows in front of the lake and live entertainment was always available. The streets buildings remained pretty much the same until 1993 when many of the outlets on the right hand side, such as the Athena Shop, were removed as the buildings were used for staff offices. The only two remaining public areas on the right hand side were the Guest Information and Corner Coffee House, until YourDay was opened in 2007.

In 1995 the Bagshaw's Restaurant became the Alton Eats Restaurant before being named Towers Fish & Chips in 1998. Just a year later and it was now known as the Towers Family Restaurant. In 1999 the building we see as Towers Trading was opened and known as the Towers Street Shop, it wasn’t until 2000 that it was given its current name of Towers Trading.

In 2006 the Towers Family Restaurant was renamed once more to the Towers Restaurant.
