About this deal

Billy Butlin opened his first holiday camp in Skegness in 1936 and continued to expand with camps at Clacton, Ayr, Pwllheli, Bognor Regis, Mosney, Minehead and Barry Island. In the 1960s and 1970s, the company also operated the Top of the Tower revolving restaurant at the then-named Post Office Tower in London.

The Ayr camp was later renamed Wonderwest World, and is now owned and run by Haven, part of Bourne Leisure, who previously owned both brands. Character meet and greets – you can queue in the Skyline pavilion to meet various characters including Billie and Bonnie Bear, Peppa Pig and PJ Masks. Offering a range of accommodation to suit every budget and family size, a lovely sand and shingle beach for the kids to play on, and loads of great places to eat, including a 1950s vintage diner. Members of the Premier Club (Butlins loyalty club for regular guests) receive a free badge each time they visit, with a new design given each year.In September 2022, it was announced that Blackstone Group that had bought Butlins in 2021 and the Bourne Leisure Group, sold Butlins back to one of the original founding families of Bourne Leisure. Named after the song " All Tomorrow's Parties" by the Velvet Underground, it was an alternative to larger mainstream festivals and was presented in a more intimate environment than a giant stadium or huge country field.

Once I’ve made my activity plan, as well as waiting for the Butlin’s bookings to go live I keep checking their official Facebook page for any updates which can be found here: Butlin’s Facebook Page 5.

We have just come back from a Just for Tots break and I was able to book everything I wanted, from evening shows to daytime activities to eating meals at the times we wanted to fit around our schedule.

Our kids loved their themed room with bunk beds and their own TVs in their room which helped keep them amused for the (albeit small) time we were in the room. Butlins Bognor Regis Resort is located in Upper Bognor Road, PO21 1JJ, Bognor Regis, United Kingdom. Theres no pattern, only pattern every year is thatyou always get early bird discount no matter where you go.I had worked out from the Facebook group that the window could open any time from the Monday but it could also be later that week, and the most common time seemed to be around 10am. This pithy guide will tell you everything you need to know (and nothing you don't) so you can avoid the tourist traps and find the best of the city, from exceptional coffee and sustainable restaurants to perfect cliffside walks and proper pubs.
