Perfect for little ones
You’ll find our resorts are much quieter during our term time breaks and we tailor our activities and entertainment just for little ones. On our breaks under 5s eat free and they also include early mealtimes with tot-sized cutlery as well as dedicated parent-toddler swim sessions with the fountains off so you can enjoy a relaxing paddle together.
Get a real taste of how much fantastic entertainment and activities are included in the price of your break.

There’s nowhere quite like Butlins when it comes to seeing your favourite characters up close and personal. And because we know that little ones don’t have great attention spans, our character experiences and shows are all designed to last around 20 minutes.
Thomas the Tank Engine is holding a party on the Skyline Pavilion Stage and wants to put up some sparkly decorations. Will he get them in time or will Toby beat him to it?
Mike will appear at Butlins in his very own mini adventure along with his younger sister and wizard in training Evie. She sees magic as the solution to almost all problems, including Mike's!

During our term time breaks, Splash Waterworld tends to be a bit quieter which is perfect for your little ones to have a splash around in the shallows. And if it’s their first time in the water or they’re a bit nervous, you can come along to our exclusive sessions for parents with under 5s.
Give your tots their first waterworld experience at a time dedicated to parents and their little ones.
Shallow Play Area
Our shallow areas are situated away from the big pool and have gentle slides, making them ideal for tots.
As Billy Butlin once said, “a holiday’s your opportunity to try something new” and we know for some little ones this will be their opportunity to try lots of new things. We have got activities designed specially for them including indoor funfair rides that are gentle just for them, tots soccer and messy time too.
Indoor rides at Bognor and Minehead, outdoor at Skegness; your little ones can spin in a teacup, fly high in a plane, or ride the rails on a ladybird. It's all free, so your little ones can ride as many times as they like.
Indoor Soft Play Area
At Butlins we know that little ones have endless energy, so they will love running around and exploring our indoor soft play areas.
They can stick and splodge to their heart’s content at these arts and crafts sessions designed just for them.
All the best players start young. Your mini Messi will have a great time running around in Kickabout Quay, our lovely outdoor football area.
