Fri 17 July - Fri 4 September 2020Summer holidays by the seaside are about packing up the car and leaving at the crack of dawn, ice cream, sandy sandwiches and fish and chips, riding the horses on the carousel, and feeling a defiant sense of bravery to go in the sea even if it’s freezing cold.
Our brilliantly British ways make for some of the best childhood memories of holidaying by the sea, and school summer holidays at Butlin’s are about exactly that; creating long lasting family memories.
Pack up the car and take your kids on a summer holiday to remember. Make the most of the beautiful beaches sat on our resorts’ doorsteps, enjoy the Traditional Fairground and its array of vintage rides, see live shows from headliners exclusive to our summer breaks, and dive into our family pool, complete with rapids, slides and flumes; perfect for those not-so-sunny summer days.
