75 years of innovation

Our stylish hotels, our spas, our exciting activities and West End-style shows would be unrecognisable to those early guests. Billy believed in delighting his visitors with new and innovative attractions; and that enthusiasm lives on today. We're proud to say that whenever you come back to Butlins, you will always find something new to delight you. Just take a look at this list of our recent and exciting up and coming developments.

Billy Butlin was very hands-on, there was no such word as 'can't'! By comparison, Butlins was luxury, and for people who probably only had a nine-inch telly at home, the range of entertainment was amazing. Butlins today is as great as ever. I think we can learn a lot form looking back, that's why I'm proud to be running the archive.
