The Weekend

Inspiring the next generation of scientists...

Following it's amazing success in 2015, we’re so proud to welcome back our Astonishing Family Science Weekend. We’re on a mission to inspire the next generation of scientists who want to learn and experience more as we help them understand that science is part of everyday life (not something that’s just reserved for lab coats and goggles!).

We’ve partnered with a number of fantastic names to help us fuse science, in a way that doesn't feel like learning, with all the fun and entertainment that you’d expect from a Butlin’s break. From our famous Splash Waterworld and Traditional Fairground, to our fun and modern family accommodation, this break is totally unique. And it's all in one place beside the seaside, result!

So the price you pay gives you all of that, plus the majority of our science shows, workshops and activities during The Astonishing Family Science Weekend, and some brilliant Butlin's shows to keep you entertained in the evenings after the science fun is over for the day.

Our Partners

We’ve teamed up with the UK’s best science experts who share our passion for inspiring young people. On your break you can expect to find Science Museum, Aardman, National Space Centre, and many, many more!
