When Butlins closes and buildings are no more

Welcome to the "After Butlins" area of the website, where you can see information about Butlins hotels or camps after they have closed and also areas of the current resorts that have areas removed. This area is extremely important to the history of Butlin's timeline and tells the story of the ending of a legacy for a certain area. As a precaution, there have been many areas that have many safeguards to help prevent you from seeing an area that might cause upset to you
Butlin's Mosney Camp and Mosney Accommodation Centre

In 1982, Butlins in Ireland had come to an end as the owners of Butlins had made the decision to close the camp. In 1982, the camp was reopened with a new name, Mosney Holiday Centre. In the year 2000, it had become Mosney Accommodation Centre.

Barry Island Butlins

The last camp to be built and the one with a great deal of history is Barry Island Butlins. On the 29th October 1986, Rank announced that Butlins in Barry Island would be closing down. On the 23rd May 1987, the camp reopened as Majestic

Holidays (renamed to The Barry Island Resort). On the 7th November 1996, the camp was closed and Bovis Homes purchased it into a housing development. 

The Filey Holiday Camp Railway Station

Butlin's Filey continued to impress many as it opens its own railway station. In 1947, the station opens and the visitors arrive to the camp. The station remained in use until 1977, when it was closed down due the usage dropping a great deal.

Butlins AYR Closes

In 1999, Butlin's AYR had closed down in 1999 and transferred to Haven, the sister company to Butlin's. Renamed to Craig Tara, the camp remained with many old features of Butlins dispersing from the site with so much history.

Butlins Bognor Regis

Currently the smallest of the three, Butlin's Bognor Regis continues to represent the Butlins name well. The above photo is of a swimming pool that is no more as they upgraded the staff area into a larger swimming pool

Butlins Filey

The largest camp of them all was Butlin's Filey and it was the pride and joy of Sir William Butlin. It's great missed by many people and was known to be a masterpiece in design.
