I wanted to send my thanks to John and his wife for allowing me to share their wonderful photos on this website. He has sent me some amazing photos that show you another time in Butlins, which is just as important today. I am very lucky to see these before I uploaded them and to witness another side of Butlin's through John's eyes.
These are truly amazing to see and a great way to celebrate the name we all love. There is a great deal of history here and it's amazing to see. The photos you see here is John with his wife on the beach at Butlin's Bognor Regis.

The colours would change on the passes as well as the letters. This stopped previous weeks gaining entry. These are no longer used as the door key card is used as a means to gain entry to the resort.
It would never be the same if Crazy Golf was missing and what it is.
Below are my notes on key areas of interest that I had found on these photos.
The Big Slide
This pool is or in the process of being knocked down (unless they have changed their minds). Zoomed in, you can see the big slide that is featured on the postcards. The pool was known Aquasplash during the holiday worlds and then Splash when it all changed in 1999.
The Master Blaster
I am unsure if this name remains, however the boat slides were added in Minehead in 1999 when the new "Splash" pool opened. They are a great idea, sit on the boat and off you go....yippee. This photo was taken from Bognor Regis.
Some area's of old Butlin's remained
The seats and tables have hardly been changed over the many years in Butlin's. Johns photo here is from Centre stage in 2003. I believe they might have been replaced or fixed but the design has stayed the same for many years
These were given to customers who wanted gain entry back into the resort. When returning back from town, you simply showed this to the secuirty and access was granted. Today, they use wrist bands to do the same. The cards, like the wrist bands, have different codes and colours to stop reproduction.
A classic arcade game that remains today in Butlin's
I remember this arcade game well and loved every moment of it. I was so glad so see this photo and to see the game in Skegness Butlins in 2020. You shoot the gun (no bullets) and aim for the target. The item would respond, the squirting water was the best one :)
A very important map!
This area is no more and was replaced by a hotel. This map shows you the outside swimming pool with the building that was knocked down quite some time ago. A great and important share.
