As the Butlin's memorabilia website grew with my collection, I was delighted to find many others sharing their Butlin's stories. As the importance of Butlin's grew on me, I began to realise that the story of this great name goes far beyond the camps/resorts and hotels.
The Untold Stories offer another perspective on the Butlin's story and provide a different view of the name we all cherish. This area has expanded to allow us to experience more of Butlins during a time when we may not have had the opportunity before. These stories are crucial to the website and evoke a strong emotional response. I'm so glad to be able to share them with you.
