Butlins Late Deal – one of the few free activities.
Here are photo’s of the few happy moments of our holiday on our Butlins Late Deal. Frankly it was a late booking but it wasn’t much of a deal!
The soft play area, see above and below, was not open late so we found limited things to do with the kids in the evening. One of the stupid things was that they tried to tell us that my granddaughter, who is 4, was too big. They wanted her to go in one side and her brother aged 3, to go in the other. Then my son-in-law, who was totally p****’d off with their attitude and the distress they caused the children, spent the next hour playing with them both, and guess what, he’s 6 foot and no-one said a word! See Immy below, a normal 4 year old!
(See Butlins Cheap Deal for the truth about just how much you can really spend at Butlins.)
If you are still thinking about booking your Butlins Late Deal, then just give a thought to the fact that you will probably get the worst accommodation. Late Deals inevitably means the best has gone and you will almost certainly have stairs to cope with. See below and decide whether you want to do this late at night!
And while we’re still on the subject of ‘late’, nothing to do with a late deal at all, but just another niggle. After a long walk from our accommodation, we eventually found the Crazy Horse Saloon with 10 minutes to spare before the bingo started. Yes you’ve guessed it. We were too LATE! They saw us arrive and quickly put the tickets out of sight, telling us, ‘sorry, you’re too late’.
So there you have it. In my view Butlins Late Deals are not good deals and you’d be better of looking elsewhere!

Do you remember Butlins Holidays from years gone by? Me too. I am 54 and I had my first Butlins Holiday when I could barely walk. I have to say I haven’t been since my teens until I decided to take a holiday with my grandchildren.
I thought Butlins would be a great family holiday for the kids and good for ‘Mom and Dad’ since they wouldn’t be shelling out money left right and centre.
How wrong could I be thinking Butlins Nostalgia was a good idea.
Now I’m not saying my views on Butlins Holidays will necessarily be yours but if you recognise yourself when you read my review then you may want to think twice before making the same mistake I did. I went to Butlins Skegness but reading other peoples views of their holidays at Butlins it doesn’t look like the other resorts are any better.
Butlins Holidays are not for me and frankly if you’re reading this far I doubt Butlins will be for you either. Butlins Cheap Deal? Read what I think of Butlins Cheap Holiday Deal.

History of Skegness
Before the late 1800’s Skegness was little more than an insignificant coastal village. Wainfleet some 5 miles inland had a far more coloured history than neighbouring Skegness. Events really began to take off at the turn of the century with the development of the railway networks and for the first time ordinary working people from the midlands could economically visit the coast and enjoy the miles of golden beaches and fresh air. Thus early Skegness ourism was born. The town was possibly at the height of its popularity in the 1920’s and 1930’s prior to the mass ownership of motor cars following World War 2.
