Although the knobbly knee contests are long gone, the famous Butlin's Red Coats are still there. There is still fun for all ages, from Bob the Builder, Thomas the Tank Engine, Character Olympics, various sports: archery, fencing, football or even climbing to the VIP club, just for teenagers. Not to forget the sub-tropical Splash Waterworld. The evening brings some great shows from the stars of Britain's Got Talent or the X-Factor, Superslam Wrestling, Sportacus from LazyTown and even Basil Brush.
Butlins accommodation: The accommodation consists of both rooms and self-catering apartments. In addition there are three very different hotels in Bognor Regis. For those not self-catering, (or maybe for those who are) there is a large choice of different dining options.
With Parks at five locations: Southport, Prestatyn Sands, Brean Sands, Camber Sands or Pakefield, Pontins is aimed at good value family holidays. They Provide a range of activities, both free ones (e.g. various sports, salsa sessions, face painting and circus skills) and ones for a small extra fee (climbing, go karts, paint balling or bingo).

Pontins' accommodation: They provide accommodation in three different grades of self catering apartments, which can sleep from four to eight people. These have all been recently refurbished.
Can you remember as a child, being bored, sitting in a the caravan, watching it rain outside? Clearly your mum and dad never took you to Havens! Remember those heated in and outdoor pools with splash zones, lazy rivers and even space bowls? No? Aquajets and Walker Walkerz? No? Climbing walls, rope courses, abseiling? No? Archery, tennis coaching, fencing or even Coke Football Coaching? No? Well Haven has them all. And even better, many of them are free! And the fun doesn't stop when the Sun goes down... Wacky game such as Rock n' Roll Bingo or Gunge Roulette, entertainment from top pop, rock and comedy stars, plus during the summer, Summer Mania Wrestling, the Circus and Soapstar to Popstar. And after all the excitement, some of the parks even have luxury spas to relax in.
