Excerpt: Butlins (also Butlin's) is a chain of large holiday camps in the United Kingdom. Butlins was founded by Billy Butlin to provide affordable holidays for ordinary British families. Between 1936 and 1966, ten camps were built, including one in Ireland and one in The Bahamas. In the 1970s and 1980s Butlins also operated numerous large hotels including one in Spain, a number of smaller holiday parks in England and France, and a revolving restaurant in the Post Office Tower in London. Tough competition from overseas package holiday operators, rising operational costs, and rapidly changing demand forced many of these to close in the 1980s and 1990s. Three of the original camps remain open in Bognor Regis, Minehead and Skegness. The Butlins company is now owned by Bourne Leisure which operates other leisure brands in the UK including Warner and Haven. Butlins runs a variety of family fun activities and entertainments, many of which are included in the price of a holiday. Redcoats provide entertainment, organise activities, and act as hosts. The architecture seen in this 1985 photograph of Butlins in Ayr was typical of most camps before refurbishment. Note the rows of chalets in the distance. Billy Butlin receiving Filey camp back from the RAF who ran it as RAF Hunmanby Moor during WWIIBilly Butlin's inspiration for his holiday camp empire came from an unhappy holiday on Barry Island in his youth, when he had been locked out of his bed and breakfast accommodation all day by his landlady, which was normal practice at the time. The first of the Butlins holiday camps was opened by Billy Butlin in 1936 in Skegness following his success in the development of amusement parks. A second camp quickly followed in Clacton (1938) and construction of a third began at Filey (1939). With the outbreak of World War II, building at Filey was postponed and the camps at Skegness and Clacton were given over for military use. Wartime use of Butlins camps continued with resorts at Ayr, Filey & Pwl
