Today is part three in my series reviewing Butlins resorts!
On Wednesday, we started our day off right with another delicious meal at The Yacht Club. Here I am getting ready to head to breakfast:
Not the greatest picture of me, but you can see how nice the living room is.
Breakfast was spectacular as ever. These chocolate Croissants were so flaky and delicious! We also had bowls of fresh fruit.
We also had a wonderful fry-up after this. Yum!!!
After breakfast, we headed over to the Skyline, where a photoshoot was taking place with Pingu himself. I’m quite a Pingu fan, so naturally I couldn’t leave without getting a picture!
After hobnobbing with Pingu, we headed to the seafront. Butlins is situated directly in front of the ocean, and you can follow the promenade into the Bognor Regis town center. Neither of us had been to Bognor before, so we were looking forward to seeing the town.

The sun was shining, and it was the perfect day to be at the beach.
Jai and I walked down to the Bognor pier, and then headed into town.
Here we are standing on the pier.
We looked around a few shops, and I bought a Bognor Regis teatowel. We also stumbled accross the free Bognor Regis musem, which was fun to look around.

Then we made our way back to Butlins, and it was time for rides, rides, rides!
We also happened to see the Skyline gang walking around the resort and entertaining onlookers:
Then it was time for “Pingu’s Chill Zone”!
After Pingu’s show, we stopped by guest services to ask for clean towels because housekeeping hadn’t come through our room that day. This time there was no problem getting the supplies.
Then it was time for another wonderful dinner! The buffet is so huge that we literally did not eat lunch once during our stay. The challenge was to work up enough of an appetite for dinner after the huge breakfast!
My first course included chips and gravy, mushy peas, sausage & rice. Jai’s dinner included sausage, some sort of macaroni and cheese, and a wonderful fish in cream sauce. Of course, we had seconds as well as dessert. I should have taken a picture of the huge dessert selection – it was lovely.
After dinner, we decided to check out “Amethyst”, a magic show that was taking place on the Centre Stage.
The Centre Stage is a huge venue, drenched in disco lights. There was a dance floor and a Red Coat playing DJ, which made it feel like a club – except the people on the dancefloor were all five year olds! It was a fun atmosphere. The Red Coats led the children in dances, and then the kids would chase them in circles around the stage. At one point, they all jumped on top of a Red Coat in a dogpile!
There were more shows coming up after Amethyst finished, but the jet lag was kicking in so we decided to retire for the evening. We had a lovely day enjoying the seafront and the various shows!
