Reasons to Visit Butlin’s Minehead This Summer

Hi! I’m Darren, a Redcoat at Butlin’s Minehead, and I was asked to write a blog post on why I think YOU should visit Minehead this summer! Here’s some of the things I think have that wow factor!

West Lakes Village

Our new West Lakes Village is designed by real families, for real families. The new chalet village is built around luscious lakes and landscaped gardens creating that extra special place to spend your summer! Not only are they are set on an amazing Butlin’s backdrop but you’ll also be able to experience a number of activities at the village for the families such as arts & crafts, volleyball, treasure hunts and more – all lead by our Redcoats!

Meet your Heroes

Butlin’s has always been famous for bringing magic to life for the little ones and this summer is no exception. We have a number of TV stars that families will love to meet including Scooby Doo, Mike the Knight, Angelina Ballerina and ,of course, our very own Billy Bear.


The Skyline Pavilion will play host to a number of fun interactive shows that the kids will love to watch and join in with, such as Mike the Knight and the Glendragon Anthem, Angelina Ballerina’s Dance Class, Wake up and Work out with Billy and Bonnie and a brand new Skyline Gang Show, Rumble in the Jungle!

Also brand new to Butlin’s Minehead this year – Reds will feature a tots based show to kick each evening off with a bang. Billy Bear will have his cowboy hat at the ready in Buffalo Billy and two Redcoats will be going on a glorious adventure to lands far and wide, meeting some new friends on the way like Fireman Sam & Bob the Builder in Little Big Adventure.

And here especially for the summer and back by popular demand is the amazing Shaolin Monks show, Stephen Mulhern, and The Big Top Circus!

So we have the tots covered but what about the older ones? Well, we have a great choice of activities and kids clubs for younger & older children to take part in. Messy time and arts and crafts for the 0 – 4’s, Circus Skills with the Skyline Gang and Fun Fencing for 5- 8’s, Hooping and party dance workshop for 9 – 12’s and Silent Cinema and Shambala Bracelet Making for the teens. All part of the price!

The Diner

Fancy a bite to eat? Why not try our new all singing, all dancing diner. Take a step back in time and head to The Diner where you can enjoy fantastic food whilst watching some on the spot entertainment. It is a completely new entertainment experience at Minehead and it’s not to be missed!
