Traditional Fairground

Billy Butlin introduced Dodgems to the UK in the 1930s, so in tradition of the classic family funfair, all our resorts feature a Traditional Fairground featuring rides for all the family that are guaranteed to enchant and bring out the young at heart!

With an outdoor Traditional Fairground for older children and a specially designed Tots Fairground for your little ones, we’ve made sure there’s something for everyone. From Traditional Carousels, to Helter Skelters and whirling Waltzers there's plenty of fun to be had, and because it’s all included in the price, you can go on all the rides as many times as you like.

Our Traditional Fairground

Our Traditional Fairgrounds are open all year round (weather permitting) and offer the perfect place to add a little bit of extra sparkle to your family break.
