Butlins, Fun & Dancing (Skegness) with Darren & Isobel

 Butlins, Fun & Dancing 

The smiles on our faces says it all. We loved our fun packed holidays at Butlins. 

The funfair is always on the top of our to do list! We love riding on the elegant carousel, bumping and crashing into each other on the dodgems and whizzing around on the waltzer. 

We tried our luck on the Hook a Duck stall and were delighted when we all won some fabulous prizes! 

A lovely morning was spent at the Seal Sanctuary where we learnt about their wonderful rescue program. We fed the greedy goats and were brave enough to visit the reptile house. Everyone loved walking through the Tropical Butterfly House where so many beautifully coloured butterflies fluttered amongst us. 

Wow! We were treated to some show stopping live performances from the entertainment team. We were always the first on the dance floor singing our hearts out and dancing the night away! The Redcoats loved joining us on the dance floor too!

There are so many fun activities for us to do and one of our favourites was splashing around and whizzing down the rapids in the fantastic swimming pool. 

It was competition time as we headed to the bowling alley. Everyone clapped and cheered when we crowned Grace champion!

Attractions of Blackpool with Åse & Oli

 Attractions of Blackpool 

The sun was shining as we made our way to explore the bright lights of Blackpool. 

Madame Tussauds Museum was always a must! We loved getting up close and personal with our favourite celebrities. What a fantastic experience it was as we posed with the wax work figures. We couldn’t believe how life like they were. 

We were very brave as we climbed 380ft into the sky to the top of The Blackpool Tower and experienced the thrilling SkyWalk. The daredevils amongst us walked onto the five-centimetre-thick glass viewing platform where we could see all the way down to the pavement.

As if that wasn't enough excitement for the day we took a trip on the famous Blackpool Ferris Wheel which provided fantastic views of Blackpool and the coastline. 

You would always find us on the dance floor showing off our groovy moves. 

All the fun of the fair was had as we whizzed around on the waltzer, crashed into each other on the dodgem cars and rode the elegant carousel. 

 We spent the an afternoon at Ribby Hall Village Zoo! What a fantastic variety of animals from all over the globe and for a small zoo it was really doing its bit for wildlife. We saw some tiny marmoset monkeys and even had some fallow deer coming to say hello, trying to have a nibble on our coats and bags! 

The Blackpool Sea Life Centre was fascinating. We learnt so much about their ongoing conservation projects and how plastic is destroying our oceans. We absolutely loved walking through the huge glass tunnel where sharks, turtles and stingray swam above us. 

It was the perfect day for a paddle on the lake where we took pedalo boats out around the small island. We became wildlife spotters and as the lake was surrounded by mature woodland the cute ducklings and squirrels weren’t difficult to spot!

 Butlins, Fun & Dancing 

We always have a fabulous time at Butlins with so many fun activities on offer. We especially love meeting the friendly Redcoats who are always happy to stop and chat to us. 

A morning spent at the on-sight funfair is a must! Whizzing around on the Walzer, riding the elegant Carousel and flying high in the sky on the High Swing is always great fun!

At the arcades we tried our luck on the amusements and were thrilled when we won some great prizes!

A day of exploring the incredible views of Exmoor before taking a trip on the world-famous Cliff Railway, the best and most exciting way to travel between the two historic towns of Lynton and Lynmouth giving us the best views of the North Devon Coastline as we glided up and down the 862-foot length of track on water powered Victorian railway. 

We finished our day at the pretty seaside town of Ilfracombe and much to our delight we found a delicious ice cream shop! We admired the bronze statue of a pregnant lady, Verity who stands overlooking the harbour. We learnt that she is meant to represent truth and justice. 

The evening entertainment at Butlins never disappoints, especially when the Redcoats join us on the dance floor! The live shows always have us singing our hearts out and dancing the night away. 

It was game on as we hit the bowling alley. Everyone showed great sportsman ship as we tried our hardest to get a strike!
