Inside the Butlin’s Christmas breaks which your kids will love – with candy workshops and gifts from Santa

“IMPRESSIVE!” It’s the one word that, when spoken by your five-year-old son at your vacation spot, will bring a smug smile to your face.

It’s the neon red Butlin sign that gets him excited (he’s easily impressed), but his smile only grows when he sees the massive exhibition center that sits just outside the Ocean Hotel at Bognor Regis Resort in West Sussex.

We can see it even better from our room – a five-person apartment with a children’s room, mini-fridge and lots of space.

Located on the fourth floor, it has a balcony that gives Reggie, his twin brother Teddie, and their eight-year-old sister Frankie-Beau a bird’s-eye view of the rides.

But what makes the trip truly magical is that we’re here for a pre-Christmas break, so Christmas carols are the soundtrack to the cheerful rides with beautifully lit Christmas trees and festive displays that surround the resort.

My wife Kayleigh and I are pleasantly surprised that most of the rides are free and have something for all ages from mini-trampolines to waltzes to a carousel and bumper cars.

But that’s not even the tip of the iceberg.

The main arena, the Skyline Pavilion, in the heart of Butlin’s, is the biggest and best arcade I’ve ever seen.

There are claw machines, face painting, and live shows — not to mention food stalls galore.

But it was the buffet restaurant that strengthened us for a short break in this children’s paradise.

Open for breakfast and dinner, there is everything your heart desires.

It’s a suitably festive way to start our first full day with a trip to Santa’s Magical Candy Workshop, a fun, family-friendly show that includes singing, dancing and even a meet-and-greet with Santa to collect a gift from him.

Then there’s pottery painting, making gingerbread houses, and making tree ornaments, which are just the tame activities.

For more adventurous kids – like our Frankie beau – there are three play parks, archery, laser tag, zipline and climbing wall, all of which are reasonably priced and bookable through the Butlin’s app.

The twins love the other free options, including a huge indoor soft play area, a doll’s castle, and performances by Peppa Pig and the PJ Masks.

It feels like there is something to do, see or enjoy every hour of the day, whether it’s a bowling game with the family, a photo shoot with the festive children’s characters, a song and dance with the Butlin’s Skyline Gang at their Christmas party or A spectacular show worthy of the West End, the children loved The Little Mermaid whilst the Musicals Rocks show is a great evening for the adults.

And with the handy B Serve app, you can order drinks to be delivered to your table, no matter what venue you’re in.

Of course, that’s assuming you can drag your kids away from the jewel in this resort’s crown – the £40m Splash Waterworld.

Free to use and designed for children, it is full of exciting water slides, splash pads, a wave pool and rapids.

After three breathless days of fantastically festive family adventures, we can all agree that our short break at Butlin’s was just “Wow!”.
