Nostalgic color photographs of Britain's most famous holiday camp.

With its 'glamor grandmother' competitions and endless entertainment, Butlin's in the '80s was the ultimate British package holiday. These glorious photographs, taken during a particularly wet summer, capture a defiant national spirit at a time when Billy Butlin's original vision of 'fun for all the family' was under threat from cheap foreign travel and the faltering English weather.
