National Railway Museum Butlins Holiday Camps Metal Wall Art (4 Sizes)

From the archives of the National Railway Museum this metal sign shows a nostalgic advert of our famous Butlin’s Holiday camps in the 50’s and 60’s. Arguably, the heyday of UK seaside holiday trips. Billy Butlin created a one stop holiday camp for families to get away during the summer break. Between 1936 and 1966 10 camps were built and this advert shows off 5 of those holiday camps.

Often regarded as the golden age of train travel these familiar travel posters advertised to generations of train travellers across the UK. Likewise, most of these artworks encouraged families to explore the United Kingdom via train. Specially commissioned artists, such as Ronald Lampitt, Norman Wilkinson and Frank Henry Mason, produced beautiful British Rail Travel Posters for all of the major towns and cities across the UK. This one, for example, is for the iconic Butlin’s Holiday Camps from post war Britain. More disposable income meant that working families could get away for their summer break by train direct to one of Billy Butlin’s holiday camps. Located in Ayr, Clacton, Pwllheli, Skegness and Mosney.  Perfect gift for a railway enthusiast or collector of vintage advertising.
