Seaton has been a popular holiday destination since Victorian times, with a further boost to the town’s tourist economy during the 1930s, when large-scale holiday camps were built to serve the growing demand for accommodation and entertainment along the English coastline. The first chain of such camps was launched by Harry Warner, who pioneered the concept and built one of his first camps in Seaton in 1935, with the assistance of a certain Billy Butlin, a funfair entrepreneur. Butlin so liked the holiday camp concept that he took the workers he’d employed in Seaton up to Skegness, where he built the first Butlins in 1936.
