Fred Pontin created Pontins in 1946. Pontins is the perfect place to take your family for a fun filled holiday, there is plenty of entertainment on offer for families.

In popular culture

The 1973 British film Holiday on the Buses was filmed at and set in the Prestatyn resort. A plaque was erected in 2004 at the main entrance gates (unchanged since the film) to note this event.[8] The same venue hosts professional snooker each year. Prestatyn Sands also hosts the finals for the annual Brass Band Festival[9] historically, the qualifying rounds were held in other Pontins centres.

The previous On The Buses film, Mutiny on the Buses (1972), depicted buses carrying adverts with the slogan “Go Pontinental”, implying that Hammer Film Productions had already established a working relationship with Pontins with a view to shooting a future film at one of their resorts.

Carol Lee Scott (known as “Grotbags“) performed cabaret throughout different Pontins sites in the 1960s and 70s.
