Overview

The 17th Carry On film remains one of the best-loved films in the series; featuring Barbara Windsor’s classic bra-snap and the gang’s wide-eyed encounter with late ‘60s counterculture. When Sid Boggle (Sid James) and Bernie Lugg (Bernard Bresslaw) take their girlfriends to what they believe is a fancy camping site, they soon come to realise it’s in fact muddy, cheap, and lousy. And their concerns are compounded by the arrival of a group of loud, raving hippies in the adjacent field.

The Carry On series continued up until the early 1990s, but Carry on Camping remains one of the signature entries in the enduring series.
