This winter our magical woodlands will come alive with the anticipation of Christmas. From Friday, 7 November, each Village will fall under a captivating spell and magically transform into a Winter Wonderland. Adorned in a glittering array of twinkling lights and decorations, it will take your breath away.
Santa’s Woodland Workshop
Bring your letters to Santa and get ready to meet the big man himself at his Woodland Workshop. While you are here you will meet his mischievous elves as well as some of Santa’s trusty reindeer, as they come together to prepare for Christmas Eve.
Little ones can enjoy a special pony ride to or from Santa’s Woodland Workshop through the magical forest. Why not linger for a while and enjoy a taste of Christmas with a warm drink while you soak up the festive atmosphere.
There are plenty of seasonal activities for young and old alike. You will find traditional pursuits such as Willow Weaving, where you can make your own festive wreath, or you can gaze out of the comfort of a horse-drawn carriage as you take a tour through our magnificent forest.
Your little ones can be entertained by an array of seasonal activities, including Festive Cupcake Decorating and Design a Christmas Stocking. Why not join them in decorating your own Christmas bauble in the Pottery Painting Studio? To really prepare them for the festive season ahead, you can also enlist your little elves on a VIP adventure to become a trainee elf. With many surprises and treats along the way, it’s sure to make their visit to Center Parcs one to remember.
