In line with our commitment to protecting our forests and wildlife, we’ve made the decision not to bring back our firework displays at Center Parcs. Instead, we’re lighting up the forest with our Enchanted Light Trail - and you can visit as often as you like!
Whatever your age, there’s sure to be something to get you into the festive spirit - from designing your very own Christmas stocking to discovering the magical village on our Festive Treasure Trail. Remember to pre-book your activities to avoid disappointment. Please note that activities are an additional cost. Some festive activities are available only up until Christmas Eve.
The big day is on its way and we have a very special visitor at Center Parcs… Santa Claus himself is setting up his workshop right here in the forest, as his little helpers make all the last-minute toys and gifts for Christmas.
