If you tune into your lodge TV each evening, you can watch the animated version of all our seasonal stories, including festive games to play. The perfect end to a magical day.

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.
Winter is also warm when you’re at Center Parcs, with our 29.5 degrees indoor Subtropical Swimming Paradise. Where else in the world would you go from a chilly winter woodland straight to a tropical Amazon rainforest?
