      Christmas holidays and breaks

      Make this one a Christmas to remember with a magical festive break in the heart of the forest. With three, four, six or seven night breaks between 23 December and 27 December 2022, Christmas at Center Parcs could be your new family tradition.
      • Pre-order a Christmas tree, lights and decorations pack to add seasonal sparkle to your lodge
      • Wake up in the breathtakingly beautiful winter forest on Christmas morning
      • Visit Santa at his Woodland Workshop right up until Christmas Eve, with a gift and special souvenir photo to cherish
      • Soak up the festive atmosphere and see brand-new displays at Santa’s Woodland Village
      • Gaze up at sparkling lights and spectacular decorations all around the forest
      • Discover fabulously festive activities for the whole family to enjoy, available up until Christmas Eve.
      • Feast on a delicious Christmas dinner in one of our restaurants
      • At the end of the day, curl up in front of a real log fire in your cosy woodland lodge

      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 Garden- and you can visit as often as you like!
