When does holidaying in the UK not feel like holidaying in the UK? When you come to Center Parcs. Not only does the idyllic forest setting feel about as far away from the ‘rat race’ as it’s possible to get, but the diverse range of activities and cuisine on offer will make you feel like you’ve crossed the globe and experienced years of holidays in one.

Come around the world with us and have some serious fun…jet lag not included!

The Swiss Alps… all under one roof!

What: Indoor Climbing Adventure
Where: All villages
This is indoor climbing with a difference. Depending on which village you visit, you could be conquering a chess board, scaling snakes and ladders or ascending in outer space.  We’ve experienced instructors to show you the ropes – literally! And with walls of varying heights and difficulty, whatever your age and experience there’s a challenge awaiting you.

Canadian wilderness… without the bears

What: Katakanu
Where: All villages
You’ll feel like you’re paddling through the Yukon by river in groups of up to six people. Our Katakanus are perfect for those who want to make a splash and enjoy the great outdoors with friends and family. A great value experience for children and adults alike.

Hawaii… big waves and big fun

What: Subtropical Swimming Paradise
Where: All villages
The tropical climate, the blue water and green vegetation, the perfect waves rolling through – it’s the closest thing you’ll get to Waimea Bay without jumping on a plane. In addition to the main pool, you can enjoy two spa pools, a special pool for little ones and rip-roaring water slides for thrill seekers. With food served all day, it’s a great place to spend a few hours and hang-ten.

Peru… find your balance

What: Stand-up Paddle Boarding
Where: Longleat Forest, Elveden Forest and Sherwood Forest

For nearly 3,000 years, Peruvian fisherman used a small craft made of reeds called a “Caballitos de Totora” which they steered with a long bamboo shaft and after a day’s fishing, they would surf the waves in just for fun. That was arguably the origin of stand up paddle boarding and our instructors will help you pick it up in no time. You’ll love the feeling of freedom and the feeling of being totally connected to your environment and nature.

India… strike a pose  

What: Bollywood Dancing Classes
Where: All villages
Colourful, dramatic and full of cinematic pizzaz – Bollywood dance moves are now a familiar sight on Western cinema and TV screens, but have you ever wondered what is the symbolism of the gestures, footwork and costumes drawn from classical Indian dance styles actually means? More importantly, have you ever fancied donning traditional dress and learning a routine?

Lapland… see the forest come alive

What: Winter Wonderland
Where: All villages
From Monday, 6 November 2017 to Monday, 1 January 2018, all five of our villages will fall under a captivating spell and magically transform into a Winter Wonderland with a crisp white blanket of glistening snow. It’s the perfect festive getaway, a magical Christmas experience that will delight adults as much as little ones. Keep your eyes peeled, you might even meet Nutmeg the baby reindeer.

Wherever you want to go this autumn – come to Center Parcs.
