How to spend your extra hour at Center Parcs

On Sunday 29 October the clocks go back and you get an extra hour to spend however you please. Here are our suggestions for making the most of those 60 minutes at Center Parcs...


At Center Parcs, sixty minutes is enough time to make memories that will last a lifetime. From unique activities to a shopping spree to relaxing in the spa, it’s your hour – make the most of it.

Family hour

Teddy Bears’ Picnic – this 60-minute activity for you and your little ones will make sure you’re not grizzly for the rest of the day.

Little adventurers can try Mini Trek, our 30-minute ‘aerial’ obstacle course just 1m above the ground, where you’re on hand for support. With the spare half hour, you could head to one of our adventure playgrounds to put your new-found climbing skills to the test.

Adventure Golf takes around an hour, so putt your family to the test with a touch of competition…

Use every last minute with an hour of Ten Pin Bowling – we have bumpers and ramps for little ones to perfect their technique.

With 55 minutes of Indoor Climbing Adventure you can scale the space wall or challenge a giant chess board.

Lunch hour

Take an hour back for yourself in Starbucks – enjoy a coffee made just the way you like it and a slice of something delicious to keep you fuelled for the day.

Breakfast, lunch or dinner – an hour’s enough to treat the whole family in Sports Cafe, where there’s no need to book.

Shopping spree

Spend that extra hour picking out something special for yourself in Time for Shade, or let the little ones loose in Just Kids with the pocket money.

Relaxing hour

Head over to Aqua Sana Spa and find ultimate relaxation for an hour with a treatment or lying back in the experience rooms.

Inside or out

Sixty minutes is plenty of time to explore the miles of trails that each village has to offer, so be sure to make the forest your playground and be at one with nature.

Fancy staying in? Light the fire in your lodge, put on your favourite film and settle in to watch together – don’t forget to get some popcorn in the microwave!

For more than sixty minutes to experience everything Center Parcs has to offer, book your next break now.
