Whether you are joining us for your 1st or 21st Winter Wonderland break, the excitement of coming to Center Parcs during this time never dwindles. To give you a glimpse into Winter Wonderland, here are our top seven reasons why Winter Wonderland is so special.
The festive season starts in November
Winter Wonderland will get the whole family excited for the Christmas season and why wait till December when you can start in November. Christmas is the jolliest time of year, so we say, why not extend the celebrations? Check out how these guests kicked off their festive celebrations during their Winter Wonderland break.
Yes that’s right. The weather man may not be able to guarantee a white Christmas this year, but we certainly can. The start of November marks the month that all of our Villages are transformed into Winter Wonderland with a crisp white, blanket of glistening snow.

At all our Villages, Winter Wonderland celebrations go off with a bang. Twice a week, on the run up to the big day, our Villages host spectacular firework displays to increase the excitement during your break. So whether you join us in the week or at the weekend, this is one event not to miss.

Meet Santa at Santa’s Woodland Workshop
A break at Center Parcs during Winter Wonderland, is not complete without a trip to see Santa if you’re joining us with little ones. Santa’s marvellous Center Parcs workshop is a treat for all the family as you explore Santa’s Woodland Workshop, meet the elves and take your Christmas letter to the man himself. We think Bailey has the perfect question for Santa!

The best part of winter is being able to indulge in delicious food, so whether it’s a festive carvery with the whole family or a sweet treat for yourself, Center Parcs offers something for everyone. Enjoy a Starbucks Christmas beverage, a festive carvery at The Pancake House or buy all the trimmings from ParcMarket and enjoy a home-cooked meal in your Lodge.
