Family games night

Why not host a family games night in your lodge? Bring your favourite board games from home, download a few of our activity packs to bring with you or test your knowledge of Center Parcs in our family fun quiz. And of course, no games night is complete without some tasty food, so be sure to order a delicious delivery from Dining In. Stock up on marshmallows from ParcMarket, which you can toast out on your lodge patio as the sun goes down!

Eating out

Our restaurants are open until late in the evening, and with a selection of world cuisines to choose from there’s something for the whole family to enjoy – including fussy eaters!

Take your tastebuds on a trip to India at Rajinda Pradesh, to Italy at Bella Italia or to the United States at Huck’s – all without leaving the forest. It’s best to book your table in advance to avoid disappointment, but walk-ins are also accepted.

Center Parcs insider tip: Restaurants are quieter after 6pm!



If you’ve still got bundles of energy as the sun is setting, then continue the fun into the evening with a selection of activities available. Get your racquets at the ready and visit Sports Plaza for a game of Badminton, or see who’ll be the first to score a strike at a game of Ten Pin Bowling at the Leisure Bowl (and of course, to catch all the action from the Leisure Bowl Disco before or after your game). For a more laid-back activity, take a stroll through our forests as the sun goes down in a Nature Walk at Dusk. Our experienced rangers will introduce you to the wildlife that comes out to play when most of us are thinking about getting ready for bed.

You can see our full range of activities here.


The Subtropical Swimming Paradise

The Subtropical Swimming Paradise is open until 9pm - perfect for an evening swim. Heated to 29.5°c all year round and decked in lush tropical plants and trees, why not enjoy a relaxing night-time float beneath the stars in the outdoor pool? Tackle the Wild Water Rapids and enjoy our exhilarating rides and slides – a great way to tire out the little ones before bed.


Aqua Sana

For the ultimate way to unwind after dark, treat yourself to an evening of blissful relaxation on a Twilight Taster at our award-winning Aqua Sana Spa. Our evening spa sessions are open from 4pm till 9pm, and include a glass of bubbly on arrival before you indulge in some much-deserved ‘me time’. Don’t forget to book in advance to secure your place on a twilight forest spa evening.
