Winter Forest Lights 2024

It’s no secret that after the festivities of Christmas, things can feel a little gloomy. Center Parcs is here to sprinkle a little bit of magic into 2024, in the form of Winter Forest Lights! From Monday 8 January until Sunday 25 February 2024 across all of our villages, you’ll find plenty of winter-themed activities to keep the whole family entertained. Immerse yourself in beautiful forest scenery and watch the forest light up as the evening draws in.


Wintery magic in the forest

Experience The Wishlight Village, at the heart of Winter Forest Lights, where the forest comes to life and transforms into a sparkling winter playground, complete dazzling lights and wintery decorations. Indulge in our winter warmers with delicious hot chocolates, tasty snacks and more at Forest Fayre. Take in the crisp, wintery air and immerse yourself in our winter experience by hiring a cycle from our Cycle Centre, or warm up in our Subtropical Swimming Paradise that’s heated to a balmy 29.5c all year round – it’s a great time of the year for the whole family to get together and create lasting memories.


The Enchanted Light Garden

Wander through the Enchanted Light Garden and gaze up as thousands of twinkling lights and bursts of colours nestled between the treetops and forest floor. Perfect for the whole family to get involved in.
