Fancy ⭐WINNING⭐ a £100/€100 Center Parcs gift card? Each month, the photo with the most likes from our Instagram grid will win the gift card. The prize can be used at any UK or Ireland village or as part payment towards a Center Parcs break, or even one of our unique activities!


Simply use the #MyCP hashtag when sharing your photos on social media, of a Center Parcs break. As we’re searching through the hashtagged ‘User Generated Content (UGC)’ we’ll pick a selection for our CPUK Instagram grid. Then, each month, the photo with the most likes will win the gift card.


Content that catches our eye could be your lodge nestled away in the forest, one of our thrilling activities, mesmerising sunrises, the rapids or wildlife roaming free. There’s more details about the #MyCP hashtag and what we look for, here.


In a nutshell, your wonderful experiences at Center Parcs, whether it’s racing down the rapids or exploring the luscious forest. Here’s a few ideas to help inspire those ‘Insta-moments’:

  • Being nestled away in the spectacular forest
  • Your ‘home from home’ lodges (inside and outside)
  • Families creating treasured memories (from birthdays to ‘firsts’)
  • Wildlife roaming free (or ducks tapping on your window!)
  • The rapids (night and day)
  • The Subtropical Swimming Paradise
  • Seasonal moments from Winter Wonderland, Winter Forest Lights to the forest covered in glistening snow
  • Mesmerising sunset and sunrise moments
  • Exploring the forest on your cycle
  • Iconic features, like the ‘Instagrammable’ red phoneboxes
  • Gorgeous beach and lake views
  • Mouth-watering food and drink shots (did someone say ‘The Pancake House?!’)
