Continual investment has been the key to Center Parcs’ success over the years

It all began in 1987, when Center Parcs revolutionised the UK holiday market by introducing family breaks throughout the year, offering an alternative to the seasonal getaway. The secret to Center Parcs’ 25 years of success has been the evolving facilities, high quality accommodation and variety of family activities to ensure the best experience is provided every time. Ensuring this commitment lives on today, in 2012 Center Parcs celebrates its 25th year with new, exciting developments:
1.    New features at each Subtropical Swimming Paradise are in the early planning phases to include new water rides, toddler play areas, warm water pools and private cabanas at all locations.
2.    Center Parcs’ uniquely designed luxury Treehouses will open at Longleat Forest.
3.    Spa Suite accommodation has been built for luxury spa breaks at Elveden Forest.
4.    New shops, restaurants and cafes including a children’s toy shop (Just For Kids), gift and home décor shop (The Store Room) and a new burger restaurant (Dexter’s Kitchen).
