Center Parcs celebrates 25 years of making family memories

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 have been completed at Longleat Forest.

3. Spa Suite accommodation has been built for luxury spa breaks at Elveden Forest.

4. New shops, restaurants and cafés 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).

Short breaks at Center Parcs in 2012 start from £249.

In December 2011, Center Parcs launched a brand new Facebook application which allows guests to put their own Center Parcs holiday photos into Center Parcs backgrounds and submit to enter a photo competition. The photo competition prizes include the chance to star in online advertising or win a luxury short break in a New Style Exclusive Lodge.
