Center Parcs

The UK ‘Center Parcs’


What is it?: Center Parcs UK is a short-break holiday company that operates five holiday villages in England, with each covering about 400 acres of woodland. The company’s first village opened at Sherwood Forest, Nottinghamshire, in 1987 and its fifth, at Woburn Forest, Bedfordshire, opened in 2014.

A similar enterprise operates in continental Europe also under the name Center Parcs, however the two companies are separately owned. Center Parcs UK marked its 30th anniversary year in 2017.
