Britain's newest Center Parcs holiday complex has opened in Bedfordshire.
It has been ten years in the planning, cost £250 million to build and employs more than 1,500 people in the region.
The company is hoping its location, at Woburn just an hour from London, will encourage new customers to try its forest-based holidays. The company says 40% of the accommodation is already booked for the next 12 months.
Centre Parcs already has another site in the Anglia region at Elveden in Suffolk.
