Legoland Windsor Day Trip
Bring back memories with a visit to Legoland - Fun for all ages
A day trip to Legoland is a great family activity and will be an especially big hit with the kids. It offers a total of 55 rides and attractions on a beautiful 150 acre park site.
Legoland Windsor was the first Legoland theme park to open since the original Legoland attraction in Denmark. It first opened in 1996, attracting about 1,400,000 visitors in it's first year. Since opening the theme park has added new attractions and rides almost every year.
Kids and adults alike will marvel at the complex and sophisticated recreations of famous buildings, landmarks and more, all created with LEGO. Many of the rides in Legoland are especially suited to younger children. Like many theme parks, Legoland is divided up into sections, each portraying a different theme. These include the Imagination Centre, Miniland, Traffic, DuploLand, LEGO City, Kingdom of the Pharaohs, Pirates Landing, Knight's Kingdom and Adventure Land. An astounding 55 million LEGO bricks have gone into the construction of all the models in the park. To see a preview of some of the fun rides check out the video at the bottom of the page.
Legoland is only a short distance from Windsor Castle so you may want to combine the two into a single day trip, however it certainly possible to spend a full day exploring either.
Tip: Save some money by bringing a picnic lunch with you.
Legoland's season is from April to November. Opening hours vary according to both the day of week and the time of year, and some days are reserved for annual pass holders to it is imperative to check their opening hour calendar from their official website: Legoland
