legoland windsor

We were kindly invited to visit LEGOLAND® Windsor  for a fabulous family day out on Sunday and it was the most gloriously sunny day to be outside and enjoy the wonders of LEGO.

I have to kick off by stating the resort is a little bit mind-blowing and this applies even if you’re not a fan of LEGO. Do non-fans actually exist though?!

Playing with legolego for kids

With over 55 rides and attractions where children can find themselves flying through the treetops, escaping dangerous dragons to riding on jaw-dropping rapids with a Viking fleet, there REALLY is something there for everyone.

In fact, there is SO much to do, you need a whole weekend there to appreciate it all, or make that a week.

Now visiting on what felt like the hottest day of the year so far and on a Sunday too, meant we were fully prepared for the queues- and were seriously grateful for priority tickets on some of the rides for the purpose of this review.

I would recommend getting there as early as possible to avoid queues but do go expecting them. You can purchase Q-Bot ride reservation passes at different levels so get near instant access or reduced waiting times on queues.

…The boys were beyond excited for receiving their driving licences after a few laps in their LEGO cars with Oliver even offering to drive us home at the end of the day!

I loved that you could wonder around for hours and just marvel at the size, scale and attention to detail of what can only be described as LEGO sculptures everywhere- the iconic recreated landmarks were simply dazzling (look at London and Paris-wow)!

Amazing huh?!

Xander and Oliver literally oohed and ahhhhed their way through the whole day.

I loved that the boys could fit into a large buggy easily so while the resort is vast, Peter and I could easily push them around. Don’t they look cute?!

Whiles there, we took in a high energy show (can’t remember the name but various women in pastel outfits that made me want to be 12 again, sung and danced in the sunshine for us). We also enjoyed fairground games (losing them all), took boat rides around a LEGO lake that saw us all getting sprayed-sounds of me shouting, ‘my hair, my hair’ are still echoing round the place and ate more our body weight in sandwiches and crisps!

I actually can’t remember laughing as much as we did on Sunday.

Such a super day out for all the family.

We’ll be back.

    What a fantastic day out. I love it when the whole family can have such a fun tim and clearly there is a lot to do and see there. I really have to take my daughter to Legoland – think she’d love it – and I think I will too! All those model cities and Lego figurines are so impressive! x

    I’ve never been to Legoland. I keep hearing great things about it though, so will have to take the kids one day – they’d love it! #brilliantblogposts

    I have not yet told my five year old there is such a place because we will have to move in. I think non Lego lovers live in a secluded part of the world with people who dislike chocolate..The pictures are stunning as per usual, the one with little man in a sharks mouth made my heart melt! I like the possibility of ride reservation to minimise queuing as they tend to bring out the Hulk version of my son..I think I have to go to the Legoland driving school, I may be able to park one of those! The buggies are a great idea as even eager little legs get tired and carrying 3 stone worth of child is getting tricky..glad you had a marvellous time, thank you for linking up #fortheloveofBLOG

      This might just be the best comment of all time, had me cracking up! I literally asked if I could drive one too-I want a Lego licence. The best day ever! x

    I remember going to legoland as a child when it first opened. I’d love to take Luca as he too loves Lego (how could he not his Daddy has forced it upon him ;-)). Looks like you had a great day out and that buggy will be handy for Ant to push me and Luca round the park in. X

    I didn’t know there is a LegoLand in Windsor! Once Big F is a little older we’ll have to go. At the moment I don’t think he is capable of dealing with queues…

    It sounds like you had a really lovely day out. My boys both love lego (Daniel in particular) so I know they would really enjoy themselves too. They had a lovely time when we took them to the discovery centre in Manchester last year but I’d imagine that it doesn’t really compare to toe “proper” one.

    Legoland is great, we went last year for our Eldest’s 4th Birthday. He loved it, we are really looking forward to going again this year. The driving school was a definite favourite of his too. We managed to go out of school holidays, and it made the queues much better. x #fortheloveofBLOG

    It really is one of our favourite places to go! My two crack me up on the driving thing as all they do is crash into walls and look at me in fear!!! I can’t wait to go again over the summer! x

    Sounds like you had a great day. We took my daughter to Legoland for her third birthday three years ago and had a fantastic day although I do remember it being very busy. We had to queue for at least half an hour for every ride so I can definitely see the benefits of having Q-Bot passes. I was wondering if they have any Lego Friends models or attractions at the site now as they are one of my daughter’s favourite things at the moment. x

      Yes think the Lego Friends were the dancers and saw a lot of games/rides related to these too x

    Hi Vicki, I’ve never been to LegoLand, but it looks amazing! I can’t believe what can be built from lego! I have visions of Oliver helping you test drive the BMW all the way home!

    That looks like so much fun! We went a couple of years ago in the summer holidays and I have to admit it was torture! There were soo many people there, each ride had at least an hour’s wait so the kids only got to go on about 4 rides all day. It was rather a shame. I really want to take them back when it is quieter. There was a restaurant that did gluten-free food too which was a real bonus.

      Fab about the restaurant, sorry to hear about the queues, those q bots make life easier but not everyone wants to pay extra I know x

    My parents live quite near to Legoland so when we were living back in the UK we used to go there all the time – I’ve been there in snow, in scorching sun and everything in between and we’ve loved it every time! I was a massive sceptic before going as I’m not a lego fan (don’t shoot me!), but even I fell in love with the place, and despite going there so many times it never got boring, for any of us, which in itself is quite impressive.

    The only downside is it’s quite expensive but for those in the southeast it’s worth getting an annual Merlin pass so you can go there and to lots of other places that the kids love as much as you want.

    So glad you had such a great day 🙂

    My daughter has been desperate to go for a while now, having heard reports from her friends. I must admit, having read your review, I’m a bit more enthusiastic about it myself! We’ll have to plan a day out during the summer holidays 🙂

    Spud has asked to go in Sept for his 8th birthday and I’ve been dreading the queues as we’ll also have Flump- his VERY impatient 5yr old sister! I didn’t realise they offered a priority pass so will definitely be having one of those thank you very much!! Those buggies are such a fab idea, not too babyish to put the older kids into and save their wee legs – nothing worse than having a grand day out with a tired, grumpy child in tow.
    To be honest I think they’ll struggle to get me past little London – how impressive is that??!! So glad you posted this, I’m actually looking forward to it now- thanks! 🙂
    (Were the girls ‘Lego Friends’ by any chance?? Flump has zero interest in Lego but has the Lego Friends app and constantly plays the ‘catchy’ tunes. OK I admit it, I sing along too….. “Meeeee and my girls, best friends for everr….” 😉

    We love Legoland, have been a few times before, and always love coming back. Getting the Q-Bot ride reservation passes is a must as the queues can be never-ending, so worth it. Shame we were away as we live not too far from Windsor xxx

    Isn’t LEGOLAND just the best! We always stay over when we take the kids because it’s quite far from where we live and we make a whole weekend of it. It never ever fails to disappoint! Fab weather really is the icing on the cake isn’t it 🙂 Looks and sounds like you had a blast – reminds me to book tickets, we haven’t been for a while! x
