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 exciting rides and attractions inside 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 (see below).

How to get to Legoland Windsor by Tube and National Rail
From Paddington Station purchase a National Rail Ticket for the First Great Western Line to Windsor and Eton Central Station. There will be a transfer between trains at Slough Station. Total time on the train including the transfer varies between 26 and 50 minutes depending on which train you catch.
When you arrive at Windsor and Eton Central Station walk south on High Street to the bus stop in front of the Windsor Parish Church (about 1 block south of Windsor Castle). Take the Route 191 or Route 200 Shuttle bus to Legoland. Buses run approximately every 20 minutes and the ride takes about the same. This bus service is not operated by Legoland and therefore requires a separate fare, however you can purchase a combination fare covering both the train and shuttle bus at the train station when you start your trip.
Use the National Rail Journey Planner to get details and departure times for you trip.

A fantastic day out with the whole family. The theme park is always evolving and developing so if you are one who has been numerous times before, there'll always something new for you to explore. The LEGO store is awesome too, so many LEGO kits to admire at.

Kids had an amazing time at a reasonable price, taking advantage of the 2 for 1 offer in August. However, parking was difficult to find, despite arriving really early. Waiting periods and queues for the rides were extremely long. Food and drinks were extortionate, so would recommend bringing your own. All things considered, it's a decent theme park for a fun time.

A great day out, if a little pricey but the joy on the faces on the children has to be worth. Former Rides & Attractions staff (2013 & 2014 seasons). As a place of work, it is heaven. You are encouraged to allow your inner child to come out & enjoy yourself. This makes your day go well, as well as those visiting as guests. Singing 'What do we do with the drunken sailor ' is a favourite memory, along with suggesting I throw Mum & Dad overboard for not joining in.

Brilliant day out. My daughter loved the pirate and the Lego friends shows. The queues were reasonably short and we managed to get around the whole park and go on every ride, some more then once. The restaurants are reasonably priced and the toilets very clean. We can't wait to return again soon.

Fantastic day out. Plenty of parking. Lots of restaurant choices or places to eat a picnic. Great family fun with activities for all. We started going when our youngest was 2 and found lots of rides he enjoyed. My eldest is now 10, still lots of rides for him for years to come. The park is well looked after and all the toilets are clean. There are plenty of staff on hand for questions and direction as needed. The shows are great fun for all ages. Mine enjoyed the splash park area although the water is cold. I think this is quite good though as after 45 minutes they wanted to get dry and move on. This keeps the splash area from getting too crowded. Check online, or at the supermarket for ticket deals before going as you can save lots of money.
