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.

2 Star Rating Legoland is fun and exactly what you expect, BUT there are a lot of issues. Here are some: when they shut a lot of the rides for maintenance during the Easter Holiday; only 1 in 4 baby changing facilities are working: the train that takes you from the park back to the exit up a steep hill is out of order and you have to push two kids in a pushchair up the hill to leave, all the while trying to get these kids to leave; also all the Lego needs a good clean. All these things take the shine off, and I'd expect it all to be working and clean at the beginning of the season.

5 Star Rating Fun for kids and adults alike. Even the rain couldn't dampen our spirits. This was a visit during their Christmas opening hours; the number of trees and decorations was stunning, the Father Christmas we saw was authentic and the present not stingy, there were plenty of festive activities around the park which was not as busy as in the summer months so the queues for the rides (that were open) were very short. We had a great day.
