Legoland Windsor has always been a great day out for the family, but with these all-new additions there’s even more reason to visit the park in 2018.
At Legoland Windsor, there’s something for kids of all ages. From Duplo attractions for the littler ones to elaborate Lego cities, there’s plenty to explore on a day out with the family. This year, with fresh additions, never-seen-before models and activities, there’s more than ever on offer.
Kids and adults alike will love the new replicas added to Miniland Explore the World. Making use of 12000 bricks, landmarks from four countries – China, India, Russia and Australia – have been introduced to accompany the assortment of European monuments already installed.
Once you’ve finished with the Taj Mahal and the Sydney Opera House, Miniland USA offers reconstructions of famous American sights, including a 4.4 metre tall Empire State Building. See the President in the White House, follow cars along Route 66, and search for aliens at Nevada’s Area 51 while you wander around the miniature Land of the Free. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for some of the model makers’ smaller details.
For a more interactive experience, Lego Reef features the opportunity to build your own digital fish, feed it, and watch it swim faster around the virtual aquarium. Head to the building stations to get hands on with real Lego bricks, and build crabs, starfish and submarines with the kids.
While you’re at the resort, take a day out to explore its environs. Go to see Windsor Castle, host to the royal wedding, and follow the path Harry and Meghan took on their big day. Visit during the changing of the guard, which is bursting with ceremonial pomp and always draws a crowd. But if you don’t fancy the steep entrance fees, you don’t have to miss out; Miniland has just introduced a 60,000 brick re-enactment of the event, starring the Lego Royal Family themselves.
Elsewhere in Windsor, there are more chances to explore. With child friendly restaurants, riverboat trips and the expansive Great Park – where much of the Harry Potter footage was filmed – there’ll be lots to keep you busy and wear the kids out before you head back to the hotel for more Lego-themed fun!
