I thought the name was just a crafty way of getting you into what would be nothing more than a big shop - Boy was I wrong ! it's a play area, a tour, a hands on area, a talk about how Lego got started, there's a couple of rides and some FANTASTIC exhibits + models. Well worth the journey.

We have recently been to Windsor and to be honest if you not a lover of the big rides this is great for an afternoon The first introduction by Eddie Jennings showing how Lego was made etc was great. Great place worth a visit.

This attraction is good for young children. The rides and facilities are a bit dated but we tried to turn a blind eye to this for the children's sake. Most areas would be much improved with a deep clean. The flyer for Legoland Discovery Centre (found in nearby service stations and hotels) boasts a map which gives the impression of... More

Second time we have done the Legoland/Seaworld combo experience and given it was a Monday afternoon in term-time and our children aren't yet at school it was brilliant! We effectively had free run of Legoland which my 3 year old loved. The service was brilliant from all and namely Eddie Jennings who opened up a ride following see my little... More

£68 I was robbed for this attraction. Wow. Dick Turpin exists and he's dressed up in a Lego outfit. To charge adults FULL price is a shocker. This is a glorified soft play centre with a couple of other attractions thrown in. Oh and we also had to pay full price for our three year old who wasn't allowed on... More

Suitable for young children - but not a great attraction. Our grandchild, aged nearly four, liked it and the admission cost for him was probably worth it, but the policy of charging two seventy year olds £14.50 each just to supervise a child, makes this a very expensive attraction for what you get.
