“Awesome awaits” is the slogan of Legoland, and that proves true for most of the 2 million visitors that pass through its gates each year.
Widely regarded as an attraction for families with younger children (under 10s) the theme park invites you to: “Fly through the treetops to escape fearsome dragons, ride the thrilling rapids with a Viking Fleet, join LEGO® divers on a magical underwater adventure on Atlantis Submarine Voyage or enjoy the UK’s only LEGO® Star Wars™ Miniland Model Display.”
If you’ve got young kids, Legoland Windsor is definitely somewhere you’ll want to visit before they grow up. But plan ahead to avoid the big queues and heaving crowds that have spoilt the fun for some families.
Legoland Opening Times
Legoland is generally open from 10am to 5pm every day but sometimes stays open later from 6pm/7pm on selected dates throughout the year. For more accurate details on daily opening times throughout the year click here >>

Although Legoland Windsor advertises as suitable for 2-12s, most visitors say the park is best for under 10s. Its few thrill rides would be considered tame by older kids.
People that don’t enjoy Legoland usually have two complaints: that it’s busy and that it’s expensive. But it’s not busy all the time. Avoid school holidays and weekends and you can have a stress-free day at the resort. If you can’t avoid the busy spells then make sure you buy a Q-bot to reserve your ride times. And the ticket prices are comparable to other theme parks. Where some lose out is by spending lots on pricey food, drink and merchandise once inside – avoid if you can!
Here’s our review from Nikki one of our deal hunters at FamilyBreakFinder from her trip on 2016.
Lately I’ve seen so many fab offers, and money saving tricks for Legoland, I thought it was only fair to take my little girl on her first trip to the magical Windsor resort!
Naturally I went armed with my little cardboard cut-out coupon from my half-eaten pack of Rice Crispies – Buy One Ticket Get One FREE!
… And at £50.40 (adult on-the-gate price), it was well worth it! Our daughter is under 3 so she was free, bonus!
We went with some friend’s whose little girl is 5 and she thoroughly loved every second of it, excitedly running from ride to ride!
Surprisingly, there was more than I thought for our little one to enjoy, she loved the train rides, hot air balloon ride and the LEGO Friends live shows!
By far our fave family ride was the ‘Atlantis Submarine Voyage’ – at first I thought Legoland had gone to a lot of effort putting the pretend submarines in water, just to sit in them and press buttons and watch the flashing lights…. but then, the sides of the submarine illuminated and you could see a whole underwater world beneath you!!
You are then taken on a slow ride around a large aquarium tank – a SEA LIFE centre where many species of sharks, rays and tropical fish swim past Lego models – we were all mesmerised!
[iframe width=”560″ height=”315″ src=”https://www.youtube.com/embed/jwAe76I_mLc” frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen]
Lucky for us the weather was fantastic so we could also enjoy the ‘Splash & Play’ which we were super impressed with, the kids loved running around under the fountains of water and jumping (with daddy) on the fun water slides!
All in all we had a thoroughly enjoyable (and loooong) family day out – fortunately little one (and me if I’m honest) slept the whole journey home after her fun-filled, action-packed day!
My Top Tips:
- Pack a picnic as food stalls are rather pricey and there’s plenty of lovely park areas to sit and enjoy your lunch
- Always take a mac – we got caught out on a sunny day with a freak heavy down pour!
- When you enter the park, take the train ride down to the where the main theme park is… saves you the long slog down the hill
- No need to take your pram, you can hire legoland buggies – and they’re much more fun for the kids!
What other families have said
“It is brilliant. It was very hot when we went on Saturday and the park got very busy around lunchtime, but by then we had done the rides with the family so could just enjoy the rest of the park. The mini land is amazing and the model railways captivated our three year old grandson. The live shows were good especially the Pirates. Get to the lake area early enough to get a seat on the steps with a good view of the action. Food and drinks are quite dear.”
“We are a family of four with a 9yr old and 6yr old . It was a lovely day very hot so the children made use of the splash park. It’s an expensive day but so worth it , so much to do and see though so would recommend the fast track passes which we didn’t get as you end up queuing half of the day and missing a lot without them.”
“Absolutely loved it. It was very busy and we had to queue for some rides but it was worth it. Even the heavy rain didn’t spoil it. Heartlake City and Mini Land were my faves. The live pirate show was totally immense. Would go back in a minute.”
