Legoland Windsor

Legoland is situated a couple of miles west of Windsor Town on the edge of Windsor Great Park. Legoland Windsor opened in 1996 on the former site of Windsor Safari Park and has gradually grown into what it is today, one of the most popular theme parks around London.

The theme park is aimed at younger kids between 3 and 12. Each year new rides and attractions are added. There are over 55 amazing interactive rides, attractions and live shows for the whole family.

Set in 150 acres of parkland, it is a fun day for children aged 3-12 and their families. Age, height and weight restrictions apply on some rides.

Young and old alike will be fascinated by the incredible Lego models throughout the park. From comical camels to fearsome fire-breathing dragons, world landmarks to musical pirates, it's amazing what can be built with Lego bricks - nearly 55 million of them!

LEGOLAND Windsor opening hours

The park is not open all year, the season lasts from about early March until the end of October, with a special seasonal opening in December (weekends only and the week before Christmas). Opening time is 10am with closing time dependent on the time of year and day of the week, between 5pm and 8pm.

For motorists Legoland is quite easy, just get off at the Windsor turn off, junction 6 of the M4 or junction 3 of the M3. At popular times the approaches to Legoland can be very congested if you come off the M4 option, so expect a tedious last couple of miles.

Do note, there is a parking charge at Legoland once you are there. This can be purchased from the Ticket Booths or Guest Services at any time during your day. Annual Pass/ Premium Merlin Pass holders get free parking.

By public transport there is a Legoland bus that shuttles during opening hours between Legoland and the two Windsor railway stations and Windsor Castle. This shuttle service is operated by the local bus company, not Legoland and there is a charge.

There is also a Green Line Legoland bus service that starts at London Victoria and goes direct to Legoland Windsor via Windsor, frequencies are around hourly. However most people will take the train to Windsor, then the shuttle bus.
