Legoland Windsor

Based in Windsor the Legoland resort offers 55 rides and attractions. Aimed at children from 3 to 12 it offers a range of different themes, including vikings, ninjas and Star Wars.

I was incredibly lucky to win 2 tickets to Legoland earlier in the year and when I saw the prices I was glad I had! Prices vary dependent on the day you visit but they start at £30 and go up to £50 and there's no lower price for children, so if you're a large family this could be an expensive trip! The tickets we had were for 2 adults so I bought our 3 year old's ticket through the website before travelling. I also used our Tesco clubcard vouchers meaning I got the ticket for around half the usual price! There was also the parking charge to pay for and I pre-booked that too. 

As we are based in Nottingham it would have been quite a trek for one day so we headed down the night before and stayed in a Holiday Inn Express, which was a bargain and cheaper than a Travelodge!

As we arrived at the park our 3 year old, Joseph, decided he was going to walk all day and didn't want the pushchair. This was a huge mistake! Obviously there was lots of walking but I don't think any of us were prepared for it being as hilly as it was! We also somehow got a bit confused by the map and signs and went in the wrong direction a couple of times! 

The park is a mix of models and rides and I'll be quite honest that some of them were a little dated. This didn't stop the fun though!

Our favourite part was definitely the Ninjago area! Joseph is a huge fan of the series and we all loved the interactive 3D ride!

This new addition brings the park a little more up to date and we had already been considering a visit because of the new Ninjago area. I do wonder thought that if we had paid full price we may have been a little disappointed. Now, I'm not saying it isn't still worth a visit, as it definitely is, especially for Lego lovers but I do say that you should hunt down a bargain!

As you can see, we had lots of fun!
