Legoland Windsor is one of Berkshire’s most popular places to visit. The theme park has plenty of rides and experiences to suit the whole family and makes for a wonderful day out.
What is there to see and do at Legoland Windsor?
Where do we begin?! Legoland Windsor is absolutely packed full of rides, shows and experiences. There is so much to see and do so you certainly won’t get round everything in one day! The park is split into different sections/zones so you will probably need a map to get around (you can find the park map here). We really enjoy visiting Legoland Windsor and see something new and different every time we go. Here are some of our favourite places to explore while we’re there…
The Lego Shop
The Lego shop is huge and located right as you enter/leave the park. It is FULL of Lego! Top Tip: Visit the shop during the middle of the day when it is much quieter as it can get very busy at the end of the day.
This area is the first part of the park you come across and is a lovely place to explore – lots of different countries and their landmarks all created out of Lego. There are moving vehicles which the children love to follow around. This is a good place to spend time if you are looking for some quiet time away from the hustle and bustle of the rides etc.
This huge green Lego brick shaped building is next to Miniland and is a large indoor area filled with Lego where children are free to use their imaginations to build their own creations. This is another nice calming area where children can go if they need some quieter time away from the rides.
If you are visiting with younger children then this is a nice place to explore. They have rides designed for younger children and a play area (DUPLO Playtown) here too.
During the warmer months Drench Towers is open to play in. Top Tip: don’t forget towels and swimwear!
This area of the park has some great rides for children of all ages. The Driving School is very popular and quite often has a long queuing time so you might want to try and head here first. Children can drive Lego cars to obtain their Lego Driving Licence.
Children can put out ‘fires’ in the Fire Academy – again this queue can get quite long!
The Lego City Deep Sea Adventure is one of our favourite rides. You take a ride underwater in a Lego submarine and get to see so many different types of sealife – including sharks! You might also see some Lego figures under water too! Top Tip: It is usually two families per submarine – try and sit at the front for the best view.
There are several performances, shows, and character and meet and greets throughout most days at Legoland Windsor. One of the most popular shows is the pirate show in Heartlake City. It’s a great live action show and runs a couple of times a day when the weather is favourable. You can see the timings on the app. Top Tip: If you would like to be involved in the show then sit in one of the front seats next to one of the red buttons and you’ve got a better chance of being chosen.
There is a small stage which can be found near Miniland and beside The Brick which often hosts live performances at various times throughout the day – the shows change throughout the year.
There is a theatre in DUPLO Valley with shows for younger children.
Not far from the main entrance is Lego Studios 4D where they hold several different themed 4D viewings each day. Check the app for more details of what is showing on the day of your visit.
There are many, many more areas, rides and places to explore but hopefully this has given you a little taster of what there is on offer!

Accessibility at Legoland Windsor
Legoland Windsor have clearly worked hard to ensure that everyone can have a fun and relaxed day out. There are several initiatives in place to help those with additional needs.
There is parking for guests with disabilities near the entrance.
Legoland Windsor offer a Ride Access Pass which is a ‘virtual queuing system designed to make reasonable adjustments to assist guests who have a physical disability or medical condition that prevents them standing for extended periods of time, permanently non-ambulant guests and guests who do not understand the concept of queuing’. You can find out more about these passes and how to apply here.
Theme parks can be very loud and overwhelming for some but there are some quieter park areas dotted around which provide some relief from all the noise of the park. Miniland is a nice place to spend some time looking at all the models and following the moving vehicles around. The Brick is a great place to build your own Lego creations and is usually quite calm. The Total Sensory Space Space is a designated quiet area.
