A day out at Legoland and #Sunfession competition to win £250

A few weeks ago we spent a fun filled day at Legoland Windsor courtesy of the Sun +.

I’ve been before when working as a Nanny, however Paul and the children haven’t been.  We were all very excited.

We left early morning so we had a full day to spend there.  Forward planning we took 2 buggy’s with us – if your children are small I recommend taking a buggy with you or hiring one on arrival – it is a long walk around the park and they will get tired. (you can hire a double for £14 for the full day).

Emmy and Harry we in awe of the huge Lego models and couldn’t believe they were allowed to touch them and even sit in them.

Heading into the park we took the opportunity too have a wander around and see which rides the children wanted to go on.  It soon became apparent why children under the age of 3 were free of charge, for most rides the minimum height limit is 0.9 metres tall – this meant that Harry at 17 months old was too small to go on them.

He actually didn’t mind and was happy to roam around and wave at Emmy when she was on the rides, look at the Lego models and people watch.

Emmy who is 4 years old went on quite a few rides with myself or with Paul and had a great day.  We chose a day which was overcast and it was actually raining when we left home, as a result the park was fairly empty and the longest we had to queue for a ride was 25 minutes, with the average being only 10/15 (great for a weekend).

For younger children Duplo Valley is a must!  Harry loved the playground and there were some rides he could go on – in fact he dragged us onto Fairy Tale Brook a few times and loves the Duplo Lego train.  In warmer weather make sure you take your swimming things as you can visit the drench towers and splash safari.

There re many lunch options inside the park – we chose a Pizza/Pasta buffet and if you can hold out until after 3pm the children eat for free, we all enjoyed our lunch and they were even kind enough to cook Emmy some plain pasta as she didn’t like the Bolognese pasta on offer.

After lunch we headed to the Atlantis submarine voyage  – you HAVE to visit! It is AMAZING!  You go down in submarines which take you around the centre to see the fish, and you can even see the sunken treasure and the mermaids too (of course those are made from Lego).  Emmy and Harry (as did Paul and I) thought this was fantastic and had this not have been our longest queue of the day we would have gone back again.

I would suggest getting there early and making a fully day of it – you will be tired after but you WILL have a fabulous day out.

We had a wonderful family day out, with thanks to the Sun+
