Let’s go LEGOLAND® activities for kids London
In life, it is always good to keep an open mind!
I was always a little skeptical of LEGOLAND®. Growing up as a bit of a hippy and “hand me down” child, my experience of Lego was always a little bit different to most children today. My Lego set came in a big plastic box with no instructions or shiny pictures. To tell the truth, I was never very fond of playing with Lego finding its set ways and unyielding dynamics so restrictive.
But that was then. These days Lego has embraced the world of fantasy and although cars, trucks, planes and the like are still very much part of their repertoire so are ninjas, knights, fairies, Pharaohs and more.
Recently I was lucky enough to explore LEGOLAND® with two children in tow, and my past perceptions vanished as both the children and me became immersed in this wonderful world of fantasy. Leaving London on the train our journey took us past Winsor castle before we finally saw the great gates of Legoland.
LEGOLAND® is a Theme Park full of adventure offering a wide range of activities for kids with something for everyone. I loved that the designers had thought of allowing for some less frantic activities with the provision of wonderful playgrounds. These spaces provided us with some great time out from the huge range of other activities including scary rides, gentle rides, interactive 4d rides, pantomimes, puppet plays and live action role play. It was a busy “full-on” day as we attempted to ride every ride and explore every corner of LEGOLAND® and after 8 hours of non-stop ride hopping and show watching we had conquered about 2/3 rds of the park.
To all those up for the adventure, I recommend dressing comfortably, wear walking shoes and pack plenty of water and snacks for when you’re waiting in the line and wanting to do everything in a day.
Legoland is a theme park 1-2 hours from London. offering a wide range of children’s activities and is a must-see attraction for kids.
