Legoland Windsor – Review

We had a great weekend at Legoland Windsor in June 2019. We were lucky to have stayed at the Legoland Hotel.

Check out our review of our themed room here: https://1ststeps.blog/2019/06/20/legoland-hotel-themed-room-and-lego-treasure-hunt/

Miniland was breathtaking with loads to see. The Nasa rocket took off every 6 minutes. There was a racetrack with cars that would race, moving vehicles, sailing boats and sculptures from all around the world.

The Star Wars Experience was fascinating. Even if you are not a Star Wars fan, the sculptures reenacting parts of the film was yet again amazing!

Duplo Valley was a large area that has a puppet theatre, a splash park, rides and a big play area called Bricksville. The splash park is fab in the warm weather to cool the kids down.

One of our favourite family rides was Fairytale Brook. The children loved it. It was literally sailing through all the classic fairy tales with some very impressive lego animatronics and sculptures.

Heartlake City has some lovely shops, an All You Can Eat Pizza restaurant and shows throughout the day. We caught the Pirate Ship show but unfortunately we missed the Lego Friends show. We hired a buggy here also.

We would definitely recommend a visit to Legoland. Such a fun place and we were in awe of the talents of the Lego model builders.

Legoland Hotel Themed Room and Lego Treasure Hunt

We absolutely loved our stay at the Legoland Hotel Windsor. The themed room was amazing and included in the price of our stay was a Lego Treasure Hunt. The kids loved this. I did too to be honest. It was a fun thing to do as a family and at the end the children got a Star Wars Lego pack each which was also great fun to build together. Check out our video tour of the room…..

Lego Treasure Hunt

I agree that themed rooms can be costly but they do add to the magic of a special trip.

Legoland Hotel – Our Review

Wow!! What a fantastically themed hotel! We were really looking forward to this trip and it did not disappoint (apart from the weather, but hey, we are in Britain). The structure was fantastic and the kids loved all the Lego models that were dotted around. There was a shop, restaurant, swimming pool, bar, and entertainment which ran from 5 – 8.30pm each night. My other half was also very excited about the Playstation Room!!

Hotel tour

The hotel had it’s own entrance to the theme park and we were provided with brochures upon arrival to plan our visit. The restaurant was all you can eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Checkout was also very easy as we only had to post the keys. The shop sold mainly Lego toys, t-shirts etc. Of course, the rooms were fabulously themed and included a Lego Treasure hunt for the kids. A room tour blog coming soon!!

We visited on a Sunday and Monday in June, queues were approximately 20 -30 mins per ride. The one night, two day stay cost us £414 for a family of 4 with breakfast included. This was definitely worth it. A fab experience for the whole family!

Gower Heritage Centre – Family Days Out UK

During the Easter holidays we were excited to visit the Gower Heritage Centre in Swansea. We had a jam packed day, especially as there was an Easter event going on….

We visited the museum area first, then went onto the small farm area which had some lovely chickens roaming about. There was a ‘square’ area that contained lots of tables and chairs, a bar, a café, some vintage games and a Punch and Judy puppet show.

Educational
Welsh Rarebit

 The only negatives we felt were the price of food – we paid £7.99 for Welsh Rarebit which is basically cheese on toast, and the climbing frame was really challenging and big even for our 7 year old.

However, you are welcome to take a packed lunch which we highly recommend.

Meeting the Easter Bunny

The Easter event was fantastic and the lady who played Alice was amazing, so motivated and made it so much fun for the kids. The event was Alice in Wonderland themed with special arts and crafts sessions (at an extra cost – on average £2.50 per activity), tea and games with Alice and the Mad Hatter.

Egg cup decorating

The tea with Alice and the Mad Hatter included free sandwiches, squash and cakes – amazing. The biscuit decorating was also free.

A great day out – we highly recommend. It cost approximately £7 per person for entry so great value for money.

Family Days Out UK – Raglan Farm Park

Fun at the farm. A visit to a farm park is a great day out for the family. Being active whilst getting fresh air and having fun is so important to our health and wellbeing. Our kids love coming back here time and time again. Activities that are indoors include play areas,  a sand pit, bouncy castles and some animals so it doesn’t matter if it’s raining, there will be something to do. Outdoor activities include a farm with animals to feed (carrots are approx. 50p a bag); a children’s zip wire, a tractor ride (extra cost at £1 per person) and a park.

Full coverage of our day

Food wise, there is an under cover seating area with a burger van type array of food.

It’s also a very inexpensive day out for the family. It cost us around £6 per person.

A thumbs up from us
