The theme park contains over 50 interactive rides, shows and attractions and is located in attractive parkland bordering Windsor Great Park.

The theme throughout Legoland is letting kids become heroes, whether being fire fighters at the Fire Academy, pirate boat captains at Pirate Falls or helicopter pilots at Duplo Valley Airport.

Legoland Windsor was opened in 1996 and contains about 55 million Lego bricks. It had around 2 million visitors in 2012.

The entire grounds of Legoland Windsor occupy over 150 acres (61 hectares) and the area which is accessible to guests occupies 72 acres (29 hectares).

New at Legoland

Legoland continues to receive investment. In 2015 the Traffic area was converted to be part of LEGO City. The Driving School was improved with another lane and more cars and there are changes at Coastguard HQ (previously known as Boating School), with more boats and upgraded scenery. A new area "LEGO Friends Heartlake City" has been created which features meet and greets and a live action show in the harbour area. But 2015's biggest change is the addition of a new ride, Mia's Riding Adventure.

2014 saw the re-vamping of Pirate Falls in an area now known as Pirate Shores. This area also hosts the re-launched and re-named Castaway Camp.

2013 saw the re-vamp of Duplo Land, changing name to Duplo Valley and having most of its attractions refreshed. This area is aimed at the youngest visitors. A new water play attraction, Drench Towers was added there.

Legoland is currently closed

Legoland Windsor is currently closed and will re-open on Friday 11 March 2016.
