UGLW: Unofficial Guide to Legoland Windsor
Everything you need to know - and more - about your visit to Lego Land, one of the UK's top tourist attractions


History of Legoland

Legoland Windsor opened in 1996 on the site of the former Windsor Safari Park. Windsor Safari Park went into receivership in 1992. Although the park itself was making money, Themes International plc who owned it, was not.

The only attraction that remains from Windsor Safari Park days (apart from St. Leonard's Mansion which overlooks the park and is used for corporate functions) is the funicular railway, now known as the Hill Train, that links The Beginning area of the park with Pirates Landing.

Over the years Legoland has had extensions and additions, for example Adventure Land was not part of the original theme park.

In 2010 Jungle Coaster was removed from the theme park to make way for the Legoland Hotel.

In this section we also remember some of the other more recently closed attractions; select from the menu on the left.
