Legoland Windsor

The Colorful World of Legoland

As a child I never had Lego (it was pretty expensive toy where I was – I also never had Barbie). But I always love the idea of Lego and even dreamed to have a Lego room when I grow up, filled in with all kinds of fancy Lego special sets, with the castles and grand buildings and the whole Lego city (oh heck, I still do).

While that Lego room has to wait, going to Legoland is the second best thing! Fortunately there is one in Windsor, just a bit outside of London. Apart from Windsor, UK, you can also find Legoland in Denmark (where it comes from), Germany, two in USA, and one in Malaysia. The one in Malaysia just opened in 2012. Wish it were there when I lived in Malaysia and Singapore!

Enter the colorful world of Legoland!

Like the other theme parks Legoland has big rides and everything. But one of my favorite thing is the miniature world, where there are lots of iconic buildings made entirely from Lego.

Lego miniature world

As expected the miniatures are mostly European theme in Legoland UK. I would love to go to Malaysian Legoland to check out their miniature world as I’m sure there are a lot of Asian buildings! (From a quick Wiki glance there are Malaysian Petronas tower, Thailand palace, and China’s Forbidden City.)

There are also a lot of random Lego things scattered throughout the park:

We ended the visit at the biggest Lego souvenir store and I came home with my first tiny Lego from Car :)

While we’re talking about all things Lego, do you know that The LEGO Movie is coming out next year? I have friends working very hard on this, the teaser trailer looks great, and I can’t wait to see it!

Seems like LEGO will never grow old!

The Traveling Reader
I left home when I was 17 and never stop exploring the world since. Most days I'm a digital technician at one of the London's biggest visual effects studio. My alternate persona writes and travels and dreams of doing these as a living. I alternately call myself Indonesian or Australian whichever is more beneficial at the time, and I've been a Londoner since 2011.
