Having grown up creating entire worlds out of LEGO, a visit to one of the UK’s top visitor attractions, the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre, sounds even more exciting for the parents than it does for the kids. Aside from a whole lot of LEGO (2 million pieces, apparently!), there are attractions, rides, a 4D cinema, and some activity areas that will really put your children’s LEGO building skills to the test. We especially like the look of the LEGO Racers Build & Test zone, MINILAND, and the hands on workshops with the Master Model Builder. Being completely wrapped up in Princessy pink things, my daughter is also dreaming of the Princess Palace area with its own special collection of pink building blocks and elegant arches for making her own fairytale castle.
For younger children, there is a soft play area featuring enormous soft LEGO bricks, and the DUPLO Village. There are also family toilets (large enough to get everyone in there, plus the buggy!), baby changing facilities, a safe place to leave your buggy, and the whole place is fully pushchair and wheelchair accessible.
Have you been to LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Manchester? We’d love to read your review!
