You can buy all the Lego, in all the formats – obviously they want you to buy the branded, licensed “sets” but if your lad wants to blow his wad on yellow 2×8 bricks only, that can be done.
Dunno how much fun a 2.5 year old will have, they are a fickle bunch in my experience, but it is generally aimed at younger kids, so there will be plenty of stuff you can go on. That said, there will probably be a few things that a 6 year old could go on that a 2.5 year old can’t.
Usual theme park format – the food and refreshments you can buy onsite are over-priced and not great quality, you can either live with it or take sandwiches (I’d take sandwiches).
My two actually really enjoyed the lego town sets (not expected, they both went mainly for the rides). There was also a fantastic Star Wars area which we all liked, but I’m not sure if that was permanent or not, so it might not be there?
A few of the rides will involve getting wet, there’s enough that don’t that it won;t ruin your day if you want to avoid them.
Just to check – you are talking about the proper Legoland in Windsor, aren’t you? All the above applies to that. All I’ve ever heard about the place in Manchester (Trafford Centre?) was that it was massively disappointing…Posted 3 years agopackerMember
Yep, there is lots there for all ages.
However, we did the same as the OP is going to do (i.e. took a 5 year old and a 3 yr old), and the problem we found was that the younger one got upset because they couldn’t go on all the rides the older one was going on, and understandably got frustrated queuing for things they weren’t allowed on.
We ended up splitting up and doing totally separate things for most of the day to keep them both happy.
Yep the splash area is good so take trunks and a towel.Posted 3 years ago
It’s an inset day at nemesis Jnr’s school next week so we’ve told him we’ll go to Legoland which he’s massively excited about.
It was his 6th birthday a short while ago and we’ve told him he can buy something there with some cash he got. What are the shops like – same as toys R us but all RRP or is there actually anything there that you can’t get elsewhere?
Also, will it be a fun experience for nemesis jnr 2 at 2.5yrs old?

Should be plenty to keep the youngest one amused (Fairy Tale Brook, Boat School, Train ride etc) and I’d highly recommend the Atlantis submarine ride which has lots to see. My two have a bit of an age gap between them (7 years) so myself and the good lady wife tend to split some of the rides so neither are bored.
Inset days are generally good days to go, the last time we went on an inset day the park was empty with the longest queue being about 5 minutes.
The shop sells all the current ranges plus loads of other Lego merchandise. They also have an area where you can make your own figures which you can’t do elsewhere. If you have a Merlin pass you get a discount too (can’t remember if it is 10 or 20 percent).
If it is hot you could take swimming gear and go up to the Duplo water park, be warned that the water can be freezing!
Lots of decent food places in the park. Our favourite is the chicken place in the castle, portions are huge and relatively well priced. Again, Merlin pass holders get money off food and drink.
The train back up the hill is a god-send at the end of the day, especially with little’uns. Just be aware that it can get a bit busy as everyone has the same idea.Posted 3 years agomick_rSubscriber
My kids were most excited about the driving school – think you can book it ahead. We went to Denmark and got tipped off to go straight there 1st thing to book an early slot. Conveniently looks like Windsor age limit is 6 yrs – in Denmark it was 7 and our youngest had to do some very convincing fibbing….. Justified it to himself due to building age 7 plus Lego kits – so that was his Lego age 🙂
Maybe best to take some ID if your 6 yr old is small.Posted 3 years ago
