*Ad – press trip to Legoland Discovery Centre Manchester
Last weekend while I was enjoying myself at the BlogOn conference over at Hotel Football, Mr B took the girls on a day our around Manchester. He popped into InflataNation, then over to the Legoland Discovery Centre Mnachester.
Mr B and L love Lego and now she’s getting older she’s getting much more into the proper grown-up Lego. Much to his delight!
The Legoland Discovery Centre in Manchester promises lots of fun and a great day out for the whole family, they were not disappointed. It’s the ultimate indoor Lego playground filled with adventure and creativity.
It’s a magical experience to see. Specifically designed for children aged 3-12 years. Adults do have to be accompanied by a child to enter the attraction, but they do offer adult only events. It’s home to the UK’s only Lego VR Experience, which sees fans immersed in a 360-degree world.
There is much to do here and explore, fantastic for when the weather outside is not so good. You can watch your children’s face light up in amazement at what they see and build.
The Lego builders take huge amounts of care in the builds, they are geniuses to what they do with small bricks!

What We Thought
It does pay to book in advance as it does get very busy and you don’t want to be turned away. As it was a Saturday Mr B said it was extremely busy and they couldn’t get to everything to see and do while they were there, but they still had lots of fun nonetheless.
The three-storey play area in the Ninjago City Adventure zone was a huge hit along with the Duplo Farm for younger visitors. The 4D cinima experience was fantastic and always a surprise with the water shooting out!
In the Miniland over 1.5 million bricks make up an interactive city; towers glow and airships swoop around while kids watch and play. It’s one part not to be missed.
The facilities are great, family restrooms, and baby changing facilities. The first intro part of the attraction isn’t buggy friendly, but you can leave your buggy in a buggy park. The rest of the centre is fine for both buggies and wheelchairs. The coffee shop is great for a pit stop for hungry tummy’s. You will find sandwiches and snacks, coffee for the parents and soft drinks.
