We travel full-time as a family and I've just started blogging and freelance writing with no set place to call home, I'm now sharing my family's adventures online. Please visit my blog at www.timetowalkabout.com

Let your imagination run wild
An all-round family attraction that takes your mind to many different fantasy lands, the Legoland Windsor Resort provides you with lots to see and do.
Opened in 1996 it is the second Legoland built outside of Denmark and covers 61ha, which means a lot of walking to see and do everything.
There are eleven themed areas across the park, each with its unique style ranging from Ninjago land to pirates and knights all perfectly aimed for their target market of children from toddler to pre-teen age.
At the time of our visit, there was a star wars attraction which was pretty cool to see. It was made with 1.5 million bricks on a scale of 1:20, and follows the path of the Star Wars timeline
The Ninjago was another fun one as it's a 4D interactive family ride.
And for more of a thrill ride, we took the kids on the Dragons Apprentice rollercoaster that's located in the Knights Kingdom.
We found the height restrictions on the rides to be good as unlike other theme parks the kids were able to go on all the rides though still needed to have an adult with them on some, this gave them the ability to feel more independent in the park.
Ques for rides got longer and longer through the day and we ended up avoiding some of the rides due to this. So unlike us, I would recommend you research the popular rides before going so that you can do them first and avoid the long ques, in the hour just before closing we managed to do several of the popular rides without any long wait time.
You could easily spend several days here having fun. Unfortunately for us, we only had a day pass but would go again if the opportunity arises.
Getting to the park is relatively easy with buses running directly to the park from several locations around London and parking is available on site though it will probably fill quickly during school holidays.
There are lots of food options in the park, but like most theme parks it's not cheap.
