Ahead of reopening for its 2023 season on Friday 17 March, The LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort has started work on its exciting multi-million-pound vision to create the UK’s first LEGO® Woodland themed holiday village.
Opening in Spring 2024, the £35 million LEGOLAND Woodland Village will feature 150 accommodation lodges in its Phase One development, attracting thousands of UK and international visitors to Windsor, who will be able to enjoy creating magical memories together as a family surrounded by nature.
The 10-acre site which is designed around the Resort’s woodland area and lake will also host enchanting nature trails complete with an amazing variety of animals built out of LEGO® bricks, a family entertainment space, an on-site restaurant, brick building activities and story time areas.
John Jakobsen, Chief Operating Officer for the LEGOLAND Resorts Group, said:
“Today’s announcement for LEGOLAND Windsor acts as a blueprint for future accommodation sites, we may create in the other nine LEGOLAND Parks we have globally. Merlin Entertainments have a clear focus on moving to becoming a leader in our industry for carbon neutral location-based entertainment. We have been working actively to implement and maintain sustainability across our LEGOLAND® Parks, as well as our other hotels and attractions. We continue to review our working methods, procedures and purchasing, to enable us to establish our overall objective to help ‘build better’ and make the world a more awesome place for future generations.”
The Woodland Village’s operational energy will be fossil fuel free once complete and this will be the first operationally carbon-neutral accommodation built by LEGOLAND owner Merlin Entertainments, across its global theme park operations. Merlin Entertainments and LEGOLAND Windsor will achieve this by working with The Carbon Trust on developing a robust carbon reduction plan, which will adopt low carbon technologies, energy efficiency and high-quality offsets.
LEGOLAND Windsor Resort continue to develop and invest, with the addition of new attractions for the 2023 season including LEGOLAND Ferrari Build and Race, and LEGOLAND Adventure Golf.
