`Aunty Chris you will just love Legoland` claimed 11 year old Charlie, his twin Grace was just as convincing so off we went. Along with their mum and 15 year old brother. When the M25 is being kind It is only an hours drive from where we live in Hertfordshire. The family have Merlin passes which I think are fantastic value especially if you buy them when they are on offer every January. Once in the park lego dragons guard the rides and lego workmen peep out of greenery. It is the lego towns and cities though that are really impressive. Big Ben strikes on the hour, the London eye spins slowly as the Palace guards march beside a garden party. Paris, Belgium and even Nasa stand proudly showing the skill and the imagination of the lego creators. Trains stop at stations and boats sail on the river, all made from lego, of course. The park also has some rides that keep even 15 year old happy, the log flume and water rafts were great fun. Plenty going on tiny tots too with play areas and paddling pools. It was a hot day and the park was busy but we had a great time. It is down hill when you are walking to most of the rides which means you have an uphill walk back.
