Due to open in spring 2023, the £35m LEGOLAND Woodland Village will feature 150 lodges, an on-site restaurant and a family entertainment hub.
The 10-acre site which is designed around the Resort’s woodland area and lake will also host enchanting nature trails complete with a variety of animals built out of LEGO® bricks as well as family-friendly brick building activities and story time areas.
Divisional director for LEGOLAND Windsor Resort, Helen Bull, said: “Our vision to create the first LEGO themed Woodland village is an innovative way of demonstrating how LEGOLAND Windsor Resort will continue to meet the growing needs of our guests and will be a major economic boost for the local area providing high quality and sustainable tourism for the future.”
Described as a “haven to retreat to after a busy day at the park”, the Woodland Village will be located in a meadow on the outskirts of LEGOLAND, just a few minutes’ walk from the theme park.
The Woodland Village will be the first operationally carbon-neutral accommodation built by LEGOLAND owner Merlin Entertainments. Its energy will be fossil free and then LEGOLAND Windsor will work with The Carbon Trust to adopt low carbon technologies, energy efficiency and high-quality offsets.
John Jakobsen, chief operating officer for the LEGOLAND Resorts Group, said the creation of the holiday village was a “blueprint for future accommodation sites”.
He added: “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.”
Cllr Andrew Johnson, leader of the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead, said: “This additional visitor accommodation will enable families to stay longer locally, giving them time to enjoy much of what Windsor has to offer as a thriving and welcoming town.”
It follows the announcement of the new Ferrari Land opening this summer, featuring three interactive zones and a life-size LEGO Ferrari model.
