"As a primary school teacher, LEGOLAND staff were excellent to communicate with and preparations were great. They provided the opportunity for a free guided tour risk assessment with my partner and I. The day went smoothly, the children enjoyed the trip, and more importantly the children learnt." - TripAdvisor Review
