Dear guests,
As part of the Government’s containment plan for the Covid-19 coronavirus, we have taken the decision to temporarily close LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Manchester as a precautionary measure. The move is consistent with the closure of other venues and postponement of events in order to prevent further outbreak. The closure is effective as of 20.03.2020 until further notice. For further info or rebooks please contact - we appreciate your patience at this time as we respond to a high volume of enquiries.

If you have booked a ticket to visit LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Manchester between 20th March and the end of April your ticket will be valid for use on any date during 2020 (excluding 25th & 31st December) No action is required and you do not need to contact us to arrange your future visit, simply arrive at the attraction and present your unused ticket(s) that show the original date (between 21st March and 30th April 2020) at our admissions desk and the team will revalidate your tickets for entry on that date.

If you cannot return to LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Manchester during 2020, then please contact and the team will be happy to help as quickly as they can.
