Located in Barton Square at The Trafford Centre, the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre is made up of a series of interactive features to immerse kids into a world where their imagination can run wild with creative inspiration at every turn. Featuring a whole host of exciting attractions from the Kingdom Quest ride to an amazing recreation of the North West's most iconic buildings, the Centre not only provides fun for LEGO fans young and old, but fantastic educational benefits too. The Centre involves just one entry fee, with all attractions included in the cost. Tickets are available online from just £9.95 per person, and you MUST be accompanied by a child. The Centre opens at 10am seven days a week and remains open until 6.30pm daily, with the last admission at 5pm. The Lego Store remains open until 7pm. We are open every day of the year with the exception of Christmas day.

Not knowing what to expect we went with an optimistic approach. On arrival to the complex the queue was quite long, but as half term not unexpected. There were staff walking the line which was good and info readily available. We have a merlin pass so asked if there was a quicker line. The lady said the priority line was... More

What an absolute load of rubbish. We bought tickets online but still had to queue for 40 mins. Then had to queue to have our pic taken. Then yes you've guessed it queue for rides etc inside. My son is 9 loves lego but was very disappointed. To be honest I think he was too old!!! There was some building... More

Although we were aware of the current refurbishments and knew that a couple of attractions would be closed, I was surprised at the amount of noise and drilling coming from the workmen. A couple of hours there was enough to give me a huge headache. That said, we enjoyed our team in the centre. My daughter is 10 so perhaps... More

Been to the discovery centre a few times now and although our 7 year old lad enjoys it there could be so many improvements easily made. The staff could be more visible and friendly, the place needs a dam good clean. From the Lego itself to the restaurant area and all over the place tbh. Expensive for what you get,... More

Visited yesterday with three grandchildren. On arrival (pre-paid) we were told that two major parts of the attraction were closed and offered a free return visit. I informed them that the children lived abroad and were unlikely to return any time soon and respectfully requested some recompense. This was refused and so took the free visit to pass on. The...

Forget the discovery centre, go into the shop and buy some Lego. I guarantee that the kids will have as good a time and they'll have something to show for it and you'll spend less money. The activities are really aimed at smaller children (5-7 years) which means that older children feel a bit talked down to. There are multiple... More

Although refurbishment work was going on, so that we didn't see the whole thing, I won't be using my free ticket to go back. So noisy that after two hours we all had headaches. Irritating queues for everything, and the 4D film was a noisy and annoying advert for Legolas's with effects that didn't seem any more advanced than the... More

Staff were great, a special mention to 2 members of staff, 1 being Eddie Jennings who made it possible to go on a ride with one child while the other one had to watch on his own, and the young asian man, I'm so sorry I don't know his name but he worked on little car rides, my grandson was... More

This wasn't a great trip. We arrived just before midday to find a long queue out the door. A member of staff came down the queue to ask us if we had a ticket. We did not. So where then sent to another queue where we waited again and bought a ticket for the next available time at 1.30 and... More
