Planning on going next year with ds who Will be about 4.5 and a baby due November.

Legoland is a must. How many days do you recommend?

Would also like to do London for a couple of days. Never really done the London sightseeing experience myself so tips appreciated!

Am in desperate need of advice on where to stay also. Should i change hotels when doing legoland? Any gems you can suggest? Just need something big enough for 2 adults and 2 children.

Thank you!

Do you realise you've started 6 threads asking the same thing? You can stay in Windsor and get a train to London.

There are direct trains to London from Windsor too! It goes into Waterloo so handy for the London Eye, Aquarium, South Bank.

Thank you for helping to report

would your recommendation be to stay in windsor and train it into London? We are comin up on train from south west and stops at paddington and reading.

Think it's going to be Windsor or Slough to stay in. Anyone got any recommendations? Ideally need ability to do bottles if breast feeding doesn't work out.

Windsor Travelodge is very central, right by the station that serves Slough & Paddington, next door to Waitrose for picnic stuff, and plenty of chain restaurants. Shuttle bus stop to Legoland is nearby (might be free, not sure).

You might want to look at Legoland Holidays too, as they usually do good deals with 2-day tickets.

We've had family stay at the Travelodge in Windsor when they come down to visit and they've always been happy with it, but last time DHs mum came down she stayed at The Trooper, its a pub but it has separate accommodation at the back.
MIL stayed in their family room which has a double bed and 2 singles. The food is really good aswell, we often eat there.

When we travel into London we usually get the Greenline coach it takes about 40minutes but it can work out cheaper than the train, it goes to Legoland aswell if you get the one coming from London rather than going to London.
