Having opened at the end of March 2010 we decided to visit the Legoland Discovery Center in Manchester with friends a week after opening. Legoland discovery center is located in the Barton Square quarter of the Trafford center and has ample parking space at Barton square. If you park at the Trafford center its a 5-10 minute walk through to Barton Square.
As you would expect from Legoland the attraction boasts a huge amount of things to do for kids of all ages and adults with a 4d cinema showing a couple of films (I personally recommend Bob the Builder) an interactive dark ride, factory tour showing the lego making process which the kids help along with and numerous models on display and areas to build and test your own creations. The attraction also has cafe serving hot and cold drinks and snacks and for the little ones a soft play area. Model making classes/tutorials are held during the day with kids been taught by the professionals how to build a variety of models.

The host professor brick also gets the kids to help out with the lego making process.
At the end of the process lego blocks are produced and everyone given one to take home.
Legoland discovery Centre is full of models of which some of them took months to build.
Blackpool Tower, Winter Gardens and pleasure beach.
Oblivion at Alton Towers.
And the towers themselves.
They are quite dark but the scenes go from day to night every few minutes.
Various other models.
There’s allot more models at Legoland Discovery Centre than I haven’t shown here as well as the build areas and testing areas for kids. I would advice booking in advance unless you have an annual pass as the centre does get very busy.
Legoland Discovery Centre also has an on site lego shop selling the full range of models from duplo to technix.
