It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....

The Christmas lights are on in Windsor and Eton and the race has begun to grab those goodies and treats for families and loved ones to fill Santa's stockings in time for the big day.

Shopping in Windsor is a fun affair - there are loads of lovely boutiques, plus a selection of great cafes for a pit stop in between shops.

Store owners have really made an effort this year to dress up their shop windows and so the town is full of magic and sparkle oh and yes there is an M&S in Windsor too!

Visit Daniels department store for some great gift ideas and there's also a Yo! Sushi restaurant if you feel like a quick bite.

If you want to make a weekend of it why not book a night in Alma House B&B?  Mention this blog and get a free bottle of wine for a double rooms booked between now and Xmas!

Windsor Legoland Guide for Halloween 2014

Windsor, as every year, offer lots of attractions during Halloween. Everyone will find something for themselves. Undoubtedly, Legoland is the one children will be most excited about! Each year they offer something different during Halloween and school half term, and this year is no different....

Legoland's Halloween spook-tacular activities are called "Brick or Treat". They open tomorrow (18th October) and stay there until the end of half term (3rd November).  Featuring a Halloween puppet show, a fancy dress competition, dancing activities and much more.

There is one more attraction worth mentioning - LEGO Legends of Chima Fire and Ice Fireworks. On Saturdays and Sundays (18/19, 25/25 October) and Friday 31st October/ Saturday 1st November there will be fireworks displays based on a story of CHIMA (the battle between Fire and Ice Chi). It is definitively something worth watching. There are even more activities during those days such as fire juggling display and CHIMA ice brick building workshops.

If you decide to stay with us during the half term with your children please make sure to ask about Legoland tickets. We offer a discounted 2 day pass. You must book accommodation with us to get these discounted Legoland Windsor tickets:

New B&B room makeover

This year we decided it was time to upgrade our popular family room as it was starting to look a little tired and dated and the bathroom was way too small for a family of four.  So we took the bold step to close one of our single rooms and to make half of this room into a bathroom for the family room.  We knocked through, built a stud wall, put in underfloor heating and a newly tiled bathroom with large shower and then decided to upgrade the main bedroom.  We installed solid oak flooring, repainted the walls, installed new skirting boards and bought a new double bed and bedside tables.
Then we got rid of the lovely old pine bunk beds and replaced these with a day bed that pulls out to make two singles or a large double.  Some new light fittings and artwork including a chrome stags head (all the rage nowadays you know) and we were done.  See the results below. We are rather proud of it and have had some great comments.  Come see for yourself!

LEGOLAND Windsor - 2-day tickets

If you're looking for a great family day out this summer, Windsor's famous kids attraction, LEGOLAND Windsor, is now fully open and ready for a fun-filled season. The former safari park opened as Legoland in 1996 and has been entertaining children of all ages ever since.

Miniland at Legoland Windsor

Take the hill train down to the resort and visit miniland - almost 40 million LEGO bricks have been used to create the buildings, trees, landscapes, characters and vehicles.  There are famous scenes from all over the world including Big Ben in London and Buckingham Palace.  
Each area is alive with moving characters, boats sailing, noises and music.  This is a magical part that kids will be fascinated by.  They can even take skipper remote-controlled boats on miniland lake.

If the weather is good visit DUPLO Valley where the Splash Safari speaks for itself.  This will give the kids time to dry off if their clothes get a little wet!  Swimsuits are recommended for areas such as Drench Towers - which is the largest water play structure in the UK.   There are activities in this area for all ages from tots to pre-teens.

Drench Towers at Legoland Windsor
From Puppet shows to Fairy Tales there's lots going on at LEGOLAND so be prepared for a long day or consider taking your time and getting a special two-day pass.  

For kids aged 6-13 start them off early with the interactive Driving School - they watch a safety video and then take control of electric cars that they can navigate around a track with traffic lights, roundabouts and other drivers - they'll soon receive their Legoland Driving Licence - a real treat!

There's a fab Dragon Ride mini roller-coaster, The Kingdom of the Pharaohs, Pirate Falls with the Jolly Rocker swinging ship, Knights Kingdom and Land of the Vikings all to explore and enjoy.  Your day will be interspersed with entertaining shows at regularly advertised slots throughout the day and there are plenty of rest spots for snacks or lunch to keep up the energy levels. They have thought of everything at LEGOLAND Windsor - to be prepared we suggest arriving half and hour before they open to sample the shop and cafe and get your map of the park.  Be prepared for a bit of walking and the odd soaking all in the name of fun.  

Top Tip for your visit:  Go straight to the back of the park where it will be quieter at opening time and work your way towards the front.  Make sure to pack a light raincoat in case of showers and most of all relax and have fun!  For Discount LEGOLAND Windsor Tickets speak to Alma House B&B in Windsor who can arrange your accommodation and 2-day passes at good rates.
