LEGO® was founded by Ole Kirk Christiansen in 1934. The name comes from the Danish words "Leg godt", meaning "Play well".

In 1968 the idea of making a permanent exhibition of LEGO models was hit upon and the first LEGOLAND opened in Billund, Denmark.

In 1992 Windsor Safari Park went into receivership and four years later in 1996 LEGOLAND Windsor opened on the site, using 25 million LEGO bricks.

Today, LEGOLAND Windsor currently offers over 50 interactive rides and attractions, 11 restaurants and cafés and seven shops. At its peak, LEGOLAND Windsor employs up to 155 full time staff and a further 775 seasonal staff. Since the opening of LEGOLAND Windsor, LEGOLAND California opened in 1999 and more recently LEGOLAND Deutschland opened in 2002.
