LEGOLAND Windsor’s new Woodland Village gains hospitality hub

29 May 2024

London-based RED Construction Group has completed work on a new hospitality hub at LEGOLAND Windsor’s Woodland Village.

Valued at £35 million and opened this May, the village includes 150 accommodation lodges, nature trails, brick-building activities, story time areas, and a host of LEGO-built woodland creatures.

It’s been incorporated into the resort’s surrounding woodland space.

The team at RED Special Projects were tasked with providing amenities for the thousands of UK and international visitors expected to stay at the Woodland Village each year.

Their new hub features an on-site restaurant, industrial kitchen, entertainment space with various play areas, a stage and a bar.

David Nelson at Merlin Entertainments, the Poole-based operator of LEGOLAND, said: “When investing in such a famous UK landmark destination, it’s important to surround yourself with partners that are just as passionate about the project, and able to deliver some very unique and bespoke works.

“The completion of this project, among others, tells us we’ve found that with RED Special Projects.

“The Woodland Village and all the facilities within it will create long-lasting magical memories for the families that come here, and it makes for an exciting addition to LEGOLAND Windsor.”

Nathan Farrar, construction director at RED Special Projects, added: “Construction can deliver so much for the people it serves, and nowhere is that easier to see than at LEGOLAND Windsor with this Woodland Village.

“We’ve built a great partnership with Merlin Entertainments, helping them generate long-lasting memories for the next generation.

“This was a complex scheme that really benefitted from bespoke solutions, and we’re enthused by its cultural impact and the legacy we leave behind.”

Merlin also operates Warwick Castle, where it recently commissioned RED Special Projects to build a £10.3 million 60-room hotel – due to open in late July.
