Legoland Windsor marks Platinum Jubilee with majestic Miniland display
LEGOLAND Windsor has unveiled a mini-majestic display to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
The model makers at the resort took 282 hours to build the creation, which stretches across several scenes in the park’s iconic Miniland attraction.
Made out of 18,000 bricks, it features models of The Queen, members of the Royal Family the Red Arrows and a street party scene.
Guests who visit the Resort this Bank Holiday weekend will be the first to see the detail which has gone into creating each scene.

It features a Red Arrows fly-over display, the Tree of Trees and a celebratory street party in front of Windsor Castle.
Paula Laughton, chief model maker at LEGOLAND Windsor Resort, said: “The royal connection between Windsor and Her Majesty meant that our Model Maker team had to pull out all the stops to mark this monumental occasion here in Miniland.
“It’s always a joy to be able to recreate iconic moments in British history in LEGO form, and we hope guests to the Resort will enjoy catching a glimpse of The Queen as they’ve never seen her and The Royal Family before with a little miniature majesty.”
The miniature Buckingham Palace Balcony features The Queen, the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with their three children standing together waving out to the crowd below.
The crowd surrounds a 5,075 LEGO brick version of the Tree of Trees.
