AN OAP was turned away from Legoland – because she didn’t have any kids with her.

Yvonne Radcliffe, 74, had travelled alone across Birmingham to visit the new £7m Legoland Discovery Centre, which had opened the day before.

But the Lego-loving mum’s plans were shattered when a security guard told her that adults were barred unless they were with a child.

The elderly pensioner was forced to walk nearly a mile back to Birmingham Snow Hill station, before getting a train back on her own.

Yvonne, from Hall Green, Birmingham, said: “I couldn’t believe it.

“Adults make Lego, it’s wonderful. Yet I wasn’t allowed in because I didn’t have a kid with me. You couldn’t make it up really.

“I think Lego is fascinating. I’ve watched documentaries on TV and saw it was opening in town.

“I told my daughter I fancied a day out to see it, so I got on the train to Snow Hill and walked the rest of the way there.

“Once I got there, I walked in and a girl stopped me and said I wasn’t allowed in. She said it’s the rules – I must be accompanied by a child.”

A spokesman for Legoland said: ”

Legoland Discovery Centres are not theme parks but small, indoor attractions specifically conceived and designed from a child’s perspective to provide safe and fun environments for families with children aged 3-10 to enjoy together.
