Every place needs a spring clean every now and then.
The Legoland resort in Winkfield Road, Windsor, closed for two days last week while staff cleaned up exhibits ranging from a smoke-breathing dragon to Big Ben.
The dragon's teeth were in particular need of a clean-up and it took two ladders to reach the beast in his tower 3.5m above the ground.
The giant 6m high pharoah made of 200,000 bricks took even longer to reach.
Famous Miniland landmarks like Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Tower Bridge and the Miniland Royal Family all got a dusting down.
There are thousands of models made from over 80million Lego bricks spread across the theme park, all requiring daily care and attention from the five strong model team in their special studio.
The resort re-opened on Thursday to prepare for an exciting autumn of Halloween events.

More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
