Save the Date for The LEGO Group’s biggest build yet: the revamped flagship LEGO® Store Leicester Square is set for reopening!

  • The revamped LEGO Store Leicester Square will be the world’s biggest LEGO store and so much more, with jaw-dropping 3D builds and interactive LEGO brick experiences not available anywhere else in the UK
  • Fans can join the opening festivities from 10th-13th August – in line with the LEGO Group’s 90th birthday – for an event that marks 90 years of play

London, 11 July, 2022: As the LEGO Group celebrates its 90th birthday and prepares to launch its BIGGEST BUILD YET, Londoners looked on in surprise this morning as a trio of giant LEGO bricks made their journey across the capital. Their destination? The LEGO flagship store in Leicester Square, which is nearing renovation completion to make it the biggest LEGO store in the world when it reopens this August. So save the date – 10th-13th August – and join the opening festivities at a place like no other, for an event that marks 90 years of play!

The new-look store will feature out-of-this-world 3D builds inspired by ‘Stories from Britain’ including Harry Potter’s Gringotts and Diagon Alley, James Bond’s Aston Martin and more hands-on LEGO experiences not available anywhere else in the UK, plus the ’90 Years of Play walkthrough’ which in 2022 will be dedicated to celebrating the LEGO Group’s 90th anniversary.

New hands-on innovations will include the Storytelling Table where LEGO fans can go behind-the-scenes of the LEGO design process via interactive areas that allow them to “meet the designers” through on-screen interviews and videos. In addition, the Personalisation Studio invites visitors to make a memento of their visit by reimagining themselves in LEGO form, either as a portrait from the Mosaic Maker or an iconic Minifigure from the LEGO Minifigure Factory.

Other new interactive experiences in the ultimate LEGO playground will include:

Tree of Discovery: An interactive model that showcases LEGO storytelling on a huge scale. The 880,000 piece structure will be the centrepiece of the store and is an expression of the LEGO Group’s commitment to being inclusive and having a positive impact on society and the planet. Visitors of all ages are invited to explore a magical wonderland hidden inside the tree through windows in its rainbow trunk.

Natali Stojovic, Head of LEGO Retail said, “We’re so excited to announce the reopening of the LEGO Store Leicester Square. We have many loyal fans in the UK so we’re looking forward to thanking them for their passion for the LEGO Group by giving them the world’s biggest LEGO store on their doorstep – and it will be so much more than a store! The 3D builds will tell unique stories inspired by British culture, there will be hands-on play experiences for all ages and a dedicated ’90 Years of Play’ walkthrough to celebrate the 90th year.”
