On November 17th Lego will be opening it’s 14th UK store, a flagship store in Leicester Square, London. This will be the biggest Lego retail store in the world, covering 914 sq m over two floors.
A 6.53m high replica of Elizabeth Tower will dominate both levels of the store, made from over 200,000 bricks. It will even have a working clock face, illuminated at night. Something that would have been great to have on the recent set.
The store will have the usual building demonstrations, hands-on areas, Pick & Build Brick Wall and exclusive product sets, but will also feature technologies not seen before in Lego retail stores. I wonder what they could be?
Of course I’m sad that it’s in London and not Glasgow, but this might just be enough to make me go down to the big smoke.
