Brick City at New Lanark 2

Brick City is an exhibition of LEGO models showing some of the world's favourite buildings and urban icons including the Colosseum in Rome, St Pancras Station in London and Arc De Triomphe in Paris recreated solely using LEGO Bricks. LEGO fans young and old will have the chance to catch this exhibition at New Lanark from 28th June - 10th September. 

The exhibition will include a display of over 60 models made from an estimated half-a-million LEGO Bricks by Brick Artist Warren Elsmore and his team. As part of the Brick City Exhibition, there will be self-led play sessions included in the price of the ticket (30 minute slots). At the tables, there will be laminated sheets with designs to build on the themes of: buildings; plants and animals. With three levels of difficulty, there will be something for the absolute beginner to more experienced Lego builder. To allow everyone to enjoy the experience the LEGO in the Self-Led Play Area will not be available to take home. Interested in volunteering at Brick City as a Steward? Click here to apply

Visitors will also be given a voucher for 25% off New Lanark Visitor Attraction tickets which can then be purchased at the discounted rate at the main reception desk. 

Please note: all of the models are all in perspex cases (apart from St Pancras), the models do not move and the models vary in size - not all of them are large scale like St Pancras.
