WWT Slimbridge

Giant LEGO Brick Animal Trail

Sat 7 July - Sun 23 September


Our awesome LEGO® brick models are back! This year, favourites like Flavia the Flamingo and Lottie the Otter will be joined by 3 new animals! Come along to Slimbridge to meet them this summer.

The amazing GIANT LEGO®brick animal trail, the only one of its kind in the UK, is returning to WWT Slimbridge Wetland Centre this summer with three NEW friends - Sam the short-eared owl, Walter the water vole and Skye the stork.

We're super-excited to welcome our new brick animals and they've been a long time in the making. Sam the short-eared owl took an amazing 80 hours to build with an incredible 37,884 LEGO bricks. 

Fourteen GIANT 4ft (1.5m) LEGO brick sculptures will be running until Sunday 23 September, all inspired by real species across our WWT centres. Returning favourites include the North American river otter, a nene (the world’s rarest goose), a giant kingfisher, frog and flamingo.

In total 253,728 LEGO bricks were used to make all 14 wetland characters!

The Giant LEGO® Animal Trail is FREE with admission (or membership) - non-members will need to purchase admission separately - either on the day or save 10% by booking online in advance.
