The amazing Giant Lego brick animals are returning to Barnes this weekend.

From October 6 to November will families can visit the giants at the WWT London Wetland Centre.

This year they’ll be returning with three new friends - Sam the short-eared owl, Walter the water vole and Skye the stork.

The Wetland Centre are super-excited to welcome the new brick animals, which have been a long time in the making. Sam the short-eared owl took 80 hours to build with 37,884 LEGO bricks.

All Lego brick animals have been inspired by real species across WWT centres. Returning favourites include the North American river otter, a Nene (the world’s rarest goose), a giant kingfisher and frog.

The Giant Lego Animal Trail is free for members - non-members will need to purchase admission separately.

Along with the giant animal the ever-popular LEGO workshops will be available every weekend from October 6 to November 18.

The workshops will also run every day throughout half term.

The LEGO workshops cost £10.50 per person and can be pre-booked online. They are suitable for ages children aged 5 and over.
