Giant Lego Trail at Castle Espie
Giant Lego Trail at Castle Espie (2

The giant LEGO brick trail is returning to Castle Espie Wetland Centre. Through this trail, the WWT is using the world's most popular toy to encourage kids (and big kids) to build a better future for nature.

Visitors to WWT Castle Espie, near Comber, Co Down can enjoy the ten individually-designed LEGO brick characters for seven weeks from 11 February to 2 April (including half term holidays and St Patrick's Day). The giant animals, some up to twelve times life size, include Natalie the Nene, the world's rarest goose, Flavia the Andean flamingo, a riot of pink bricks and Kate the Kingfisher, made with help from CBBC's Blue Peter's Barney Harwood.

These magnificent LEGO brick models were created by Bright Bricks, the UK's only certified LEGO professionals, and Tom Poulsom, the famous LEGO brick 'birdman'. In total, 92,400 LEGO bricks were used over 915 hours to make all ten characters. Lottie the Otter and Bruce the Red Breasted goose took the longest time to make at 120 hours each.

LEGO Workshops

There will be a number of LEGO brick workshops alongside the trail, but spaces in these classes are filling up fast, so early booking is advised to avoid disappointment. The workshops take place every weekend (Saturday 11 February - Sunday 2 April) and during the February half term holidays (Saturday 11 - Thursday 16 February) at 11am, 1pm and 3pm.

During the hour those with pre-booked tickets will take part in three exciting tasks. At the start you will be divided into two teams and will be racing to build against the clock. Adults are to stay with their children during the workshop, there is no charge for adults at the workshop unless they are participating in the games, build and bringing home their model.

There is no extra cost to meet the giant LEGO brick animals; the trail is included in the admission price. Workshops are priced at £8.50 per participant.

To book, visit the WWT website. Get 10% off general admission when you book online.
