Lego lovers will be pleased to hear that there’s a whole world of small plastic bricks coming to a gallery in Nottinghamshire.

The Harley Gallery, on the Welbeck Estate, near Sherwood Forest, will host an exhibition showcasing more than fifty Lego models of the some of the world’s greatest buildings.

The work, by Warren Elsmore, features London’s Westminster Abbey, Rome’s ornate Trevi Fountain and the iconic L’Arc de Triomphe in Paris.

A spokesman for the gallery said: “The star of the show is undoubtedly a 5ft tall by 5ft long replica of St Pancras station in London, which took more than 500 hours to build over two years.”

Elsmore, a former IT consultant, has now attracted international acclaim for his Lego work and his models have been displayed at galleries across the world.

The exhibition will also include Lego activities and workshops for children of all ages and there will also be a competition for the more competitive ‘master builders’.

The ‘Brick City’ exhibition is open from October 17 to January 10 2016 at The Harley Gallery.
