Visitors to London this summer are being invited to help build a giant map of the world from one million Lego bricks at the Southbank Centre.

Our World in Lego is running as part of the Festival of the World celebrations.

Each day from 12 noon to 4pm until September 9th, children aged five and up can help to recreate the giant map of the world, which measures 12 by five metres. It will feature more than one million Lego bricks in 21 different colours on 4,000 building plates designed especially for the Festival.

Build stations managed by volunteers will be positioned around the designated area, with template instructions available for each separate building plate.

The public will also be invited to help build a boundary wall made up of 4,800 Lego Duplo bricks, which will surround the area. Other features will include landmarks from around the world such as Big Ben, the Empire State Building, Taj Mahal, Sydney Opera House and The Great Sphinx of Giza, as well as four mountain ranges (the Alps, Andes, Himalayas and Rockies).
