Five of the biggest LEGO set price increases in the UK

The LEGO set price increases have taken effect in the UK, letting us know which models have risen in cost the most. 

The LEGO Group’s promised price increases have now arrived worldwide, including in the UK and Europe. We’ve kept track of all the changes in the UK here, as well as some discounts we spotted here

Not all these increases are too severe, though some of these adjustments are notable and worth noting for those who might want to use VIP vouchers or other deals to pick them up in the future. 

5 – 10273 Haunted House 

LEGO Fairground Collection 10273 Haunted House featured

10273 Haunted House, one of the biggest and most thematically appropriate builds for the Halloween season, has gone from £219.99 to £259.99. That £40 increase is equal to an 18% rise in price.  

It still comes with the ride function and the references to LEGO Adventurers, but you’ll need a hefty discount to reach the original cost 

4 – 71043 Hogwarts Castle

LEGO Harry Potter 71043 Hogwarts Castle has also increased by £40, taking it from £369.99 and over the £400 mark at £409.99. 

Though that’s only an 11% increase, it now being over the £400 threshold might make this model harder to consider. 

3 – 75978 Diagon Alley

Similar to 76405 Hogwarts Express – Collectors’ Edition, the other huge LEGO Harry Potter minifigure-scale set isn’t quite as expensive as the train even after the price rises. 

75978 Diagon Alley has gone from £349.99 to £389.99, up £40 and 11%. 

2 – 21318 Tree House

LEGO Ideas 21318 Tree House is sticking around until 2023 and will now do so at its new price of £214.99. 

Like 71043 Hogwarts Castle, it too has passed over a significant price threshold after increasing 23% from £174.99. 

1 – 42143 Ferrari Daytona SP3

One of the newest LEGO Technic sets to launch, 42143 Ferrari Daytona SP3, has already seen a notable increase in its price, taking it from £349.99 to £389.99. 

With 3,778 pieces and no electronic components, this adjustment is unfortunate for those who may have wanted the build but didn’t manage to pick it up before September 1. However, the unique serial code to unlock exclusive rewards on the VIP Rewards Centre is still included.
