Marwell Zoo offers LEGO animal builds in the Great Brick Safari

LEGO elephant, tiger and pandas sculptures will be part of Marwell Zoo’s Great Brick Safari.

The professional LEGO builders at Bright Bricks have used 2 million LEGO bricks to create over 80 models, with specific animals found at Marwell Zoo including a red ruffed lemur and a warthog. The interactive Great Brick Safari trail opens on August 1.


Further information is available on the Marwell Zoo website:

James Cretney, Chief Executive of Marwell Wildlife said: “Families love being around nature at Marwell and the LEGO brick trail will be a fun and engaging way of highlighting some of our really important species, as well as welcoming some exciting new animals to the zoo! We are delighted to be the first zoo in the UK to host an interactive LEGO brick experience. We know our guests both old and young are going to absolutely love the trail.”

LEGO fans of all ages will also be able to try their hands at making their own animal sculptures in the LEGO brick play area. The Great Brick Safari will be included with general admission to the zoo and will run from Tuesday 1 August until Sunday 1 October.
