Art of the Brick – Southbank

It’s been a long old week at school, so today, we decided to have a little fun!

We headed to London for the Art of the Brick exhibition. Unusually for us, we took the tube.. the exhibition we’re headed to is in Waterloo, which is a simple ride on the Northern Line from Euston…

It’s very easy to find – signposted from straight outside the station, which we liked.

From the minute we arrived, it was obvious the children were going to love it.

Getting into the exhibit was very straightforward… No queues, and after a short (good) introductory video about the exhibition… you’re in…

Now, I will say, it’s not that big… but it wasn’t busy, so we didn’t feel compelled to keep moving. The children very much enjoyed taking their  time looking at each model.

There are a range of small and lifesize models… G loved posing the characters.



There are also some pretty innovative models. J was very taken with Batman’s missing arm….

And the bathtub full of blue lego was rather hand for little fingers to resist!

J loved the bat cave…


And the bat mobile (though he’d have preferred it if he could have actually sat in it… there’s on pleasing some people!)

And where else could you get your feet up with the Joker??

Even animal superheros got in on the act!!!

There was a fun area at the end, with some video games to play and you could try your hand at making your own lego sculpture

The only thing we didn’t like was the merchandise shop at the end – it was HIDEOUSLY expensive and consequently we bought nothing at all.

The exhibition closes in London on 11th September, and I’m not sure where it’s headed next…

but if  you get the chance to check it out… it’s a fab art exhibition.
