The Guinness World Record for the largest Lego structure ever built has been broken as part of the UK launch of Land Rover’s new Discovery.
Bear Grylls, Zara Phillips and Sir Ben Ainslie took part in the live reveal of the 13-metre high Lego version of London’s Tower Bridge made from 5,805,846 individual Lego bricks, breaking the previous Guinness World Record by 470,646 pieces.
Led by the UK’s only Lego Certified Professional, Duncan Titmarsh, it took five months for expert Lego Master Builders in the UK to construct the incredible Tower Bridge structure. It was erected in the grounds of Packington Hall, Warwickshire, UK – close to Land Rover’s Solihull plant, where New Discovery will be produced.
