These London Underground maps are made entirely of Lego


TO CELEBRATE ITS 150th anniversary, the London Underground is playing host to five Tube maps made entirely out of Lego.

The maps are to be displayed in a five major Underground stations in the coming months including South Kensington, Piccadilly Circus, Green Park, Stratford, and King’s Cross.

The maps show how the network has evolved over the decades from 1927 to 2020 when the line will include Crossrail – a proposed expansion of rail facilities in the capital.

Each map is made up of over 1,000 Lego bricks and took four days to build. They were created by Duncan Titmarsh, the only certified Lego professional in the entire United Kingdom.

You can also build your own – if you have the time and the bricks – by visiting the website.
