Gallery: The World’s Largest LEGO Christmas Tree Pops Up in London!

Now ornaments and lights finish the tree.

Bright Bricks, the only Lego®-certified professionals in the UK, started the construction of the monstrous tree on November 8th. The tree branches were built by a team of Bright Bricks builders off-site and then transported to the station. During the wee hours of the night, the crew assembled the modular parts onto the steel frame. The frame was built by steel specialists Beamline Steel and is estimated to weight 3 tonnes.

Construction of the lego tree was then completed on November 24th after the lego ornaments were added and the lights were turned on. The Faux-Fir Lego® Christmas tree will be on display until January 4th in the lower concourse of the station next to the champagne bar, but since it’s so tall, it stretches into the upper concourse and travelers can practically see it from anywhere. When the holidays are over, the tree can be dismantled, put in storage and used another year.
