London Underground Maps Made of LEGOS

To help celebrate the 150th anniversary of the London (England) Underground, also known as the “Tube”,  LEGO – the kids’ toy brick company – created five maps now on display in some of the largest Tube stations.  According to the London Underground website, http://www.tfl.gov.uk/corporate/projectsandschemes/25979.aspx each map is made of 1,000+ LEGO bricks and took four days to construct. All five maps were created by the UK’s only certified LEGO Professional, Duncan Titmarsh.

These maps show the evolution of the Tube from 1927-2020.  The South Kensington station has the 1927 map, Piccadilly Circus has the 1933 map, Green Park has the 1968 map, Stratford has the 2013 map, and King’s Cross has the 2020 map, including Crossrail, the proposed Croxley Rail Link and the proposed Northern Line Extension.

Regardless of its materials, as long as you follow the most current Tube map, it should help you get where you’re going. Remember to “Mind the Gap!”
