For a couple of weeks, there will be an exhibition of London-inspired models made from Lego — on display in the Orbit observation thingy in the Olympic Park.

Naturally, there’ll be a Lego Orbit next to a Lego stadium in a Lego Olympic Park.

There will also be miniature sculptures of St Paul’s Cathedral, the Elizabeth Tower (aka, Big Ben) and mobile phone company formerly known as the Millenium Dome as well as other London symbols; the routemaster bus, the black cab, the penny farthing and a red telephone box.


On hand to answer questions, Warren Elsmore will be in residence at the ArcelorMittal Orbit during half-term week. Visitors will be able to watch as Warren ‘live builds’ a 2m tall scale model of the ArcelorMittal Orbit using 100,000 tiny bricks; in addition there will be a stash of bricks on hand to play with.

The exhibition runs from 15th – 22nd February 2015. Entrance to the exhibition is included in the standard price of entry.

As a certain blogger recently noted — the £11.95 entry price of now includes unlimited repeat visits for a year, so if the Orbit lays on a series of exhibitions, it makes repeat visits more appealing.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
