Marwell Zoo and the Great (Lego) Brick Safari

Somehow a whole month has got away from me! We visited Marwell just after we got back from holiday at the beginning of August and I have so busy I forgot to share our fantastic day!
What is better than showing the children the wonders of the natural world? The real thing plus Lego versions!

We didn’t tell the kids where we were going, just said we were going out for a picnic. That pesky Matthew and his ability to read meant he figured out the destination but he managed to keep quiet!
Visitors are met by their first Lego build just inside the entrance. This lion is truly magnificent, brilliantly designed and very lifelike. It is actually my favourite of all the 27 Lego builds dotted around the zoo.
I love big cats and was delighted to see the cheetahs out and about in their enclosure.
Anya and Matthew measured up outside the giraffe house, a little bit of growing still to do! It was feeding time so we got to see the giraffes up close as they had their breakfast then a brave ‘little one’ headed outside to explore.
The elephant Lego creation is massive and very impressive. Zach missed it! zzzzz…
More big cats! The tiger was having a lay down in an awkward position but I managed to capture this beautiful jaguar on camera.
One day I would love to go on safari and see the animals in their natural habitat. Until then I will have to make do with zoos and Lego!
During a particularly rainy point in the day we headed to the giant marquee to play with Lego! There was a huge pit filled with lght and dark grey bricks so the kids got stuck in!
The kids then had the opportunity to design their own minifigure: this took a LOOOOOONG time There is an additional chrge for this but it is comparable to the normal price of a minifigure blind bag and the fun was priceless.

Finally we headed home but not before a couple more pics with the Lego lion, this time acting up for the camera! Terrifying…
The Brick Safari at Marwell only lasts another 2 weeks so head over soon and don’t miss out on these wonderful creations!
