Details

Capture the essence of a historical London landmark with the LEGO Architecture 21045 Trafalgar Square set. Named in honor of Lord Horatio Nelson following his 1805 naval victory over Napoleon, the square has since become a popular tourist attraction and preferred location for political and community gatherings. This detailed LEGO interpretation depicts the domed National Gallery complete with columned facade, Nelson?s Column flanked by 4 lions, the square?s famous fountains and 4 sculpture plinths. The sections at the rear of the National Gallery structure can be removed for access to a detailed interior with brick-built statue and paintings. Tree-lined borders, ornate lampposts, 2 London buses, 2 black cabs and a tiled baseplate depicting the square and surrounding roads complete the model. Finished with a decorative nameplate, this LEGO Architecture set delivers a highly satisfying building experience to all with an interest in architecture, travel, history and design, and makes a truly iconic centerpiece for the home or office.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun but short lived I loved making this Lego Trafalgar Square but it was over too quickly. I enjoyed the techniques employed to build the whole structure from the base, to the steps, to the structure of the National Art Gallery. For the price it would have been nice to have had something other than Lego dots pieces to display in the gallery but the fact there is art in there at all is a nice touch. Nelson’s column looked good, the lions were a bit dodgy but suffice. I think I assumed it would take longer and be more of a project. I stopped myself so I could spread the build over two days. It is a very clever set and looks cool when complete, I guess I just need to get more but it’s so expensive!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful piece not to be overshadowed It’s a tough ask for a set to be released on the same day as the largest architecture set of all time and not to be overlooked, from my building experience with it in happy to see familiar architecture techniques and new ones like the wonderful staircase technique, for future customers buying the set the only part of this build you may notice that the piece numbered 6167602 which is a right angled white piece seem to be different sizes to each other. I did find it strange however it didn’t effect the build. In conclusion a beautiful build I’d recommend for anyone’s collection.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An excellent representation of Trafalgar Square The Lego designers have done an excellent job representing Trafalgar Square and the National Gallery at such a small size. I particularly liked the tree build and fountains. I liked the hidden galleries behind the building but thought the printed tiles used for the art where a bit childish in design but full marks for having no dreaded stickers. There are some nice techniques used to create the stairs and only gets a little repetitive trying to line up all the one by one plates. My only real complaint is with one particular part 6167602 (minifigs neck bracket). About a 1/3 of the 24 parts supplied had a different thickness to the rest. The thicker ones had the markings 23-03 and the thinner ones had the markings (c) 2002 Lego. As these had been used to create ledges it does make the building look a bit inconsistent and a little distracting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful set As hard core fans of the Architecture Theme, we really embrace this set. It gives an accurate impression of Trafalger Square. Very nice techniques used to build the stairs and the ramps. Interesting set. Highly appreciated!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Would like more detail just finished my trafalgar square which was a very good build and looks great finished. Trees were a bit tricky to get in place and get the staying there as are a tight fit. The only 'design' fault i find is that i am very dissappointed on the Lions. If you did not know that they are Lions i dont think you would be able to tell which i think is a great shame.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An excellent recreation I used to walk through Trafalgar Square nearly every day as a London tour guide and I was astonished with the detail they've managed to squeeze into this scaled down version. Memories came flooding back as I pictured a miniscule me walking around the square. There are some really neat building techniques, no stickers whatsoever and the final product is very visually pleasing. My only gripe is that the paintings inside the National Gallery appear to be random printed tiles from other sets, including a control panel from the Star Wars line and a bright unicorn. This was a little disappointing as the Gallery is not famed for its stock of modern / pop art and I would have loved to have seen tiny versions of JMW Turner's Fighting Temeraires or Vincent van Gogh's Sunflowers instead. However this is a minor thing and once you've built the model you won't be looking inside the gallery that often anyway. Overall I'm very pleased with the build and it sits proudly on my desk where I can reminisce about the years I spent in London as often as I like.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What’s with the childish pictures? Totally agree with two previous reviewers: - the artwork in the Nation Gallery is ridiculous, as one reviewer said, no Van Gogh/Turner etc but instead a ‘cat with a party hat’ and a unicorn. - the lions, their heads are just circles The artwork is mainly hidden but the lions really annoy me, I used to climb up and sit on them as a child on trips to London. And you say in the instruction manual the sculptor based the lions on a real lion, shame Lego couldn’t do the same. Having said that, really enjoyed building it especially the National Gallery, very clever use of Lego on its side
