Yo! Take a look around, get stuck in, and hopefully you'll leave feeling a little bit more empowered to ditch the trends and instead focus on doing you!

THINGS TO DO IN LONDON: THE ART OF THE BRICK LEGO EXHIBITION

THINGS TO DO IN LONDON: THE ART OF THE BRICK LEGO EXHIBITION

A few weeks back Jason, Marley and I headed up to London's Southbank. We're always looking for family stuff to do that doesn't suck, or isn't yet another play area (yawn).

We were initially going to visit Moominland which looks awesome but sadly after being diverted for lunch (my hanger will wait for no man) we left it too late to get a ticket and it was sold out. But with a bit of wondering we stumbled across signs for 'The Art Of The Brick' which ended up being a happy accident. 

I took my family to visit the Art Of The Brick lego exhibition of DC comic characters on London's Southbank.

Created by lego artist Nathan Sawaya, The Art Of The Brick: DC superheroes uses nearly 2 million bricks to bring to life some of the best heroes and villains from your favourite DC comics.

The level of skill that goes into each piece is crazy. The artist has also given descriptions of how pieces were made and put together which sort of helped you avoid just going 'oh that's cool' and really think 'wow, that's how he did that?'

It's a fun exhibition that's great for families. It takes about 30 minutes or so to walk around and then there is a little lego cafe at the end with huge containers of lego where the kids can sit around and build stuff. I mean - why no-one has thought of doing this as a kids cafe in London is beyond me... 

This really is a great exhibition for all ages. My daughter is 4 and she loved it, as did both me and hubby!

You can then take a short stroll back to Southbank for food at the market and a bit of chilling out by the eye like we did. They have a good play area bit there that will keep the kids entertained for a bit!

Tickets are £16.50 for adults and £11 for children. I think they do cheaper tickets on weekdays too so have a look here! It's well worth seeing it in person - there is loads more, I just shared a few pics so as not to spoil it!
