Exciting news for those in London, or planning a trip to London – as a brand new LEGO Store located in the very swanky and newly renovated Battersea Power Station opens today, Thursday, 25 May 2023!
It’s the first LEGO store south of the river Thames in London and features the most up-to-date LEGO Store design, complete with a Pick and Build wall, Build a Minifigure Station, and plenty of other fun attractions.
The Battersea Power Station LEGO Store is located at Ground Floor, Turbine Hall A, The Power Station. It’s right next to Uniqlo!
I was invited to attend the Media Preview event yesterday… but London is a fair bit of a commute from Australia, so instead, I got to send a friend of mine, Just15Bricks to go check out the Battersea Power Station LEGO Store and take some phohos!
LEGO Mini Battersea Powerstation Make and Take Event
To celebrate the opening of the store, there’ll be a free build event over the weekend, where you can build your very own mini version of the Battersea Power Station!
- Saturday 27th May – 10:00 – 12:00
- Sunday 28th May – 12:00 – 14:00
If you can’t get there, but still want to build your very own mini Battersea Power Station, here are the instructions!
One of the chief attractions at the store is this incredibly detailed LEGO Model of the Battersea Power Station, made out of 14,500 bricks. It was built and designed by Gary Davis.
There’s also this mosaic displayed in-store, which riffs on Pink Floyd’s Animals album cover, which depicts a pig flying over the Battersea Power Station.
Here are some other photos of the store.
Oh, and until stocks last, there’ll also be a commemorative Battersea LEGO Store tile available. These exclusive store tiles are usually handed out at certain LEGO Stores, especially when they’re newly opened and makes for a cool and very exclusive souvenir if you happen to be in the area!
Special thanks to The LEGO Group for the invite to this event – I hope to check it out in person if I make it over to the UK!

Loved seeing store layout. The minifigure section is just what my local lego store needs. Everything is so jumbled together you can’t find what you want to build. Hopefully, they will update the store to include this new feature.
Keep coming up with new ideas.

Great review will be making a trip there myself as I live not far away from there. Going to legoland Windsor June 22nd looking forward to that especially as it’s only just reopened, like I said great review hope to see more information soon.

So, where are the instructions for the Power Station?
In Polish Lublin they would do it… there is a large place for rent in Lublin.
