Legoland Windsor has unveiled new Lego models of the Queen, members of the Royal Family, the Red Arrows stunt flight team and a street party scene celebrating Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee.
After more than 281 hours of assembling 18,000 bricks, the Jubilee exhibit will be on display at Miniland for guests to enjoy from June 3, 2022.
The park’s bricktastic exhibit includes a scene of nine red arrows (similar to Blue Angels in the US) flying over the Mall towards Buckingham Palace, complete with smoke effects; a depiction of the “Tree of Trees” plaza outside Buckingham Palace in honor of the Queen’s 70-year reign; and a street party celebrating the big event.
The Queen will also be seen in Lego form, standing on a miniature balcony at Buckingham Palace with the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with their three children.
A cheering crowd standing below them surrounds the “Tree of Trees”.
In addition to these scenes, visitors can see a second Lego build of The Queen, made from 1,350 bricks in 15 hours. Here, the Queen wears a bright yellow dress and hat as she ‘travels’ to Ascot in a small motorized car which approaches the Union Flag-adorned shopping centre.

In honor of the Jubilee, red, white and blue streamers, tiny flags and gingham picnic tables covered in Lego food adorn the stage.
