Let’s face it, the £410 Hogwarts Castle is the envy of any Lego Harry Potter fan. But with that eye-watering price tag it’s not attainable for lots of people. Not to mention just how big it is: we don’t all have enough space to have it on display. If either of those is the case for you, there’s a new set coming out in September that might pique your interest. It’s a fully-fledged Hogwarts Castle, but it’s built on an even smaller scale than the existing one – and it costs around a third of the price. Sign us right up.
Introducing Lego Harry Potter 76419 Hogwarts Castle and Grounds
Lego Hogwarts Castle and Grounds is made up of 2,660 pieces – less than a third of the pieces you’ll find in the larger Hogwarts Castle. But somehow, it packs in just as much detail. The full castle is here to admire in all its glory: you’ll find the main tower, the astronomy tower, the great hall, the boathouse and more. There’s even the Chamber of Secrets and a number of classrooms to be seen, along with the iconic bridges and pathways that snake around the castle.
It has some nifty details all of its own, too: there’s a Durmstrang Ship sailing just off the coast, a flying Beaubatons Carriage and Ron’s iconic Ford Anglia stuck in the branches of the Whomping Willow. It really does capture the full magic of Hogwarts Castle.
Its footprint is smaller than its bigger sibling, but still rather large: built on a tidy square, Lego Architecture style, it measures 35cm x 25cm. That means it’ll neatly fit on most shelves.
The best news is its price tag. Lego Hogwarts Castle and Grounds will retail for £149.99 when it launches on 1st September.
