We also have a range of Star Wars books in the toy department, including one to help you build 100 of the best scenes from the first six films – in Lego naturally.

Of course it’s not all about Star Wars, as we have a huge Lego range in stock to suit boys and girls (and adults!) with whatever building and design they enjoy.  Whether you like Batman, dragons, cars, beach houses or Scooby-Doo, or just enjoy a box of Lego Classic bricks to let your imagination run wild, there is something for everyone.

Of course you don’t even have to be a ‘master builder’ to enjoy Lego.  Young children can start their creativity journey using the larger bricks from the Lego DUPLO range.
