Travel souvenirs you can build yourself

Hello! Bonjour! Kon'nichiwa!

It’s time to grab your passport as we’re about to jet around the world with six great LEGO® sets that take inspiration from a diverse range of countries and cultures.

Sets that remind you of somewhere that you’ve already been, or perhaps inspire your next big trip. What they will do is provide fun, relaxing builds and wonderful display models when built.

So, buckle up your seatbelt and stow your tray table, as we take off on our roundup of the best LEGO® set travel souvenirs.

LEGO® Architecture Himeji Castle (21060)

Japanese traditional architecture is unmistakable, and there is almost no better example of it than Himeji Castle. With the LEGO® Architecture Himeji Castle set you can recreate the castle’s turrets, walkways, and asymmetric walls, plus a liftable lid will reveal a simplified interpretation of the interior layout.

You can also build some of the castle’s massive grounds, including three cherry trees, with green foliage and pink blossoms, to show the gardens in full springtime bloom.

If you’re looking for a gift for someone who loves Japanese culture or want a home decoration that pays homage to the land of the rising sun, then this 2,125-piece set is for you.

LEGO® Architecture Notre-Dame de Paris (21061)

On a small island in the heart of Paris stands one of the world’s most famous buildings. The LEGO® Architecture Notre-Dame de Paris set lets you recreate this majestic cathedral, with features like the bell towers, rose windows and the central spire surrounded by statues. You can even remove the roof to view the interior columns and arches or lift off the towers to see inside.

A perfect gift for Paris lovers, admirers of architecture or history buffs.

LEGO® Japan Postcard (40713)

An ode to two of Japan’s most iconic natural features, the LEGO® Japan Postcard set depicts Mount Fuji surrounded by cherry blossom trees. There’s also a red bridge and a Himeji-inspired castle, which you might recognise from its own full set. It also includes a sticker sheet allowing builders to complete the postcard with a ‘Japan’ plaque in English or Japanese.

Part of our wider postcard series, this is a simple and enjoyable build that will delight kids who are interested in geography, as well as globetrotting adults who have Japan on their travel wish list or have already seen this stunning country for themselves.

LEGO® Ideas Red London Telephone Box (21347)

Most cities in the world had phone boxes, but only London’s iconic red phone boxes became an emblem of the city. To commemorate the 100th anniversary of Britain’s first red phone box, the LEGO® Ideas Red London Telephone Box set lovingly recreates the unmistakable BT telephone box.

It stands on a cobbled street, with a lamp post, hanging flower baskets, a flowerpot, and a fence with a London street sign. A light brick illuminates an interior filled with vintage London Transport posters, and you can choose between a vintage rotary or 1980s-style phone.

LEGO® Ideas The Orient Express Train (21344)

All aboard the LEGO® Ideas The Orient Express Train, a set that lovingly reimagines the iconic train that once ran from Paris to Istanbul and became forever linked with luxury and glamour.

The Orient Express has stoked imaginations for over 140 years, and this LEGO® Ideas set lets you build an authentic and detailed interior, including locomotive, dining car, and sleeping car. It also comes with eight Minifigures and endless play or display possibilities and is compatible with the LEGO® track system. Next stop… fun!

LEGO® Architecture Great Pyramid of Giza (21058)

It’s remarkable to think that about 4,000 years ago someone came up with the idea of building the pyramids, even more remarkable is the fact that their creation is still standing.

With the LEGO® Architecture Great Pyramid of Giza set you can now build your own model of this wonder of the ancient world. The cross-sectional build reveals its main tunnels and chambers and the system that may have been used to move huge stones during its construction.

You will also build the surroundings, including the River Nile, small pyramids, mortuary temples, Sphinx statues, an obelisk and more, this set is perfect for history lovers, or anyone obsessed with Egyptology.
