Santa's Lap: A Giant Model Of Tower Bridge Made From LEGO

Every day until Christmas we will be pointing you in the direction of a London Christmas gift that (with a bit of luck) you won’t already have on your list. Climb up onto our collective lap and we’ll see what we can move from our sack to your stockings…

Ever wanted to limbo dance under Tower Bridge, or recreate those 'Back the Bid' hurdling posters from 2005, or just kick apart one of the world's great buildings like some petulant mammalian Godzilla? Of course you haven't. That's just our lazy way of introducing this alluring LEGO model of the famous Victorian landmark. The brickish bridge stands over a metre long and almost half a metre tall, and includes various vehicles redolent of London.

Impressive feats of engineering don't come cheap, and the plastic pont will set you back around £210, via LEGO's website or from John Lewis.

Our other Londony Christmas suggestions are compiled here.
