Good news for Harry Potter fans: Lego has just launched a brand new Harry Potter Diagon Alley themed lego set.

Definitely not just one for the kids, it’s the longest Lego set ever released with more than 5000 pieces - and so it’s not cheap.

Here’s everything you need to know - including what’s included and how much it costs.

What’s included in the set?

The Diagon Alley Lego set includes the pieces needed for Harry Potter fans to build their very own Diagon Alley.

No batteries are required - once you’ve got the set, you can get started building it straight away.

It includes pieces needed to build buildings from the Harry Potter universe like:

  • Ollivanders Wand Shop
  • Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes
  • Flourish & Blotts bookseller
  • Entrance to the Daily Prophet
  • Quality Quidditch Supplies
  • Scribbulus Writing Implements
  • Florean Fortescue’s Ice Cream Parlour

The set includes fan favourite characters - such as Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Fred and George Weasley, Ginny Weasley and Draco Malfoy - and also includes four new characters you won’t find in any other Harry Potter Lego sets: Gilderoy Lockhart, Lucius Malfory, Florean Fortescue and the Daily Prophet photographer.

The entire set boasts 5,544 pieces in total.

Up for grabs as well is the Hagrid and Buckbeak ‘brickheadz’ which is free with any Harry Potter purchases over £100.

How much does it cost?

The entire set, plus the exclusive Hagrid and Buckbead figures, costs a total of £369.99.

If you’re part of the Lego VIP programme, the purchase of the set would earn you 2,960 points.

The VIP programme is free to sign up to and you can unlock members only discounts, early access to sets and monthly promotions.

Where can I buy it?

You can get your hands on the Lego set via the Lego website - sets are limited, so customers can only buy two at a time.

Lego explains that this is to “ensure fairness” for all the fans.

You can also check the stock of your nearest Lego store on the Lego website.

Standard delivery, which takes two to four business days to arrive, is free, or if you’re really desperate for it, you can opt for express delivery which will take between one and two business days to arrive. Express delivery will cost £21.
