The actual building began on Tuesday July 3, and was finished and measured this morning.

Hundreds of volunteers used more than half a million lego bricks to complete the tower, made entirely of 160 x 20 cm lego bricks, which were gradually hoisted into place to form the tower.

The new tower beats the record set in Seoul, South Korea in May. To beat the record Legoland Windsor had to create a structure more than 31.9 metres high.

Legoland Windsor announced on their facebook page that the new tower was taller than any other in the world:

You did it! Thank you to the thousands of people who helped us break the world record for the tallest LEGO tower, and here is the proof - 32m and 16cm
