The Best LEGO Castles Ever

Which castle has a stronghold on the top spot?

LEGO. The little plastic bricks that let you build the walls of whatever building your imagination can come up with.

But while Ed Sheeran settled for bulding a LEGO house, you can go all-out and build your very own castle. LEGO Castles have been around for quite some time - the first LEGO castle was introduced in 1978 and consisted of mostly yellow bricks.

Let's take a look at eight of the very best LEGO castle sets ever made. We've got drawbridges, steeples and Mickey Mouse(?!) in our top 8 countdown.

The LEGO System Royal Knight's Castle is a fan favourite - and rightly so with gated entrance and royal blue tiled roof.

5. LEGO Creator Medieval Castle

  • set: 31120
  • pieces: 1,426
  • minifigures: 3
  • Availability: Out now

The most recent castle on our list is the new LEGO Creator 3-in-1 castle.

With this set you can build from a choice of 3 castles: a defensive castle with towers and drawbridge; a giant tower with working catapult or a medieval castle village - or buy three and combine the sets to create one mega castle! Sadly, the set is a little lacking in minifigures with just 3 characters to defend your castle from an imminent seige, which keeps it from scaling to the top of our list of best LEGO castles.

The LEGO Medieval Castle launches August 2021.
