Set details

Size and construction

Let's start with the size and construction of this set. It's just under 31 inches tall and features a construction method we've never seen before in a LEGO® set. The idea of making the Gringotts Bank a separate building level allows you to combine it with your Diagon Alley set or display it separately as you see fit. This flexibility makes the set especially appealing and unique.
