Lego may be almost 70 years old but its popularity continues to grow. The colourful plastic bricks and minifigures are loved by kids and adults alike, with sets ranging from Harry Potter and Disney to James Bond and World Buildings.

There is a catch, though: Lego does not come cheap. With that in mind, in this article we bring you the best Lego deals we've found across the web in the UK.

We've focused on the standard and Technics sets, but if you've got toddlers there are some decent deals out there on Duplo too - such as the Farm Adventures set from Very or Amazon. You may also want to check out our round-up of our favourite Lego sets.

It's worth noting that many Lego sets are only produced for a limited time so they tend to hold on to their value, especially if you keep them in excellent condition and don't throw away the box or instructions. Better yet, keep them and don't open them at all and you might find that in a few years' time you make a healthy profit, but of course that's nowhere near as fun.
