Lego may have been around for a long time, but it still remains one of the most popular hobbies for kids and adults alike. There is a catch, though: those colourful plastic bricks and minifigures do not come cheap, so it's important to buy from the right place, at the right time, at the right price.

Argos is leading the way when it comes to major price slashes - though stock will depend on your location. If you're not sure whether you're getting a good deal, Lego.com is great for checking official RRPs when you're sceptical about another site's offer, and occasionally has good deals of its own.

But you don't have to trawl through loads of sites yourself, because we've done the hard work for you. In this article we bring you the best Lego deals we've found across the web in the UK.
