If you’re looking to flee the U.S. for any reason, we’d recommend London as the perfect place to “lego” of all your cares.

The world’s largest Lego store opened Thursday in London’s Leicester Square, featuring some of the most impressive builds the legacy toy company has ever produced.

Visitors to the flagship are greeted by a Lego Shakespeare in a life-size Lego Tube carriage that took 637,903 bricks and 3,399 hours to build. The store’s Big Ben replica used more than 200,000 bricks and lights up at night. At more than 9,800 square feet, this store will surely impress even the most expert of home Lego enthusiasts:

Lego’s new London flagship is the crown jewel of its 131 stores worldwide.

If the future is Lego, we’re jolly well pleased.
