Reading Dino Trail

Roarsome family fun this August

5 -20 August

This summer, visitors to Reading town centre will have the chance to get up close and personal with dinosaur models built from hundreds of thousands of toy bricks.  The Reading Dino Trail will take place across the town centre, including The Oracle and Broad Street Mall, with 15 dinosaurs on display between 5 – 20 August.

Brought to Reading by Reading BID (Reading’s Business Improvement District) and BRICKLIVE, the trail promises to be a fun and free day out in Reading. The brick dinosaurs will be located inside participating shops, stores and Broad Street Mall and the Oracle Shopping Centre around Reading town centre.

Among the dinosaurs immortalised in toy bricks will be a nearly 3 metre-long Tethyshadros made of 89,000 bricks; Velociraptors measuring 3.6m long and 2.2m high; a Pteradon with a wing span of almost 3 metres; as well as Diplocaulus (126cm long), Archaeoceratops (117cm long) and a Megalosaur head for selfies.

The models are created by BRICKLIVE and the event is organised by Reading BID. This event is not associated with the LEGO Group.

More information on the precise locations of each dinosaur will be available at from July.
