Went here on a rainy weekend in November and were literally the only people here! Quite hilly, but well worth the few hours. Attention to detail and some good humour throughout the village. Recommend the short 4d film, only 12 mins long but for £1.50...More

Many things to see. The model railway is interesting, and the firemen. Some moving exhits - good at Christmas for children.

I have been going to this model village since I was a child, it is still great fun. I thought going back as an adult would be a bit odd, but it was amazing. This place will make all the family smile and there’s always...More

A friend and I visited here in early November. We both qualify for concessionary rates, but still enjoyed this model village as if we were young children, delighting in the detail in the buildings and the beauty of this attraction.

Thank you for visiting and I am sorry to hear about your disappointment. I am a little confused as to how you could have been here only 30 minutes. Though we did have some Halloween displays during the daytime, the 'spooky atmosphere' was promoted for...More

A little gem. With lots of interesting models and themes to look at. It's our favourite place to visit daytime and at nightfall. Amazing Halloween themed events.. We would recommend the model village to others. Simply the best.

We came here about 5 years ago but came back expecting to see the same things. A lot had been improved so our kids enjoyed themselves thoroughly and so did we. Even the 4D movie was worth seeing

Yes definitely and also have time to eat in the model village restaurant. You can also get your entrance tickets validated to return in the evening to see the village in lights. It’s really good
