A great family day out - we was very lucky as they were doing a special offer for £2 admission so it was a real bargain and we had a really good look at all the lovely little model villages and themes.

A lot of work has been put in to make this a really good attraction, used to go there when i was a child, very impressive. The restaurant/snack bar is worth a look too.

Enjoyable afternoon in lovely weather with Grandchildren. Who after 45 minutes had enough so visit made to the tea rooms for cake and beverages which was nice then to their arcades. Then to arcade where they enjoyed themselves the only down side would be the models were very dated and really need updating
