A lovely presentation of everything English in miniature - from the maypole to the slate mine - and our grandchildren were fascinated by the sights and sounds. I particularly liked the humour which presented itself in imaginative names of ficticious businesses.

This is a great little place. Loads of different things to see great little set ups with sounds and music. There is also a free little crazy golf section. Penny arcades and a lovely little cafe.

The children were fascinated and really enjoyed their visit. I especially liked the slate quarry and the little bits of humour -like business the business names.

This was a fantastic day out with a young boy, who loved chasing the many trains around the park, and taking a walk around the different model villages. It’s affordable (not cheap) but did allow to come and go as you please between open and...More

This was ok. Some of the models are looking a little tired now. We paid 4.99 per person as they were doing a special deal at half term. Free crazy golf included in that price so not bad VFM. It killed an hour with the...More

The model village is rather old fashioned but quaint. For children it could be wonderful. Cafe and ice cream nearby. Friendly atmosphere. Not crowded when I visited in October
