We were here at Easter this year 2017, haven't been in here for ages, it's so magical, the model village of Polperro is very well made although showing signs of age now. However still thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Spent £3 each getting in here after spending £10 to get in an attraction in Bodmin the day before and this knocked spots of it... Nice little model village,,, most of them seem to be disappearing,,, and the legends animation was great... Well worth the admission...

Used to come on family holidays to Polperro every year as a child and a visit to the Model Village and Land of Legend was always tradition, perhaps more than once per holiday!
Was so nice to be able to take my own daughter there. She loved it! I know it's a small attraction and it perhaps could do with a little more TLC but for me, seeing it unchanged from when I was a child was part of the appeal.
The prices are fab, £3 per adult and £2 for children, although as the man on the desk gave my daughter a 50p for the train ride at the back of the model village I suspect it was even cheaper than we thought!
There is a really interesting video and photograph display at the back about the flooding in Polperro over the years which we found really interesting.
The Myths & Legend show at the end was a little scary for my daughter (I blame the UV lights) but she still loved it!
The man running it was really friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble!
Would always go back when in Polperro.

A lovely little amusement, cheap to get in and a real trip back to the old days of simple enjoyment. No high tech computer wizardry just lovely little houses, singing in the church. Joy for little ones and memories of our childhood for us older ones. There is even a 'show' on leaving which gives the history of Cornwall. Old fashioned maybe but old school fun and simple enjoyment. Give it a try.

Not the biggest or most detailed of model villages but a good reproduction of the layout of Polperro. The "model village" within this model village was a nice touch. Not quite sure how the "Land of Legend" presentation fitted in, but was interesting nonetheless. The model railway would have benefited from some back lighting to make it easier to see the display. Overall, I thought this was good value for money at £3 per adult.
