this is such a sweet place to take family/children but I even go on my own at Christmas as it's SO Chrismassy and pretty with the snow and extra things going on. Love it.

You can spend 2 to 3 hours with packed activities. Especially kids aged 3 to 12 will love it. My kids(10 and 13) enjoyed a lot finding hidden Alphabets and heroes using fun sheet they picked up at the entrance. There were not many people...More

Still well done and with plenty of updates. Lovely staff - we enjoyed it despite pouring rain. There are so many houses and buildings to see that you could spend hours here.

A great little place. When we were younger we used to sit on the hill outside to watch the laser show in the evenings.

The models are very good and some of the names will cause some amusement. The area has grown over the years and is well worth a visit with young children. There is a nice cafe on site.

Keeping up to date with current affairs this miniature world has old and new buildings made with varying techniques. An escape for viewers young and old. Well worth a visit with free returns within 7 days

Loved our visit here, well worth the money! I did not anticipate the scale of the village here (no pun intended but the garden is HUGE). There was lots of surprises along the way. They are currently doing some work here to change some areas...More

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

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
