We went there with my little one,the loved specially competition.Price is bit high,mice place for kids to spend time and have picnic.Would be good if you drop price bit,so you can be busy all the time.

A nice little place to visit on the sea front although it was a lot smaller in space than I thought - very hilly and not very wheelchair / pushchair friendly when its busy

They need some real investment in making the models more attractive. Very boxy with no real creativity and cars scattered everywhere. Fake grass and the model people set up in unrealistic situations... I.e not much thought! Cricket pitch terrible players in wrong positions and scoreboard...More

We went in to the model village while we was on holiday in Great Yarmouth. Lovely place kids really enjoyed it and good prices to. Worth going in if walking along the brilliant sea front.

I remember my parents taking me here when I was younger. It is a nice gentle attraction with lots to look at. My son loved it although there wasnt quite as many trains running as last time.
