Amazing place to go! Loved that there was little characters to find such as the doctor and the yard is, hulk, batman, Thor etc! The effort to keep it looking so beautiful did not go unnoticed with us! Just amazing!

Hi SuperMum40, It is unfortunate that you didn't realise what kind of a display we have, they have been built for the visual effects not to be played with, and our floral display is not only beautiful but acts as a soft barrier which most...More

We spent several lovely hours wandering around these gorgeous miniatures. The old English village scenes were my favourite. Congratulations to the people who maintain the grounds, the maze (in miniature) and the displays. They are impeccable. We arrived at about 10:30 and it was already...More
