This was a nice place to spend an hour or so but wasn't very big and therefore not worth the money I paid for it. The quiz for the kids made it a little more interesting and extended the time spend going round it.

A surprisingly entertaining day out.. The trail was particularly good, encouraging the children (and us!) to look more closely at the intricate models. Worth a visit!

Remember coming as a child and wanted to see what it was like. Was quite expensive to get in, about £7 for one adult. At first there didn't seem much in it but I decided to do the trail that I had been given when I entered. This was a very good idea as it took me around all the... More

Went to the Model Village a long time ago so have forgotten what it was like but I remember enjoying myself looking at the mini buildings and people. They had a quiz where I had to look around and write down things like what the red building is, how many people in the church etc. This made it more fun

Rang before my visit to see if was wheelchair accessible to which I was offered a motorised scooter for my stepfather to go around in, I arranged this for the next day. The staff were friendly and nothing was too much to ask. I found the price to be fair as me and my stepfather spent a few hours here,... More

My family love things like model villages. Something to get away from noise of the rest of Blackpool. There's a fun quiz to do as you go round and some lovely ice creams at the end. A nice bit of retro kitsch. :-)

Not for us. We went as a part of the resort ticket. Its really not worth it. Almost felt like a joke. The paths actually very uneven unsafe. I am sure a lot of work has gone into building and presenting the models. I just don't know why.

Me and my husband visited the model village recently. The downside is the price. The walk around will only take between 30 minutes. . Max 1 hour. I took some lovely photos and a lot of time and effort has gone into the houses etc but the price may put people off when going as a family considering it will... More

This was a nice little attraction. Managed to walk round quite quickly so thought was a bit pricey at £15 for 1 adult and 1 child. This included car park ticket for the day. But it was nice to see and had a lovely ice cream at the end
