We visited in October and although we enjoyed ourselves the £19 + entry fee for 2 adults and 1 child was a bit pricey for the one hour experience. Our daughter enjoyed the quiz but we felt some of the models could do with a lick of paint.

Well after setting off for Blackpool zoo, on the last day of August 2014, only to find a very full car park, we set off back for the sea front. Just as we turned out of the zoo, i saw the sign. Blackpool model village, and thought well why not, and so glad we did. A nice large car park,... More

After checking the website decided to pay a visit as we are fairly local. First disappointment was that the website didn't say it cost £2.50 to park in an unmade area which was difficult to push a wheelchair over, whilst the attraction was fairly disabled friendly in that you can walk around the paths there are no disabled toilets and...

We spent about an hour wandering the model village, filling in the quiz questions. My other and I were keen to have as relaxing an afternoon as possible and the time spent in the model village along with a walk around the park was enjoyable. The gentleman who worked at reception (Michael) was pleasant and informative.

I enjoyed my walk around the village. I think it covered most aspects of village life plus a lot more (how many villages have a prison). The models were well crafted, and the gardens well looked after.

Although some of the figures could do with a paint and update. We had a really enjoyable time. We were given the quiz which was good fun. We took our 1yr old and she also enjoyed pointing at all the figures :) it was about £15 for the two of us.
