My wife and I ended up in here as she needed the loo and it seemed to be the only way of accessing one in a hurry. I'm afraid on the day we were there the latrines reeked like an Moroccan tannery - a bottle of bleach would not have gone amiss. That aside we determined to walk around and... More

The models are reasonable and my children enjoyed doing the eye-spy quiz. The journey to the attraction would not be worth a journey on its own but it is next to Stanley Park and is also close the Blackpool Zoo.

Visited here with a reluctant 16 year old daughter who thought it was a ll rather beneath her! Within minutes of entering she was fully engaged and enjoying filling in the quiz sheet and even looking for the gnomes. Yes it's not on the scale of the model village at Babacoombe but it is a charming little place and although... More

My family and I only found this place due to our B&B having a leaflet there and we are so glad we found it. A really lovely family afternoon (our children are 3, 6 & 9)and we all loved the 'spot the gnomes' and the quiz all the way around. A really lovely model village and highly recommend a visit.

Came across it by accident, within walking distance from our hotel which was a bonus. Village was well laid out, spacious and in a relaxing setting. The two activities: find the gnomes and the village quiz were excellent additions and kept us occupied.

We weren't expecting much, we thought it was a nice place to end our day at the zoo. We loved this, and the kids especially enjoyed trying to find the gnomes. It was a lovely day and the place itself was a fun and entertaining place to end the day. I would recommend this for anyone who has kids. They... More

I have visited the model village with my two sons (aged 10 and 9) several times over the years. They both still love it here and enjoy all the trails. It is well kept and the staff are always very pleasant. Would recommend combining a trip here with some time in the excellent Stanley park and / or Blackpool zoo.
