We visited this on a Saturday morning and spent a good hour plus answering the quiz. The leaflet guides you round the village with questions along the way. Our 5 and 2 yr olds loved it.

There are some outstanding model villages in England, notably Babbacombe, 5*, Great Yarmouth, 4* and Godshill (Isle of Wight), 4*, Polperro, 3*. Blackpool just isn't in the same league! We visited on a lovely day towards the end of a lovely sunny week at the end of April. The modest lake feature was dirty and water level was about half... More

Enjoyed a nice morning out. Interesting buildings with different periods and characters. Lovely water features. Nice to see the train and tram, the quiz was well laid out and helped to guide us around the place. Reasonably priced and different flavours of Ice cream. Staff are helpful and friendly, toilets very clean. A pity no nighttime illuminations but would definitely... More

Must admit my expectations were low but this turned out to be a really lovely day out with our three young children (6, 2 & 1 yrs). There is so much to see and surprises around every corner. Our two older ones loved trotting around the many curving paths discovering the little houses or not-so-little castle. The paths were fine... More

Enjoyed my visit with a visiting friend but I don't feel I could recommend it for others. Especially families with children. It only takes about 30 minutes to slowly wander around and a lot of the models are desperately in need of a touch up. Also, payment to the attraction does not cover the car park which is owned by...

We were very impressed with this Model Village. It is one of the biggest we have been to and we really enjoyed doing the quiz. The quiz also acts as a guide around the village so it is worth doing and also that way you do not miss any of the models. Small shop on site and very friendly staff... More

Had a great time in these beautiful gardens. Lovely, interesting models of houses, shops and a million thoughtful details... look out for the market place (there's a poor soul in the stocks, he's been there so long he's turned into a skeleton!) It's not the biggest place, but we managed to comfortably occupy about two hours here. It made a... More
