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

Spent about half hour in the model village. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Had to pay £2.50 to park the car up but we was on the way to the zoo anyway so we left the car there and walked around the corner to the zoo. The quiz was fun to do and for the children they had... More

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.
