had a fantastic time here after the kids got bored with the zoo. They enjoyed doing the quiz on the way around and the gnome hunt! Had a lovely ice-cream while we were there, such a lovely way to spend a couple of hours on a sunny afternoon

Visited for the first time in decade's. Was disappointed with the setting's and the little figure's. You could do better with a lego set. Not much interaction or moving set's. £7 TO GET IN!!! Don't waste your money.

We read about this attraction while staying at the Queens Promenade Hotel and quite fancied taking a look at it, easy to find and ample parking, friendly, helpful reception/shop staff and reasonably priced entry. The "village" is quite dated but we think this enhances the feel of it and is a bonus rather than viewing modern machine made displays, the... More

Went with my friend to have a look at something a bit different. The models were a bit bigger than I expected but they were still quite well done. Aimed at young families but both of us in our early 20s had great fun answering the questions and wandering around. They also do great ice cream.

Was very let down by this was very messy and a lot of the features weren't working and the staff looked bored and uninterested (a bit like us) was just over £30 for 2 adults and 3 children wouldn't visit again in a hurry save money go to other attractions in Blackpool

this place is just lovely and I'm so glad there are still places like this around, we spent a morning here looking at all the little details and there was a gnome hunt which added to the fun, the gardens are very well maintained and the sun was out so we sat in the gardens for a while, very enjoyable...

A grand attraction for all ages from the young to the not so young, the models in the village are great and the guide you are given is informative and a bit of fun as it is the form of a quiz, if you have young children they will enjoy the gnome hunt as it gives them a reason to... More

For an opportunity to have a little peace and quiet and an alternative to the Front I would recommend a visit to the Model Village and Gardens. Okay the railway layouts aren't as good as other model villages but the models have been built with love and care and have a cheeky sense of humour. Look at some of the... More
