Spent a lovely couple of hours with the children doing the Easter bunny hunt (where they win a nice bag of chocolates) and general trail. The models are well looked after and the gardens well tended. The staff are very pleasant and the ice cream went down well. Not as big as the model village In Babbacombe but is far... More

Enjoyed a brief trip here but quite small (not meant to be a pun) - does not take long to walk round and felt could be more effort adding to models. Having been to the model village in Torquay this is pale in comparison as in Babbacombe model village they put tvs and figures in the houses. I liked the... More

Visited this attraction today with some free kids tickets we got from the zoo. Even so we still paid £26 for two adults, two students and two kids so not a cheap afternoon out. On a positive note the attraction was clean with lots of benches and picnic tables and two friendly cats. The gardens themselves are very well kept... More

Based on previous reviews, we were very pleasantly surprised by our time at the Model Village. This may have been helped by being such a beautiful autumn day, but the colours and landscaping in the gardens were lovely. The models and gardens were very well maintained and the staff chatty and friendly. With respect to the admission price, I urge... More

I had been a few years ago and enjoyed the return visit. I think you need the quiz so you look out for things more, so I would recommend doing that even if you don't have kids with you. I love the exhibits. I agree that it is a bit overpriced at twenty quid for three of us. Parking though... More

While visiting Blackpool on our yearly visit we decided to give the model village a try. We arrived prepared to pay adult prices for myself and two teenagers (17 & 18) but was pleasantly surprised when the man on the till asked if they were students, which they are, and charged us student rates instead. The gardens are lovely and... More

Very shabby, basic model village. Took 20mins to complete. Not worth the £6.75 paid to get in and £2.50 car park.

Most of the comments on the negative reviews are true, it is tired and some of the updates aren't very realistic, it's also a bit less of a village and a bit more of a selection of models. But it's not that bad, the questionnaire is great and if you have kids old enough to engage with that or younger... More
