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...

Had a lovely afternoon here with my wife. Enjoyed the quiz and walking around seeing all the model's. Was here for about 2hrs, we didn't rush just took are time and I most the most of the time to play with my camera. So when you take it into context with how much other entertainment cost in Blackpool we found... More

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.

I enjoyed my walk around the village. I think it covered most aspects of village life plus a lot more (how many villages have a prison). The models were well crafted, and the gardens well looked after.

Although some of the figures could do with a paint and update. We had a really enjoyable time. We were given the quiz which was good fun. We took our 1yr old and she also enjoyed pointing at all the figures :) it was about £15 for the two of us.

This was a nice place to spend an hour or so but wasn't very big and therefore not worth the money I paid for it. The quiz for the kids made it a little more interesting and extended the time spend going round it.

A surprisingly entertaining day out.. The trail was particularly good, encouraging the children (and us!) to look more closely at the intricate models. Worth a visit!

Remember coming as a child and wanted to see what it was like. Was quite expensive to get in, about £7 for one adult. At first there didn't seem much in it but I decided to do the trail that I had been given when I entered. This was a very good idea as it took me around all the... More
