As a lover of model villages and a keen model railway fan I visted this attraction with great expectations. What a let down! The whole place feels like a joke out of an 80's comedy show. The model buildings were in poor condition, there was no attempt to maintain scale accuracy (figures to big for their cars, animals out of... More

I had heard only good things about here, so I was looking forward to finally seeing it. Well, I was extremely disappointed when I got here, it was the middle of summer and there was no one else there, we were giving a quiz sheet to "help" us round, which made me feel a bit like a child on a...

What a cute little attraction. A great little quiz to keep everyone interacting with the models and help you find your way round so you don't miss anything. A great view of perhaps a simpler time in Blackpool.

Visited the model village with 7 year old daughter and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. OK it doesn't take hours to go around. We were there an hour and a half after following the instructions quiz we replicated it. Saw more on the 2nd time round. Very well kept surroundings, gardens and village items itself. Guy gave us free parking... More

We visited the Model Village October 2015 as a mixed family group of young children, aged 3 and 9, a retired, a disabled in a mobility scooter and other adults. We all enjoyed the model village and timed it well as the attraction was quiet meaning we had plenty of time to enjoy the exhibits without holding anyone up. The... More

To be honest, I've not been to many model villages since I was a kid but I do remember them as being better than this one, with buildings being better & more intricately constructed & to better scale in most cases. We only visited because the site's attached to Stanley Park but we weren't overally impressed. If it wasn't for... More

We bought our tickets from a very friendly and helpful lady who offered us a quiz to complete as we walked around the model village by following the directions we were assured we wouldn't miss anything. The quiz was fun to do and the model village was well laid out with a lot of thought put into the planning of... More

In a lovely setting with trees and flowers and streams intermingled with the houses etc . Also a small model train and a model van which ran on tracks Area with picnic tables... More
