This attraction is great the kids love it and there's plenty of things to look at. Good value as you can return the same day for free. There's also a old penny arcade at the end where you can exchange your money for old pennies. There's also many rides outside for children all only 20p which is great. The tea... More

My son who is 3 loves the model village. He can't get enough of the trains, interactive buttons, fish and detailed models all kept in beautiful maintained gardens and ponds. Must see with young children or older generations.

The suspension of reality is the simple reason i enjoyed this attraction when i was younger as i believed that the little people were just waiting for me to go so they could magically come alive and go about their business. This ive since found out is impossible and therefore i dont like it so much. The village on an... More

I have been coming here for years and it just keeps getting better. The gardens that surround the whole village are always wonderful no matter what time of the year you go. Round every corner of the village you find another view that you may not have noticed the first time. The village is full of action for everyone of... More

This attraction has been here for years and I think is superb for all ages, as the models in their various groups have been meticulously laid out with a lot of thought, and you can not fail to be mesmerised by the working models as well.
