If you only have time to visit one attraction in Great Yarmouth make sure it is the model village .A leisurely stroll, pleasure to see and treasure to find if you do the treasure hunt quiz. The model railway set up alone is worth seeing, it's acres of track and lots of rolling stock. I could go on but just... More

I visited this on a £1 day (I live in Yarmouth), I have been atleast once before a few years back. I don't have children yet, but it only took me about 40 minutes to go round, with kids you could probably spend 1-1 1/2 hrs in the village, there is also an old penny arcade at the end, this... More

I visited this in my youth and teens and returned with grand-children. It still keeps children fascinated and adults enraptured. A wonderful way to pass a few hours.

A great day out for all ages. It was raining the day we went and it was still fun! Lots of mini worlds to see, buttons to press to make them move and play music. Included in admission (about £3 I think) is a free game of mini crazy golf as many times as you want as you can go... More

My children love it here. When you are inside, you could be anywhere as it is so peaceful. We love following the paths around. A pushchair goes around easily too. The gardens are well cared for and look really pretty. We normally go if there is an offer on. And the kids love the old fashioned penny machines at the... More

Visited with family as there was a special offer, which was good value but I wouldn't pay full price for very out dated attraction. Needs more attention to the actual details but the gardens are lovely

We went to the opening day of the 2014 season, our first visit for several years, although we did visit the separate tearooms more recently. The layout has not changed much in my lifetime, but they have updated and introduced newer models. There are also many interactive displays, where a button animates a scene or plays a short sound effect... More
