This place is such a little treasure. The amount of models and the landscaping of the gardens around the models is amazing. I could spend hours around there. There's also a fantastic tearoom attached to it so you can enjoy an indulgent cream tea afterwards.

A wonderful place to spend a few hours, and very good value for money too. We make a point of visiting every summer, and we have not got tired of it yet as there is always something new to see. Lovingly presented, beautiful gardens, lots of attention to detail with a touch of cheeky humour too - loved by us,... More

Visited here on a Wednesday, when it opens into the evening, so that you can see all the model village scenes lit up, which is magic. The little village scenes are wonderfully maintained, and quite magical! It was great to tie this visit in with the Gt Yarmouth summer fireworks, too, so we made a real day of it overall.... More

We enjoyed our visit, loved the qwerky sense of humour and the colourful displays of flowers. A bit pricey.
