Easter break

Vastly improved since we last went. My 5 year old grandson absolutely loved it. I have a fairly large mobility scooter and I got around easily.

I went here with my six year old and we both liked seeing all the different little buildings with the characters and scenarios portrayed. There are also many flowers and shrubs along the route, although I don't know much about plants or their keep the whole place looked well kept. There is also a little crazy golf area with picnic...

On Saturday 11th April 2015 we visited Merrivale model village which is located at the far end of Great Yarmouth seafront (Towards the Pleasure Beach) as a family of four after previously visiting approximately two years ago, in between our visits it was clear to see that numerous exhibits had been added whilst the existing models had been well maintained....

The model village is very good and my girls love it but the restaurant we visit regularly especially as they provide a fantastic gluten free menu, along with their sister restaurant the dining room located on the great Yarmouth see front near the cinema.

Really enjoyed walking around looking at the models, a lot to take in here, beautifully tended gardens, fish pools, crazy golf and a fascinating penny arcade to take you back! Free re-entry for the day, and dog friendly too, well worth a visit.

My wife and I come here whenever we go to Yarmouth, it has been a couple of years so some of the exhibits have been changed. It is a great fun little model village, and the addition of the mini golf provided some laughs for us and our friends. Would recommend checking this out if you are in the area.

We spent a lovely afternoon at the model village with the children. We arrived about 1.00 and were greeted by a very friendly man on the desk who gave us all the information we needed for an enjoyable visit. My girls loved looking at the very well laid out houses and towns, the hospital even had an operation going on... More

Our two children aged 2 and 6 loved following the paths and pressing the buttons. We felt it was a little pricey but we loved it and plenty of cheeky adult humour to keep us entertained!!
