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.

Very enjoyable. Worth seeing in daylight and magical at night. There were so many little details everywhere that you looked. Plenty of places to sit down, toilets and refreshments also available. Big fish to feed as well!

Over the years we have visited the model village so many times. I took my children and they took theirs to see the delights of a miniature world. It still looks wonderful to me and when it is illuminated at night it is magical.
