A miniature delight

A lovely morning spend wandering round this delightful garden all set in miniature .... We even went back at nightfall to see the scenes illuminated.

We stopped off at the cafe only, for lunch which we greatly enjoyed. Nice music, smart, polite, friendly staff and lovely food made for a relaxed lunch we really enjoyed.

We have visited Merrivale every year the last 6 years...and every year there is always something new to see. Entry for a family is £22 but once you have your hand stamped with a lovely blue M you can visit as many times as you want to in one day, so we always visit twice in a day. Included in... More

Went here years back when my children were small and they loved it! They are older now...but still enjoyed it. Very well kept and very clean. Loads of time and details goes into the models. The village isn't very big so we only spent half hour -40 minutes here. We paid about £21 for a family ticket. I think you... More

A very pleasant way to spend an hour or more. The flowers were beautiful and the layout was amazing. I loved the attention to detail in the models and felt as excited as my 3 year old grandson to press the buttons to make the different things move!

Visited again today with family after a visit last year. Was amazed that in this short period of time, many pieces has been rearranged, revitalised or were brand new. The building are fantastic (our favourite was the 'flasher' in the bedroom with the lad with the remote controlled car outside - who's accidentally activated the garage door) Many of the... More

All my years in Norfolk and many trips to Yarmouth we'd never bothered visiting as it looked a bit naff. Now we've got a child we're always looking for new things to do and at £7 per adult and us having a BOGOF voucher from Spree it seemed worthwhile. It was great. So much more there then you can see...

It cost us £22 for a family of 4 to get in but it was worth it as we had such a fun day. There is an atmosphere when you walk in, a pleasant one! All the staff seem happy and will go out of there way to help you. Both my 4 year old and 8 year old loved... More
