We paid £4 per adult and wandered around for ages enjoying the model village and trains. There is a competition to complete as you go round spotting things with a puzzle at the end. There are also lots of seating so you can rest for a while. Friendly staff. Small café near the entrance with good prices.

If you like trains or small villages - well worth a visit - very friendly staff and a cheap entry price - excellent value for money very much enjoyed my time there they give you a quiz to fill in if you wish to do so - it makes the visit more fun

Our 3 year old grandson was thrilled with his visit to this gem in Southport. He never stops talking about it until he fell asleep on the way home! The owners have invested a lot of love and care into creating a superb attraction. Highly recommended.

Not the best model village we have visited, but is value for money. To be honest, you could walk around in just a couple of minutes, but they give you a quiz to fill in, which does make you look at the exhibits and makes it more interesting. Don't be put off by the size, it's well worth a visit,... More

Very peaceful site with some trains and lots of model buildings. We got a quiz to do whilst walking around the site. Lots of seats so you can sit and watch the trains go by! Refreshments and toilets available. Reduction for seniors and students

Great visit to the model railway village, not the biggest of places but great to saunter round when the weather is nice. There is a quiz to do as you go round which keeps interest and looking at everything to get the answers!!! Not the cheapest for the size of the attraction, but still good.
