I visited here with my 10 year old. It is a small place with a model village and 2 model trains moving around it. There are plenty of benches to sit on a sunny day and there are 2 quizzes the children can do on there way around which makes it more fun for them and means you take longer... More

My little girl loves trains so I thought I would take her here. Being that it was advertised as good for kids and highly secure I thought I would at least be able to let her out her buggy. I was rather disappointed when we were handed a set of rules on the way in. No running, no walking on... More

Wonderful miniature village and railway line. Three staff, perhaps the owners, with wide smiles and friendly faces. Worth a visit

Great to get away from the hustle and bustle of the town with an hour or spent in this little village. A great little model railway and it's very relaxing watching the train going round. Lots of detail in the houses, buildings and people. Plenty of places to sit and well kept gardens. There is a cafe and toilets on... More

We paid £12 for three of us to visit the model village. I feel this was over priced for what is on offer. We were in and out in under 10 minutes as the attraction is very small. Nice touch giving quizzes to do but I reckon its only to slow you dpwn.

Visted today with my husband and 6 year old son who is autistic and mad about trains. We spent well over 2 hours there. My son loved it. There is a quiz to complete which you can then enter into a monthly prize draw... Plenty of benches to sit on and watch the trains and a little cafe selling hot... More
