What a lovely model train attraction in a nice garden location right on the front of Southport. A must visit for all the family.

This is not really my scene and we went for my husband but I found that I really enjoyed it. The whole attraction is well set out, and the village scene is worth the visit. There is a charge for this but you can spend as long as you like and it is a lovely place to relax and chill.

A lovely way to spend some time with the children. Take a picnic and watch the trains run around a large track surrounded with gardens. The model village is great and well set out. There is a cafe and a small shop. It is easy to find next to the Marine lake.

Visited on 1 November , 2014 accompanied by my wife and 14 year old grandson. Did not know what to expect but was really impressed with the layout and tidiness of this attraction. Pleasant way to spend a couple of hours on a fine day. Totally enjoyed buys all!

We enjoyed this. The models are cute and we enjoyed the trains. Our daughter enjoyed looking out for Items on the quiz. The staff are friendly too.

£8 for two adults and an under 3 (free) was good value for the couple of hours here. Our two year old is Thomas mad, and when he saw the trains he lit up - jumping with delight every a different train chomped past. A quiz was given out at the start of the attraction, which kept the adults entertained.... More

I have been visiting this village for over 8 years on a regular basis with my daughter and her friends. They love to dash off to see where Bob the Builder is hiding (part of a competition) and also complete the crossword. Always spotless and welcoming. Small cafe and toilets on site. Well worth a visit.

A great place to take the children and to see the various trains and of course the model village. Not expensive but not a vast site but there were facilities for snacks and also toilets too and plenty of seats to watch the trains..

Just a few minutes walk from the pier you will find this fantastic model railway experience. The attention to detail is excellent, it is set in manicured lawned areas with villages, streams etc. We have been twice this year with our grandchildren, but it is suitable for all ages. There is a small cafe and toilets, we are sure you... More
