First visit but definitely not our last! This is a must if you are visiting Southport with children- truly magical, especially the giant pigeons! Charming service and reception!

My little boy is a train enthusiast so this was perfect for him and not too expensive. A lovely few hours were spent in here with him watching the trains - he must have run around it more than 6 times. The staff were very friendly and helpful and they had a quiz to keep the children occupied with the... More

We did enjoy our time at the model railway but we thought the price was a bit much, £14ish for 2 adults & a child and it only took us around 30 minutes to see everything.

I visited the model village in Southport with my family / young children. They loved watching the very well maintained trains / model villages and houses, as well as doing the quiz as we went around. The quiz was well designed for youngsters and not too difficult even for toddlers. The owners clearly take great pride in their achievement in... More

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!
