Took our 3 and 7 year-old grand children on a beautiful day in April. They found it interesting enough, but the young one was a bit frustrated because he couldn't touch the exhibits. They have a few hands-on things, but they are not really exciting. There is a small picnic and play area. More interactive things for children would make... More

When I first went to Cockington Green I was very impressed however unfortunately not this time. It is expensive i.e. over $20 per adult and to be honest unless you have kids - give this a miss. We spent 40 minutes looking at the miniature houses and after that got bored. Sorry

This was a wonderful trip out. I went with my Mum (70's) and my daughter (6) and we all enjoyed the day, including a wonderful ride on the train that works its way through the miniature buildings. The miniature world was beautifully maintained and we walked around a couple of times and each time we found another aspect that we... More

Cockington Green is a cute miniature village that my kids loved. It's a good place to spend about 2 hours with lots of great displays and a steam train ride. The area is very clean and well maintained. Pre buy the 3 in fun pass online if you are going to AIS, Questscon and Cockington Green as the discounted family... More

Enjoyed the visit on a sunny winter day. Something for everyone. Spent most of the day here. The train ride and cafe were a big hit also. Highly recommend.....
