Admittedly we got there at 4pm but after all electronic displays were turned off we left by 4.25pm. Staff didn't care when I complained so no need to go again. The displays are showing wear and very shabby. We visited 2 years ago and it was delightful then. So sad seeing zero care factor

We went on a cold windy drizzly day, I'm sure in a nice day you could spend longer there, but my 3yr old loved it, he wanted to touch everything but there were miniature trains he could press the buttons to make move and the windmills he could make turn so there was enough to keep his hands busy.

Its so beautiful to be able to wander among the displays, everyone seems to have a cheeky secret and the kids had a ball picking them out. The fact that some of the displays are hands-on just makes the kids day...hard to get them off and on to the next one. All the gardens are beautifully kept. Love this place.

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

Went here myself as a kid and it was nice to take our kids here. It's actually more impressive as an adult because you realise and appreciate that the building are replicas of actual buildings throughout the world. A few interactive displays where kids get to press buttons also which the kids love and a trip on the mini steam... More

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
