Popeye village was reasonably priced. The lady in the ticket office gave us a discount as we only had about 50 mins before closure. Ticket price included a glass of punch, photo with animations team and a postcard. You could enter the buildings and look around at your own leisure. The animations team put on an entertainments show singing songs... More

Great fun - kids just love it. Looks as though it's going to fall down any minute but is actually very safe. During the summer season they produce a 15 minute movie using us "tourists" as the characters. Take part it will have you laughing all the way especially when they invite you to view the finished product in the... More

This was our second visit to Popeye village and it didn't dissapoint second time around! Lovely staff and lots to do. The main attraction for us is the clear water to swim in and the inflatables and trampolines - you need to be fairly fit to tackle them but they are excellent fun for the family- there is also plenty...

We got the 237 bus to the entrance (runs hourly). The road leading to this attraction is very narrow once you leave the main road so it is not safe to walk there. When we got off the bus we were confronted by a view of the top the restaurant and what used to be a children's amusement park with... More
