I was expecting a traditional victorian model village but it is more like a play mobil village, with the bake off tent and game of thrones scenes. Good way to spend a couple of hours on a nice sunny day. Babbacombe itself is also lovely,...More

Paid £50 for family of five. Kids 7 and 5. Did the whole thing in 45 mins. Really overpriced! Jokes over the heads of kids. So much else you can do for that much money. Only one moving train.

Yes definitely and also have time to eat in the model village restaurant. You can also get your entrance tickets validated to return in the evening to see the village in lights. It’s really good
