The model village is both quaint and old fashioned - it does provide a lot of interest for the little ones. We let our eldest granddaughter take charge of the route planner which included a Quiz - she also shared the sweets out at the end! I would say an hour is a reasonable time to get round. Short but...

The models are so cute, pretty and interesting. I like the quiz. The guy in the shop is very friendly. Highly recommended. Price is reasonable.

My husband, 5year old son and I visited here on a Saturday morning to escape the hustle of most attractions. We found a quaint, picturesque, idillic spot, which was clean and on the whole well kept. The experience included a quiz which helped to navigate the village, ensuring we saw everything and noticed things we might have missed. Nice touches... More

Not accessable for mobility scooters and very tight pathways even for wheelchairs. If your able body then its a great little attraction to spend a couple of hours at. You get a little quiz sheet to do which navigates you around the model village and gardens which is a bit of fun. However as a wheelchair user, I got stuck... More

Had a great time at Blackpools model village today. It is very quaint and set within beautiful gardens. There's a fun questionnaire that guides you round so that nothing is missed. A lot of models and scenes. The kids will love this. Loads to see. Very reasonably priced too and the bus stop is right outside. Ice cream is also... More

A nice quiet morning walking through the gardens looking at the models. They thoughtfully provide a quiz which also acts a guide around the site. Also with the little details someone has a great sense of humor.

Received a warm welcome when I got the tickets at this venue. I was also handed a Route Quiz, which not only suggested the preferred route, but also incorporated a quiz. What a good idea. The buildings were well laid out amongst the nice gardens. There was also working trains to observe. Some of the buildings did need some tlc,... More

The model village is a Greta place to visit for everyone although a few of my favourite models have been removed since my last visit 10 years ago. When I visited, it was so quiet and sunny; such a relaxing few hours which is hard to find in Blackpool. Would recommend the ice cream, absolutely delicious! My 2nd favourite attraction... More
