The main exhibition was great. Some of it however was a bit tired. Things did not work. The models were not as I would have expected. But on the whole it was good. The live fish were great.

Visited here with the family. We had a lovely stroll round interacting with the models and even enjoyed a quick game of crazy golf. It was a sunny day and as this is an outside exhibition you may wish to avoid when raining

Merrivale model village is such fun to visit. The models are excellent and new ones are added each year. Paying to go in entitles you to visit all day and this worth doing, as you can go back in the evening when everything is lit up and it takes on a very special quality.

Visited the miniature village when I was a kid.. It was magical. It has existed in my memory as one of my favorite childhood experiences. I am planning to go back to England next summer and this is definitely on the visit list because I can't wait to now show my son.

Visit here whilst on a short break with my family. There is so much to see! There has been a lot of time and effort been put into this Display. It's great to take the kids and let them watch the displays in action. The kids won't be disappointed if you take them!

Went to one of the special night time illumination evenings. It was really beautiful. The kids enjoyed a free game of mini golf as we waited for it to get dark. The effect of it all lit up amongst the shrubbery was stunning. The staff were really friendly. Finished it of at the end with an old fashioned arcade, where... More
