We spent two hours walking around the outdoor model village, including the wonderful crazy golf set at the end of the walk. All three generations loved it! A wonderful touch is that the models include some local businesses like the Vauxhall Holiday Park, but my favourite was the Lord Elp Ham Hall Museum. My four year old daughter loved the... More
