This is a treat for young and old. I have nothing but admiration for its owners who have painstakingly created a work of art for us all to enjoy. The intricate detail of the models is inspiring.

Really great for young kids. We took my two year old nephew and he would have stayed all day. Unfortunately it was raining when we went but we still had a good day. Staff were very friendly and really helpful. Would recommend it for anyone with little guys or girls who love trains.

It's great to see that attractions like this still exist, thanks to the hard work and dedication of the staff. A great way to spend an hour, or more, for little or big kids alike!

Took our train loving grandson here & he thought it was great. Spread over a large, immaculate garden area with about 5 trains running through the model village. The models are well spaced, we followed a quiz/trail which made it more interesting . Everything is very clean, good facilities, simple snacks & drinks on sale with outdoor seating area, friendly,...
