“Be a kid for a bit.”

Polperro Model Village Land of Legend & Model Railway
Reviewed August 23, 2012

We stopped here to pass some time whilst waiting for a bus, and it's a proper old-fashioned minature town (i.e. tacky and inaccurate) however it is really charming. The land of legend bit is great - moving puppets and effects for kids to enjoy!

So it looks a bit old, and there is plants growing through some of the houses. But for £3 it's amazing. Pretend to be Godzilla in the model town & get scared/ cry with laughter in the bit at the end.

The simple truth is this is rubbish. If only the owners put some effort into maintaining and improving the model village it could be pretty good. It's not even clean and tidy. Maybe some lights in the houses and some smoke from the chimneys would interest the kids. There was some music coming from the the model church, but not angelic choir music but some modern rap! Come on guys its 2012 and a recession you need to do better if you want more paying customers.

This is a great little place, especially if its raining. Really good value - where else can you go for a couple of quid and get free re-entry again and again. Model village nice, interesting village information and spooky show at the end. My children go every year and love it. People who run it are really friendly too.

Definately worth calling in.

My daughter absolutely loved going here, every time we walked past, she wanted to go back. The owners are really lovely and we only ever paid the once for our multiple return visits. The land of legend thing is great fun, even making a young teen standing near us jump out of his skin. Go and see it, you won't regret it!
