We went recently, dogs are also allowed (free of charge), it was lovely. We had the 'whats on guide' so got 50p off per person, which was a bonus! We then continued to the merrivale amusements with the old penny arcade, which was fab. We then went to the tea rooms...which is deffo worth a trip, the food was lovely & very reasonably priced. The staff where lovely & again very dog friendly!!!

Went to merrivale for more than 10 less than 100th time at Easter still as lovely as ever always find it relaxing and we love spotting what has moved since the last time we came.... there always updating the models and displays are fantastic..... Dog friendly so a bonus for those who find it difficult for things to do with a dog in tow..... great old time arcade at the end which kids always find entreating and the cafe serves the most fantastic cream teas and cakes on the seafront...... even do a dinner for the dog!!!! its not why would you go there its why wouldn't you..... extra bonus its lite up in the evenings through the summer.... and we will be back there again, one of my favorite days out around norfolk :)

We visit this attraction every time we visit Great Yarmouth. It never disappoints.
On this occasion we took our 2 year old son who loved it. Plenty of interactive buttons to press and fish to feed.
The staff were welcoming. There were even some new displays added since our last visit.
At the end of the Model Village there is an old fashioned arcade which is operation by old 1p coins. Nice touch.

Great fun.

we fed fish.

We wandered around for a couple of hours.

We watched the trains and the various moving displays. I and the kids loved it.

The old fashioned arcade on the way out is great too.

Recommended.

This is a feast for enthusiasts of model villages & model railways, with stunning supporting landscapes. There's more than a dash of quirky humour in their displays, with a 9-hole crazy golf course & retro Arcade games to try. An absolute treasure trove for everyone.
