Came here as a bit of a whim and really amazed how good it was. Not just the models and settings but also the planting and use of so many conifers of different types. Every scene was thought out well with some very amusing puns...More

Sorry to hear that the model village did not live up to your expectations. We have excellent reviews but clearly we can't please everyone. Just to respond to your comments... We do not have posted times for the 4D at this time of the year...More

Fascinating, vaious and amusing model town with several unexpected items and some good jokes too. Younger children will be frustrated they cannot climb in among the features however.

Very clever but parts starting to look a bit tired now. Narrow paths must be a nightmare in high season. Nice big car park.

Thank you for visiting. Sorry it did not quite live up to expectation, nearly all of the models have been replaced or refurbished in the last few years.

My husband and I visited this place mid week. The place is great. We saw the 4d cinema offering which was fun. As we both wear glasses we put on the 3d specs over our own as instructed. They were not very comfortable and there...More

Yes definitely and also have time to eat in the model village restaurant. You can also get your entrance tickets validated to return in the evening to see the village in lights. It’s really good
