Nice place to visit to while away half an hour but a little over priced For the amount of time we spent here.I like the way the model reflects what is actually going on in the village - new buildings for example.More

Visited with our toddler. A lovely little model village with plenty to see. Doesn't take long but entry fee is cheap. A nice extra display of small model scenes also but that's an extra pound. Good clean toilets. Lots of Japanese tourists blocking the paths,...More

Model village of the village, interesting, well designed and inexpensive. We didn't book in advance and that's was not a problem. Mostly outdoor, so weather dependent. Parking round the corner £3 for the day.
