Having visited other model villages by other designers this was a very pleasant experience. It is as much for the adults as for children with a wide ranging number of models and scenes and included a 4D film. There is also some comedy included with the names of the companies referred to i.e. Walter Wall carpets. It is not suitable however for disabled people or those in wheelchairs as it is located on a hill.

This is a fantastic small attraction with huge amounts of detail in each and every model. We walked around twice and kept spotting new things. The evening illuminations are wonderful. Be aware that some parts of the attraction are on a very steep hill which might be difficult with a pushchair.

This was a trip well worth the visit an excellent a day out for people of all ages ample parking the village itself is an unbelievable the amount of small detail that has gone into every model and the patience it must take and once you have paid you keep your ticket and go again for free I suggest you do morning then in winter go back to see the Christmas lights

Again we were having childhood memories. Babbacombe is a lovely area and this park has much more to offer than 50 yrs ago.
Now a 4D cinema experience. Rides for children. Cafe and toilets. There is plenty to see
Staff are friendly and welcoming and knowledgeable.
