Model villages have been one of the traditional seaside entertainment for many years but this one is slightly different in being built within a part of Lumps Fort, one of the Defence Forts for Portsmouth. The entrance is next to a good café with hot and cold food and shown at it’s best on a warm sunny day. The model village itself is an eclectic mix of all types and sizes with a model railway running through and well maintained and planted. There are amusing names for the shops and buildings and in particular look out for the epitaphs on the gravestones. Additionally within parts of the Fort structure you can walk through the original Rifleman’s Tunnel to a large detailed model of Portsmouth Guildhall in Balsa Wood and a model of The Spinnaker Tower made from matchsticks. Additionally in separate buildings there are toy and doll collections displayed. Opening is seven days a week until the end of September from 10.30am until 6.00pm Then for the Winter period Sat/Sun only from 10.30am to 5.00pm (October until the end of March). Tickets are £3.50 for adults, £1.50 for children plus concessions
