I was here in the course of my work with 2 other carers and 3 wheelchair users. It’s a magical place with beautiful gardens and great for kids and adults alike. You can easily spend a few hours and still not see everything. During our visit the clouds opened with a thunder storm and rather than let us get wet while waiting for our taxi’s the owner of the village invited us into the cafe and provided hot drink for us all free of charge. This young man couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful. Thank you not only for a lovely day out but also for your kindness and warm welcome.

This s great place to see , you feel like a giant in here. Plus you’ve got Stanley Park bang outside. And the zoo over the road. There’s car parking and a cafe too.

Went today - two 63-yr-olds and a 10-year-old. We spent a lovely hour or so following the route in the FREE quiz our grandson was given.

There was bags of room for me on my mobility scooter, and I was able to visit everything.

The models are a nice mix of the original 1972 creations and modern additions. There are a few model trains for you to operate, as well as static displays. Look out for the names of everything, as there are loads of nice puns about!

The shop sells mementos, toys, Wallings ice creams (yummmmmy), and sweets, and hot drinks are also available. There are sitting places scattered around the whole site.

I was pleasantly surprised that there were more adult couples than families with kids! Shows that it is great for ALL ages.

Well worth a visit, and priced about right. Well done.

The layout is well planned although there does seem to be a lot of open space. When entering, you are given a fact sheet and asked to identify certain features of the exhibits(such as: name the proprietor of The betting Shop). It is clean and the entry fee seems reasonable. It is particular interest to families.

Good trip round the model village in Stanley Park which is well worth while. Like the winding path around and be sure to complete the questionnaire and maybe win a prize and also makes sure you see all the features.
