“Great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

Took the grandchildren here and they loved it, it was good doing the quiz whilst going round. The model trains are fantastic, couldn't believe they stop at red lights. Really good price too and very well looked after.

“Lovely place to wander round”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

We paid £4 per adult and wandered around for ages enjoying the model village and trains. There is a competition to complete as you go round spotting things with a puzzle at the end. There are also lots of seating so you can rest for a while. Friendly staff. Small café near the entrance with good prices.

“Excellent morning or afternoon trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

If you like trains or small villages - well worth a visit - very friendly staff and a cheap entry price - excellent value for money very much enjoyed my time there they give you a quiz to fill in if you wish to do so - it makes the visit more fun

“A real labour of love”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

Our 3 year old grandson was thrilled with his visit to this gem in Southport. He never stops talking about it until he fell asleep on the way home! The owners have invested a lot of love and care into creating a superb attraction. Highly recommended.
