“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

Been wanting to visit here with my fiance for a long time whilst on holiday in Exmouth, but every year we have never got around to going. Finally managed to go last week and loved it! It's really clever and very talented. I can't imagine how much it would have cost to built. Real shame that it wont be there for much longer and I feel that Devon will be missing out on some amazing entertainment. A treat for adults and the kids. The staff were lovely and friendly and I took as many pics as I could before it goes. Get in there quick and visit with your family.

“A must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

The size of this layout can only be appreciated when seen in person. It must take so much time to look after something like this. The operator was lovely and took her time to talk to us about the layout. It's such a shame this will be lost soon, shame on exmoouth council to bulldoze a fantastic area to make way for a car park.
The entrance fee is well worth it compared to other model railways.
Also a must if visiting here is the railway carriage cafe had an amazing meal there.

Myself and the family loved the model railway and the railway carriage next door. They do great snacks and drinks. The model railway operator Paul was brilliant and informative.

“Pricey but worth it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

If you go to Exmouth don't miss the Model Railway. Massive place huge attention to detail, lots of places to eat although it might cost you and arm and a leg. I didn't stay long I think its more for kids but I was in Exmouth so I visited. I think its worth a visit if you have kids and esp if your kids like trains :)
