Thought the price was a bit expensive for what we saw. Rather a small layout compared to others I have seen. As a model enthusiast myself I did enjoy looking at all the buildings, and a model of the model was a clever idea. Polperro itslf is a lovely village. You have to use the car park and either walk...

Visited whilst on holiday, the whole village is geared up for tourists, hence we felt RIPPED off right from when we entered the car park. £4 for a 3 hour stay, and no concession for disabled!!!!! We then started to make our way to village, there is a tram to take you down and up to the village, another £4... More

This small attraction has a model village layout of Polperro showing a good likeness to the fishing village. There is a small show at the top end of the site explaining the damage caused by previous flooding through the village and how works have progressed to help if this should happen again, a common problem in these small Cornish villages...

Visited here in August as a family of three for £6 and spent around 30 minutes here. We had been staying in Polperro for the week in a holiday cottage and decided to visit here on our last day. We expected a model village obviously but didn't expect it to be an actual model village of Polperro, which was a... More

At £3 entry, this is a great little attraction, showing Polperro in miniature form. Great historical info on flooding in the area too.

While having a holiday in Cornwall we visited this recommended site from local literature. It was cheap to go into but only takes 15 minutes or so to walk around . The short film show and animated history of the area was quite entertaining and fun to watch and saved the day for them . The little buildings need repair... More

Outdated and,to be honest, boring. It's quite cheap though and it would pas half an hour with small children. I certainly wouldn't pay to go in again. The model village looks really tired and dirty too.
