This is really great place to visit. Two years ago after reading the reviews I thought that it is not good place to visit. And thank God, that this year my daughter insisted on visiting. I was absolutely surprised because this place is like a little paradise. It is nice and quite, the models and paths in the garden are... More

We popped into the model village after our visit to the zoo as it's only a 15 minute walk round the corner. We loved it. We got a little quiz sheet which helped us navigate round and also we were looking for moles so we could win a little prize which is great fun for the kids. The doubts are... More

While visiting Blackpool, we also visited the Model Village the following day. On entry you are greeted by the owner and given a fun to do questionaire in regard to finding your way around and answering questions. As soon as you enter the gate its like entering a working village, the set up is fantastic.

We visited with one 14 year old and one 2 year old on our way home from a short break in Blackpool. I have only ever been to one model village before when I was young, and this took me right back. It's true that some of the models are old, and not to scale, but that's not anything me... More

This is a very shabby attraction. In need of lots of tlc. We took grandsons age nine and four they were given a quiz to complete on they way around which came in very useful as they glanced at things initially but when we looked at quiz they slowed down and really looked.

Visited with our 5 year old son on a sunny Saturday morning, to avoid the hustle and bustle of town. Spent an hour wandering round a well kept, clean and tidy attraction. The quiz helped to navigate our way around do we didn't miss anything, and spot the mole competition ensured we paid attention. Nice treat at the end once... More

The model village is both quaint and old fashioned - it does provide a lot of interest for the little ones. We let our eldest granddaughter take charge of the route planner which included a Quiz - she also shared the sweets out at the end! I would say an hour is a reasonable time to get round. Short but...
