Went with my two sons and husband and spent a good three hours just wandering round my kids loved looking and completing the questions they were fascinated by everything and especially loved pressing the buttons to make things move. Great for the price

So much attention to detail. Some amusing themes too. Kids loved it. Gardens beautifully kept. We spent over an hour here and went round twice as we missed a lot first time round. Very friendly staff. Children particularly liked the trains and airship.

Nice place to visit, not brilliant, very expensive, the big ornaments advertising the place sounds like drones from Dr who, lovely gardens and beautiful flowers 💐

My children love this model village and there is enough little jokes in the models to make it entertaining for adults. New models each year which keeps it fresh and current. Reasonable entry price and can take as long as you like and return for...More
