A low cost attraction for all ages - can wander round or sit and people watch - the quiz is a fantastic idea and makes you look closely at the detail - unexpectedly enjoyable and a reasonably priced coffee shop and clean loos - a real bonus!! Well worth a visit 😃

We dropped in by chance over Easter after the weather scuppered our plans for the day and we ended up finding this little gem! It's great fun for all the family. The kids had a quiz to fill in as well as an Easter egg hunt. The models are well detailed and the general surrounding are well cared for. The... More

We came with our 3 year old son who chose to go and see the trains. He enjoyed watching the model trains come and go and cross each other, go through tunnels, stop at the lights... the Easter egg hunt was a plus and kept the observation going. We also enjoyed filling in the quiz but the questions were sometimes... More

Worth a visit if you have children. We came here with a 9 year old and he loved it. We were handed a quiz to do on the way round and all children received a free treat from the cafe for taking part in the Easter egg on hunt. Credit to staff as they were lovely, really pleasant.

Lovely, well kept model village with its own railway. Activities available to keep the little ones entertained. Plenty of seats for the older one to sit, relax and admire the models and watch the trains pass by. Reasonable admission fee and restraint on time. Hope to call again to treat the grandchildren to a visit.

We popped in here whilst at a music festival at Pontins for a bit of a break from four days of relentless hardcore electronic music, and it turned out to be a great move. It's a lovely little place and appears to be a real labour of love as it's immaculately kept. We arrived just as they closed the main... More
