Very interesting walk around the area, looking at the miniatures, especially in the international area. Great buildings, that took thousands of hours to build and are a great insight to that of different countries. Takes around an hour to walk around

We had a fantastic time here. The detail of the buildings were great. The kids enjoyed looking for odd things out. They found Dr Who at his telephone back, characters from Starwars, etc. They enjoyed the train ride and we had a lovely lunch there.

Both kids 5 and 3. The 5 year old was fascinated with the set up and the little figures and settings. The 3 year old wanted to join the settings. All loved the train ride. Worthwhile.
