We went a couple of years ago and it was run down, shabby and very small. Stayed about 15 minutes at best. Drove past again this year and it is now closed due to owner retirement. Bet in its heyday it was really good.

Shut down and derelict, what more can I say? Signposts still up on route so was quite a surprise to find it had clearly been closed for quite some time.

We travelled some distance only to discover that it closed. Leaflets advertising this attraction are still available, so please be aware of that. We didn't have a wasted journey, though, as there is plenty of other things to do on Anglesey.

I must commend Wales' number one model village on the accuracy and high level of detail they've managed to achieve, it was apparent immediately that no expense had been undertaken in the build of the village and indeed the maintenance. They do however neglect to highlight that this attraction is a model replica of Chernobyl 5 years after the incident,... More

Access by vehicle or bus this attraction is located so as to require a vehicle for access. Not a large attraction but worth a visit if passing to see if you can spot copies of buildings you may have seen on the Island.

Called here after reading a leaflet stating this was the best model village in Wales ! However we found a very disappointing small place, paid quite expensive entrance fees to what can only be described as some bodies back garden with a few shabby looking models scattered around, the advertised model train was broken. The café was small and full... More
