    We took our three year old grandchild and she was captivated by the 'dolls houses' and the little train that runs around the site. The attention to detail is amazing and the site is so beautifully mai...  more »

  • A great day out with kids. The models are impressive, with fully working miniature trains running the length of the extensive village. There is also a larger train for kids and adults to ride on for a small extra fee. There is a kids playground area and refreshments. Recommend on a sunny day.
  • My two year old absolutely loved it. As the models are low down he could see everything easily, and he was delighted by the trains, which are frequent and varied enough to maintain interest and encourage little ones to follow them through the village. The play area was fairly modest but nonetheless good fun. The cafe was just ok - a variety of options but would have been nice to see some healthier choices. Overall it's a great half day activity and I'm sure we'll be back soon.
  • Really nice place to hang out for Families with Kids! The miniature models show creativity and take care of minute details covering different sports, monuments and culture of UK. There is a train ride and Model boat driving area also. Overall Fun experience!
  • Great place for young and old. Intricate model village with some small 'tongue in cheek' humour for those with a keen eye and easy sense of humour. Nice cafe with Great! Picnic area. Also a small train you can ride on for a small additional cost. No steps but some of the paths are a little narrow in places. Everyone I know who has visited, has enjoyed it.
  • A lovely day out particularly with kids. Great tea room with lots of options, and a kids play area. The model village has been meticulously cared for. The trains that go around are great!
