Merrivale Model VIllage, Great Yarmouth

Visit a typical English village in miniature at Merrivale Model VIllage. Take time to discover the details and hidden gems of the village; explore its nooks and crannies, meet its inhabitants, and watch out for one of the village’s 28 different types of trains whizzing around. Keep your eyes peeled for some of Merrivale’s most unusual characters, such as the bank robber and even the streaker. As well as the model village, there’s an Old Penny Arcade to enjoy with a wide range of vintage slot machines dating from the 20's to the 60's. Bags of old pennies to use in the arcade are available from the Merrivale gift shop. Also included in your ticket price is a nine-hole mini-golf course, set on raised ground with views over the model village and its award-winning gardens.

  • The model village isn't the biggest your see but it is great fun for little ones. Model of all sorts from big wheel to space rocket. Kids loved feeding the fish. Crazy golf on site too and one of the best tea rooms on the mile. Tip: can be costly so look for money off coupons in the various tourist guides!
  • Slow paced attraction that is fun to take the children around. The models are great and the fish pond is amazing. The free crazy golf is only good for entertaining toddlers while the adults sit and chill over a cuppa. Great little attraction though. I'd go again.
  • We went there in April 2017 as we were on holiday, the model village was awesome, lots to see and we noticed there are a few quirky features that are quite comical, you have to look for them though! One of them is a bedroom window with something happening! I'll add that pic now so you can see for yourself! We would thoroughly recommend a visit to Merrivale Model Village, the kids will love it and so will you!
  • Lovely gardens and nice exhibit. Need the weather to be nice to go. Great wee hour walk
