  • Been going to Yarmouth many years now, and always curious about this little village. Finally got to go today, weather was decent which was good as is completely set outside. Really well maintained and my little boy became ecstatic with the interactive displays and the model railway which ran through the exhibition. Cost I thought was a bit expensive, however unlimited visits for the day seemed to make the price worthwhile All in all, a great place.
  • Absolutely brilliant. Very interactive and funny displays very highly detailed. The little one loved it. Plus there's a small mini golf course in there that's free with the entry price.
  • A fun place for kids and family... it's well maintained and a must visit if you are in and around the area..
  • Alot bigger than expected, the kids really enjoyed it which was surprising at 7 and 11. They have a quiz for the kids that gives you something to hunt for on the way round. Well worth the money!
  • Fantastic all well laid out well. The lighting at night is great. Gardens are beautiful not a weed in sight.
