  • A great 'little' Portsmouth gem. The village is really back to it's best, your little ones will love it. There is a cafe on site serving food, drinks and ice creams. When I was there the kids were loving running after Thomas the tank engine and Percy.
  • I love this little hidden gem...round the corner from the expensive greens cafe. Next to the kiddies park so good for parents. It sells the best chips around! Great for sitting outside and having a bite and a coffee without breaking the bank! 😁
  • Staff were very friendly, kids enjoyed the little quiz (and the prizes!), the models were a little tired but the trains were entertaining. It was clean and well presented, perhaps more could be made of the tunnel and models within. I understand it's under new management so they plan to refresh the models. A good way to pass some time with smaller children.
  • Very quaint model village with some nice details. Good place to have a picnic up on the hill overlooking Southsea. Trouble is, it's not very big so it won't take long to look round. Also the childrens play area is very run down.
  • Great little model village with lots of small touches for young children. Cheap and cheerful and very friendly.
