I love model villages and will always go if there's is one around. After a delightful day in Polperro I was very pleased to discover the model village and even more pleased it was only £3 entrance for an adult. The pleasure ended there. It...More

When you're finished seeing the main attractions that Polperro has to offer, check out this opportunity to see a bird's eye view (and then some) of the hamlet. Also very interesting was the video footage played of a flooding episode in Polperro - it is...More

Cheap to go in and take a peek...we enjoyed it. Took about 45 mins or so having a look, we enjoyed the funky model show at the end.

After a warm welcome as you enter, there is a model railway display to the left, then the model village ahead as you emerge into the open. You can stroll through at low level to identify places in the real Polperro, then take the high...More

We read the mixed reviews but I do love model villages and there's not much else to do in Polperro. So we have it a try. It's surprisingly small and run down for a model village. Really needs to just be like £1 per person....More

Having been to other model villages before and therefore having something to compare this with I was disappointed with Polperro. The buildings were in bad condition and very little attention to detail had been taken. The model village is very small and 5 minutes is...More

We were here at Easter this year 2017, haven't been in here for ages, it's so magical, the model village of Polperro is very well made although showing signs of age now. However still thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
