A lovely presentation of everything English in miniature - from the maypole to the slate mine - and our grandchildren were fascinated by the sights and sounds. I particularly liked the humour which presented itself in imaginative names of ficticious businesses.

This is a great little place. Loads of different things to see great little set ups with sounds and music. There is also a free little crazy golf section. Penny arcades and a lovely little cafe.

The model village is rather old fashioned but quaint. For children it could be wonderful. Cafe and ice cream nearby. Friendly atmosphere. Not crowded when I visited in October
