This was a bit disappointing in my view. The model village itself was small, you could have done this in about 10 minutes. There are lawn games if you have children which would increase the length of your visit. We had lunch in the cafe...More

This is a very nice small model village. The village contains a miniature version of the castle which they’ve re-produced. The village will take under half an hour to get around. This place is disabled friendly, they’ve got a wheelchair on site.

Honestly this is kind of lame. Good if you have kids i guess and want to take them somewhere for a bit of outdoor time in the garden. Not worth the $ entry for me.

Lovely place. Good pricing. Would be happy to recommend. There are also giant games such as jenga, connect4 etc in the garden, very relaxing. Your ticket lasts the week do you can return too.

Have visited twice now - this time on a combined ticket for the swanage railway. If you have visited other model villages such as the one in Great Yarmouth, this will seem a very poor relation as there are few actual models there. However, it...More

I last went to see the model village 12 yrs ago, but it hasn't lost its appeal. The young children thought it was great. One remarked that it made them think they were a giant. The garden activities were good as. The restaurant was clean...More
