Great for slightly older children with good imagination and a delight in the detail. Loved the model within a model within a model! And the reflection on daily life! Beautifully tended and delightfully staffed!

Nice walk around the model village. Some quirky surprises as you wander around. The village is immaculately kept, and admission was reasonable.

Wasn’t quite sure what to expect here, but we really enjoyed it. The kids enjoyed pointing out the places that we had seen in real life. Well worth a visit.
