  • Remember being taken here as a child, now I'm taking my child here 30 years on. Great fascinating place, a few rides and a playground for the kids if the small people can capture their attention for the entire time. Train ride was whilst short good trip around grounds. Really liked the history room. It's a good half day, day out. Will return again next year.
  • What a wonderful day out we have had here! The weather of bright sunshine helped but the look on my granddaughters face when we entered the model village was one of excitement and pure delight. There really is something for all ages it is just perfection down to the smallest detail. Pure nostalgia for us older ones and something the smallest child can tower over making every detail visible. We had a good lunch in the Tea room, followed by some locally produced ice-cream. All in all a very good value day out.
