It is worth spending some time looking at the detail to find the humour behind a lot of the display. It gives the impression that the model-makers (who are very talented) have really enjoyed putting it together.

What a wonderful lace really enjoyed our visit. A bonus that dogs are allowed so long as on a lead. Although a shame a part of cafe not allocated to people with dogs.

Absolutely fantastic day. 4d cinema was brilliant at an extra cost of 1.50 each worth it. Everything was fantastic been to model villages before but this one beats the lot off them. Thank you so much for completing our honeymoon in Torquay will be returning....More

Yes definitely and also have time to eat in the model village restaurant. You can also get your entrance tickets validated to return in the evening to see the village in lights. It’s really good
