Visited the Model Village as part of the Shearing holiday. My last visit was 20 years ago when I thought it was great but there was lots of new additions. Definitely recommended.

We weren't very sure to visit this place but glad that we did. My son totally enjoyed this place and 4D was a bonus. He loved the trains and remote car racing. I will surely recommend this place for parents with kids.
