6 reviews of Model Village in English
The Merrivale Model Village is closed for winter until March 29th 2009. I hadn’t been to the model village for many years but I visited this year and really enjoyed it. They’ve added a huge new castle model in the center of the “village” and if you go by night in summer the lights look lovely!
I visited this place as a child and was fasinated, have since been back and was not disappointed, its been done up, with plenty to do and will keep you’re kids amused, the cafe is very reasonably priced as well as the village itself.

I can remember going here as a child and it still sticks in my mind especially when it was all lit up after dark, i have since taken my children round it and they love it as well. I particularly remember the model railway running through it and the church with singing coming from it.
It is situated along the main seafront road but is out of town and it can be difficult to park near, we usually park down by the pleasure beach fun fair and walk up although for tiny feet its still bit of a trek.
Well worth a visit. It has stuck in my mind as being a magical experience when i was a child.
We visited here in the summer holidays of this year and absolutly loved it. My 4 year old daughter loved it as well as us. At night time it illuminates to add to the magic of the place. Reasonable entrance costs which always helps on holiday. The only gripe about it is and its not its fault but parking is horrific. You have to park miles away and walk to it--not easy with a moaning 4 year old.But its a great place and one we would definatly visit again if we visit the area again.
