from April 6th to October 19th
PLUS Monday to Fridays from July 24th to August 31st
The park is open all day, right through, from 10.00am
Lights on from: 8.00pm.
The optimum viewing time: Around dusk - approx. 8.45-10.15pm (varies depending on weather).
Latest Entry: If it is your first visit, no later than 9.00pm to allow enough time, though we strongly recommend arriving earlier to experience the park in daylight too - a must if you want to do the character hunts. If you are returning using the 'free return', latest entry is 9.30pm (admission gates will close).
The Park Closes: by 10.30pm
DON'T MISS IT - The village is transformed in the evenings with thousands of miniature lights - we really do have two attractions in one!
We highly recommend you experience the Model Village day and evening. During the day, see the intricate details of the models set in beautiful gardens and children can do a character hunt following a spotter sheet. At night the enchanting illuminations light up the gardens and enable you to see what goes on inside many of the models.
One Ticket - Two Great Visits FREE RETURN VISIT WITHIN 7 DAYS
Visit day & evening - During your first visit, keep your admission receipt and, before you leave, obtain a photo-pass from the gift shop. This will enable you to return once for free within 7 days. If you can't visit twice, then why not come early evening see the gardens by day, then again once the lights come on. SEE UNDER FAQS FOR FULL DETAILS
