We reopen on July 4th!
Extensive measures have been taken to make sure a visit to the Model Village is enjoyable as always, and as safe as possible for our staff and visitors.
To protect our staff and all customers, you should not visit us if you have, or anyone in your household has, any symptoms of Covid-19 (such as a fever or new and regular cough).
Here is what you need to know....
We are currently operating at less than 25% of our normal capacity
Extra extensive cleaning will take place through the day and screens are set up at all serving areas, with hand gels available.
The Model Village is an outdoor attraction, operating a one-way route through the village with distancing markers on the floor throughout the gardens. For extra comfort & enjoyment we suggest keeping two floor markers apart. There are some indoor/undercover areas, but due to limited indoor cover, we recommend coming prepared for any rain showers.
Visitors are requested not to pass others, but wait for step-aside areas. You can go around as many times as you like.
Payments on site will be by debit/credit card only.
Our coffee shop (open 10am to 5pm) will be serving takeaway drinks, sandwiches and snacks. There will be no indoor seating, but tables available on the large terrace
Our toilets are open to visitors - we have some next to the takeaway coffee shop and some in the middle of the gardens. A disabled toilet is available next to the coffee shop.
Our optional 4D theatre experience, small indoor mini-golf and our evening illuminations will not be available for the time-being as they are not operable with social distancing measures.
The car park adjacent to the Model Village is a council owned and operated pay and display car, card payments can be made at one of the machines (though we'd recommend having a few coins in case)
Please be aware that there are leaflets circulated through hotels and accommodations - these were printed and distributed back in December and January, prior to the covid-19 outbreak. The information on these will be incorrect, please check back on this website only for correct and up-to-date information
