NEW Evening Illuminations Experience!
We are working on a major revamp of our evening illuminations, with lots of new light effects illuminating the perimeter trees, surrounding you in a spectacle of enchanting colours. We are also adding new lights and effects in amongst the models and displays, which will include miniature fire effects and other special effects.
The village is transformed in the evenings with thousands of miniature lights - we really do have two attractions in one! The miniature lights enable you to see what goes on inside many of the models and, as dusk develops into darkness, the illuminations beautifully light up the gardens and models creating an enchanting atmosphere.

NOTE: dates are subject to change, please check nearer your visit time. Extra dates may be added due to the popularity of this experience.
We strongly recommend seeing the Model Village in daylight too - You can do this by allowing 2 to 2.5 hours for your visit, arriving 30-60 minutes before the lights come and doing a walk around first, and then again once dusk sets in. During daylight you experience the beautiful gardens and amazing detail in the models, after dark it's an enchanting and magical experience. When open evenings, we always stay open right through the day from opening time.
