CURRENT LIGHT UP TIMES: 8.00pm to 10.00pm  (last entry 9.00pm)

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. 


We recommend seeing the Model Village in daylight too, either buy using our free return photo-pass to visit twice or by arriving earlier, and doing a walk around, before it gets dark. During the day 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 10am.

The optimum viewing time is currently around 8.30 to 9.30pm.
