Want to see the Model Village in daylight too? - This is highly recommended as some of the detail, spotter sheet characters, humour and the gardens will not be so visible after dark.......
During October half term (27th to 29th) Arrive around 5.00-5.30, see the gardens during daylight then again after 6.30pm
TOP TIP - Want to make it a full evening out? We are situated within 4 to 5 mins walk of the Babbacombe Downs, with spectacular views along the coast and is well worth a visit. The Downs has a variety of fantastic pubs and restaurants for an evening meal with amazing views. Try searching 'Pubs & restaurants Babbacombe Downs'. (Note: Due to capacity limits we are unable to offer a re-entry/return visit in 2021).
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.
