TOP TIPS -
IMPORTANT, see the Model Village in daylight too - This is highly recommended as some of the details, spotter sheet characters, humour and the gardens will not be so visible after dark. Our new Crazy Golf, included free with admission, will only be available during daylight. We suggest you arrive about 1 hour before it starts getting dark and doing a daylight walk around first and go around again after dark.........
Suggested arrival times for dates above: - early August: 7.30-8.00pm, late August: 7.00-7.30pm, September: 6.30-7.00pm, October: 4.45-5.15pm, Christmas: 3.00-3.30pm. See our opening times for latest entry and closing, allow 2 to 2.5 hours for your visit.
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. Try searching 'Pubs & restaurants Babbacombe Downs'.
