No cash - we are a cashless business and only taking card payments on-site (Visa & Mastercard).
Our coffee shop Open 10.00-4.30 (closing later during evening opening), serving takeaway drinks, snacks, plus light bites & paninis at lunch-time.
The main car park adjacent to us is a council operated pay and display car park, we have no control of it. Taking coins (we don't carry change), cards or using the 'RingGo' app. We'd recommend using the RingGo App (Hampton Ave. 15829) as it operates start/stop and no need to worry about time (remember to stop it). It's accessed from St Marychurch Road (A379) not Hampton Avenue.
TOP TIP 1 - Allow at least 2 hours! The Model Village is much bigger than most people anticipate and as everything is in miniature with lot's of hidden gems, humour and animated scenes at time intervals, the longer you take, the more you will see and experience. A slower pace, and going around twice, will greatly enhance your visit!
TOP TIP 2 - During school holidays - afternoons are significantly quieter than mornings.
