CURRENT LIGHT UP TIMES: 8.30pm to 10.30pm  (last entry 9.00pm)

If you are visiting for the first time we recommend arriving no later than 9.00pm, but the gates are open until 9.30pm for returning customers

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. 


The Model Village should be seen 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. It's an enchanting and magical experience with the illuminations but you wont see all the tiny details after dark. When open evenings, we always stay open right through the day from 10am.

The lights are best viewed just before it is completely dark and their optimum viewing time is currently around 9.00 to 10.15pm.
