Blackpool Model Village and Gardens
Blackpool Model Village, an award winning visitor attraction, established in 1972, is set in a stunningly beautiful landscaped 2½ acres of carefully tended gardens with paved pathways that provide full access to visitors.
There are many hand crafted models and figures that represent lifes rich tapestry and step back in time to those bygone days when life seemed to move at a slower pace, from a Scottish Castle, protected by its ranks of Guardsmen to a tranquil Cornish fishing village. From thatched cottages hidden away and a Tudor village whos diminutive residents enjoy a cricket match on the village green. 2012 has seen many new exhibits added along with a working tram running through the shopping centre of the main village!
There are 100's of creative village scenes that will spark your imagination to life as you wander around the beautiful gardens along the walkways.
