Merrivale Model Village Illuminations

Merrivale Model Village Illuminations

Details

One of Great Yarmouth's best loved family attractions illuminated by night, set in over an acre of award-winning landscaped gardens with streams, waterfalls and lake with Koi Carp.

Sit for a while, escape the hustle and bustle while you watch the Merrivale Railway go by and wonder at the models.

Traditional crazy golf is also included in the admission price.

The popular Old Penny Arcade is where you can hear the 'laughing sailor' and see 'what the butler saw', and not forgetting the Merrivale Tea Rooms, a favourite on the Golden Mile. Delicious food with diabetic, gluten-free and allergy free choices.

NEW for 2017 Rocket Merri 1 and Merri Car Company.
