Book Tickets Online


Merrivale Model Village will now remain closed for the remainder of the 2020 season. Set to reopen in February 2021.

One of Great Yarmouth's best loved family attractions, 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.

First time for opening during February half term and with a special discounted price of £4.99 per person for all classes.
