Details

Welcome to Wroxham Miniature Worlds.

The largest indoor modelling attraction in the UK stretching over 10,000 square feet with some of the largest model railways in the world on permanent public display.

The attraction is made up of many zones including model railways in various scales, slot car displays, a whole city made from LegoTM bricks, model boat displays and a host of toys from across the decades there is something for the whole family. New for 2018 vintage Penny Arcade, Interactive Flight Simulators, Train Simulators and more new railway layouts some of which you can drive yourself.

** Coming Soon ** From Autumn 2018 the modelling work will continue on our newest layout. Set in the Peak District area in the 1950's/1960's featuring steam trains and the dreaded diesels. Little cameo scenes will be dwarfed by the scenery covering towns, countryside, and so many more aspects of life.

Our 34 seat café serves a range of hot and cold drinks alongside light refreshments, with our new small gift shop selling a selection of model railway and gift items.

Located in the heart of the Norfolk Broads National Park and just stone's throw from the centre of Wroxham, opposite Wroxham and Hoveton train station
