About

Wroxham Miniature Worlds is 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. Come and be immersed in our miniature worlds.

The attraction is made up of many zones including model railways in various scales, slot car displays, a whole city made from over 130,000 LegoTM bricks! Model boat displays and a host of toys from across the decades there is something for the whole family.

We are excited to be adding new interactive elements to our visitors every year. Some of our highlights include interactive Flight Simulators, Train Simulators and more new railway layouts some of which you can drive yourself. Back due to popular demand is our old fashioned vintage Penny Arcade, a range of original machines lovingly repaired and renovated.

Something just for the kids - we have built a giant wooden train table for the kids to play and enjoy. We would love to see your creations and have them sent to us via social media!

Something just for the big kids - come and shoot some space invaders, eat some pac pills or thrash the buttons of track and field and relive the days of classic arcades. Leg warmers and floppy haircuts are optional.

Our little café serves a range of high quality teas, coffees and hot chocolates. Popular cold drinks alongside light refreshments and everyone's favourite classic, sausage rolls.

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.
