Wroxham Miniature Worlds
The largest indoor modelling attraction in the UK
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.
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.
Recent additions include the UK top 100 toy display, hand built dolls house display by Sue Wiley and vintage model arcade cabinets with games you can play.
What you can be seen at Wroxham Miniature Worlds has been in development since early 2011 and took a small team over three years of hard work to bring to you.
The attraction is spread over nearly 15,000 square feet that’s almost 1/3 of an acre of undercover attraction!
Our entire attraction is indoors, so it can be enjoyed regardless of the weather outside. Car parking is available and a cafe in the entrance foyer offers hot and cold drinks and snacks.
It has been a massive project which has to be seen to be believed but I will try and sum up a few of the superlatives.
We have used over 20 miles of wire to wire up the layouts We have used enough wood if laid end to end to stretch from Wroxham to Norwich. We have used enough Plywood to cover 4 tennis courts. We have used over 5 miles of plaster bandage to create the scenery.
We have used over 1 ton of plaster to create the mountains and other scenery. We have used enough fibreglass to build a yacht in creating the mountains. We have used more than 10,000 screws in assembling the layout frames. More than 50,000 man hours have gone into creating the attraction. We have used over 10,000 trees to create the scenery There are over 5,000 individual model people.
There are over 2,500 individual pieces of model railway track about 70 scale miles. There are over 300 model buildings more than some villages! There are over 100 trains and over 1000pieces of rolling stock. There are over 1000 non model railway items on display. We have used over 75,000 Lego™ bricks.
We have used over 10,000 pieces of KNEX to construct a massive ball machine. At peak, we have had over 25 people working on site at any one time.
