We're delighted to report that Anglesey Model Village is now under new ownership and re-opened to visitors in 2019, having previously been closed and abandoned for a number of years.
We've had a fantastic response to this initial re-opening and we're working very hard to bring the model village back to its best and introduce many new additions to the displays (as well as a few extra surprises elsewhere too!). Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to keep up to date on our progress.
MODEL VILLAGE AND CAFE RE-OPEN FROM SATURDAY 29th MAY 2021.
10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mon - Sun
Last entry to model village 30 mins before closing.

GENERAL ADMISSION ADVANCED BOOKING IS NOT REQUIRED - However, please note that the model village and cafe both have capacity limits. Once capacity is reached, the site may temporarily close to new visitors attempting to access the site.
Please be aware that you will be required to adhere to social distancing and other Covid-19 safety measures in place. This includes the wearing of face coverings when indoors (except children under 11 years old). Please bring your own face covering; we do not provide them.
Should you be visiting as a group, please ensure that you are familiar with Welsh Government regulations regarding the 'rule of 6' as to how a group can be comprised. Further details are available at: https://gov.wales/coronavirus-regulations-guidance
Should you be a large group or a group with special requirements, we do recommend that you contact us in advance of your visit.
Please do not visit us should you (or someone in your extended household) has either:
- a high temperature
- a persistent cough
- a loss of sense of taste or smell
This is regardless of a recent negative Covid-19 test that you may have had.
NHS WALES TEST, TRACE AND PROTECT OPERATES HERE - It is a requirement under Welsh Government law that contact details of visitors are collected on behalf of the Covid-19 contact tracing service here in Wales. For each member of the group aged over 16, we will on arrival, ask for a first name and surname along with a method of contact (e.g. mobile phone number). Supporting proof of identity for each person will also be required (in some circumstances, all adults in the group will also be required to each provide proof of address). We also keep a record of the overall group size as well as details of your arrival and departure. The data is collected and stored electronically and is then deleted 21 days after your last visit. We will only provide this data to NHS Wales (and that is only when we asked to do so by the NHS Wales Contact Tracing Team). Please note that should you not wish to provide the required information, we are instructed to refuse entry to the site.
NHS Covid19 App - We support the use of the app, with QR codes for checking in located at various locations around the model village. Please note that in Wales checking in via the QR code does not replace the requirement to participate in NHS Wales Test, Trace and Protect described above.

If you're travelling from mainland Wales, follow the A55 over Britannia Bridge to Anglesey and take the first exit towards Llanfairpwllgwyngyll.

Our car park has spaces for over 30 vehicles, plus there is a dedicated parking area for larger vehicles and coaches.
Train - The neareast rail station is at Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllan-tysiliogogogoch (just say 'LlanfairPG' when buying a train ticket).

From time to time we have scheduled maintenance days to allow the continuing refurbishment work of the model village to progress. On a maintenance day it may be necessary to close the model village and/or cafe to visitors as the nature of the work can be disruptive.
THE NEXT SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE DAY IS FRIDAY 6th AUGUST 2021 - both the model village and cafe will close on this day and reopen as usual on the following day.
