Interest in Wroxham Miniature World is growing

0

You could describe it as a “model attraction”.

Wroxham Miniature World, based in Station Road West, Hoveton, claims to be the country’s largest indoor modeling center with some of the world’s largest model trains on permanent display.

And its manager, Robert Green, 31, said interest in model trains and toys of all kinds has skyrocketed since the start of the pandemic as many people have found more time for their leisure time.

Mr Green said: “There has been a strong uptake since the lockdowns started. Hornby [model railways] said their sales have exploded and we see a lot of people coming here looking for inspiration. “

Mr Green said when his father, Sean Green, opened the site in 2012, it was aimed at enthusiasts, but now families make up most of their visitors.

Exhibits include Lego dioramas, a vintage arcade, slot cars, dolls, model ships and model trains that recreate different eras and parts of the world including Japan, the Alps, Holland and the Midlands in the 1960s.
