Miniatura Park is now closed

Miniatura Park has miniature scenes of famous landmarks including Buckingham Palace, the White House, the Statue of Liberty, Easter Island, the Taj Mahal, Stonehenge, the Little Mermaid, the leaning tower of Pisa and Michelangelo’s statue of David, to name just a few.

The twelve acres of landscaped gardens are filled with fabulous flowers, shrubs and ornamental planting. A wooden walkway to the swamp leads to the world of dinosaurs, giant Jurassic monsters tower above the trees. There are sound effects added for extra realism. The Little Cornwall Lake and Lighthouse has miniature boats to steer.

Other outside attractions include a toddler corner, a pirate ship and a new shack wharf. There are earth sculptures of dragons and giants hiding in the gardens and the Little Cornwall Beach Patio, featuring the world's only Cornish pasty mine! In the Miniatura Garden Arboretum is a collection of miniature trees. Ant and Dec are on the rope bridge here and Batman and Robin are near the palace. Cornish gardeners lie snoozing beneath the bushes. Visitors can make and paint their own model people, who they can take home or leave to live in the park.

Inside is the huge Crows Nest Play Zone to explore. Four Seasons Row is a street in an indoor model gallery. Another new attraction is a crazy golf course through waterfalls and barrels, canyons and caves.

Miniatura Park is on the edge of Goonhavern Village five miles from Newquay. Visitors should follow the "World in Miniature" signs from the A30.
