John , Totton. Southampton - 23 Apr 2018 - Three & a half Stars
The staff are very friendly and provide a smile! They have product knowledge, are very helpful and willing to spend time with you to make any decision. The stock of varying manufactures is quite diverse and prices are competitive. The model railway is quite a good attraction and maybe it ought to be free? It is sad to enter the shop, look around at what is available, then be attracted to the extensive model railway and then to be asked for payment to enter. I am aware that the model railway is full of action and requires maintenance, but perhaps look for another avenue of revenue to financially support it. It is an excellent attraction, in a tucked away venue in Mevagissey and well worth a visit, for families on a tight budget. I know that once children enter the shop, almost an Aladdin`s cave, they want to explore into the model railway!! Overall, for any railway enthusiast, modeller or a family of young children, it is a `must to visit` venue!!

Julian , Hythe, Kent - 30 Mar 2016 - No Stars
I visited the World of Model Railways on 29th March 2016 looking forward to seeing the operating model railway and to buy some of the many different china clay wagons that they say on their website are held in stock from all the popular mainstream manufacturers. The entry to the model railway was £4.50 and is far too much to ask for the very poor display and i did not see one china clay wagon for sale in the shop. the stock was generally very poor. I cannot recommend this attraction/model shop.
