While the majority of the sights and sounds are very much life size, we couldn't resist a visit to Mouse Town. A small tent houses a model - which must be around 1:12 scale - of a street scene in darkness.
Amongst the shops are numerous mice, scurrying around and generally enjoying themselves.
|Mouse Town is home to a large collection of real mice.|
We've seen Mouse Town before but obviously each time the mice are doing something different so it's always enjoyable, perhaps more for us than others because we love the model. There's something magical about a mouse disappearing through a pub doorway though.
There was a tense moment when a couple of the creatures were balanced precariously on a balcony (cue shouts from nearby children of 'he's going to jump') but fortunately they decided against the giant leap to the ground.
The film below gives you an idea of what you can see in Mouse Town, although the reflection of the glass and the lighting make it difficult you can still make out the odd furry friend.
