Emmerdale Visitor Experience

As part of Continuum Attractions and ITV’s ‘Emmerdale Studio Experience’ at Burley Road Studios in Leeds, Cod Steaks were approached by Scruffy Dog to produce and install a ¼ scale model of the Emmerdale village.

Located in the heart of the attraction, fans of ITV’s popular soap will instantly connect with the meticulously crafted miniatures of buildings such as The Woolpack, David’s Shop and Bob’s Café. Every detail, from the sign posts, chimneys and telephone box, was accurately captured by our skilled artisans and model makers - of who scrupulously referred to site photographs and the original plans of the full-scale Emmerdale set throughout the build.

All buildings were created with a timber carcass and subsequently given a stone-clad appearance using Jesmonite resin with a hand-painted finish. The fictional village would not be complete without landscaping to the grounds and the gardens, and as such our model makers took particular detail in ensuring all trees and foliage correlated to those in used in the original set.

Visitors can experience the warmth of village life as they are invited to walk through the model village as part of the guided Studio tours.
