252 London Road South, Lowestoft,
After over 40 years of having track and trains stuck up in my loft I decided to regenerate my old childhood hobby. I visited this shop whilst visiting the area and was overwhelmed by the amount of stock. After a 10 minute chat with the very helpful lady I was hooked purely due to her knowledge. I wish there were more model shops just like this.

I visited Parrs while on holiday in Lowestoft. My interest is slot cars and although Parrs only stocks Scalextric of which they have a great selection, I was amazed by the choice for model trains and the selection of scenic items such as trees and shrubs.I visited 3 times in the week we were there. The lady and gentleman who run the shop are amazing and always very helpful. I hope to visit again. This is what all model shops should be.

I always go to the shop when visiting Lowestoft. They have always got IN STOCK everything I require. There should be more shops like Parrs in this country. Anna is always very friendly and helpful. Parrs is well worth a visit, even if it is just to see what "model shops" used to be like.

A fantastic model shop 10/10! I go there every year and the assistance is remarkable and the amount of stock is fantastic, what ever you're into! Steam, diesel, electric, OO or N gauge!

Excellent model railway shop, especially for OO & N gauge, excellent assistance, never seen so much stock in one place, I could spend hours, if not, days there. They are a bit more expensive than mail order. But its so nice to wander around & look for your needs! Also stocks arts & craft equipment. I'll be visiting again next week.

Like something from harry potter! This is a magical shop and anna is very knowledgable. If she hasn't got what you want, she will order it in. I cannot reccomend parrs highly enough.

I try and call in monthly. Excellent ranges of all model railway stuff. If you can't see it ask - Everything is there somewhere or it will be ordered promptly, as I found when I required a lot of electrical switches.
