Bekonscot Model Village and Railway is the world’s oldest original model village. Set in Beaconsfield, just outside of London we are a popular day attraction for people of all ages.It was opened in 1929 and it’s a great place to bring the family and stomp around like giants! There are six model towns, a huge Gauge 1 model garden railway, ride-on railway, remote-controlled boats, castles, lakes and industries in 1.5 acres of award-winning gardens.It's a great family day out, and it's your chance to be a giant in a miniature land of adventure, hidden away in a 1930s timewarp. It’s a big day out full of really nice small things and we'd love to see you soon!

We have been looking forward to taking the youngest member of the family (aged 2 1/2) for ages and today we had a glorious sunny summer afternoon in a toddler's paradise - and Mum and Dad enjoyed it too. It is a perfect day out: lots to see in the model village, a ride-on train (costs extra), ice cream parlour... More

It's an annual must see attraction.... Just £28 for a Family ticket and it provides hours and hours of fun and not just for the children who love the trains that are going around the model village, but the adults can have a laugh at the many model buildings where for example the green grocer is Chris P Lettis or...

We visited with our 2 1/2 and 5 1/2 daughters. They were instantly taken with the displays and especially the trains which run throughout the different settings. The attention to detail is amazing and there is lots to see. The play park is a good size and had just the right amount and style of equipment. The free parking is... More

The entire village is quite compact but that also means you can let the kids roam around on their own without fear of them getting lost.

This is a really good day out, we went the day after the chos of legoland and found it lovely and relaxing. There's a quiz to do as you go round which my daughter really enjoyed. It's reasonably priced and the cafe ( we took a picnic and just brought ice cream but I read the cafe menu) seemed to... More

We tend to visit here every year, using the Tesco Clubcard deals vouchers. It's a lovely model village and our children really enjoy watching all of the model trains going along the tracks. There is a miniature train for an extra £1 per person and a children's playground, also picnic tables for lunch. There is free parking in the church... More

It's been 24 years since the wife and I last visited Bekonscot and the improvements in that time are most noticeable and numerous. Whether you are a single person, a couple or a family with children you will definitely enjoy yourself there as there is something for everyone. Thoroughly recommended.

It's not a cheap treat, but we all enjoyed ourselves. I loved the play on words for the naming of some of the stores "lee.key, the plumber".

What a great place to visit. Parking can be a bit of a problem although you are allowed to park in the church across the road. The ticket office is and gift shop is a restored railway carriage novel idea. once in you can have a little ride on a small train for £1 great for the kids. Although the... More

I have been coming to Beconscot model village since I was a child and on the numerous occasions I have always spotted something different. It doesn't matter how many times you visit, the beauty here is that it is magical for everyone. The detail in the models and the well laid out and well kept model village is a wonderful... More
