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!

I remember going here as a child and returned with my own children who both enjoyed running around the model village especially the trains which ran all the time and provided endless enjoyment. Detail in the model village is high but it is starting to look a bit tired. There is a playground which the children enjoyed as well including... More

A small model village place. Tickets are quite expensive for what it actually is. I came with my niece and nephew and they loved it, but I would only recommend it for young children, and even then only if you're desperate to find something to do!

Visited with a 5 year old and spent a great 2 hours. Arriving at 3.30 we got discounted entry. I had been meaning to visit for ages often driving past the sign so mission accomplished. The attraction is well maintained and laid out and nice play area for the younger party member. The model trains are just fab!

This place is brilliant! I hadn't been before but my 8yo suggested we go as she enjoyed it so much when she last went (aged 5!) It's 5mins walk from Beaconsfield station and offers excellent value for money at approx £15 for the two of us. We were there over 3 hours and went round the village 3 times, seeing... More

Our family visited the model village when I was 10. It charmed and delighted us, so many things to see, and so much detail. We went round three times that blissful summers day in 1960. I always wanted to go back, and vowed I would, and did so last week. It brought a tear to my eye when I saw... More

Love this place. Had an annual pass when my children were smaller and every time we visited we noticed something new. All of the models and the gardens are very well kept and the children love to watch the model trains moving around. There is a great playground / climbing area for the children too and the cafe serves reasonable... More

Have visited several times since I was a child. Now I am taking mine and it never disappoints. Always something new to see. Well worth the money will be going again when family visits us. Short walk from the station.

Set in the 1930s this village is so much fun to walk around. The detail is amazing, right down to the shops in the towns. Theres a great little quiz for the young ones to find things around the village... but this ended up as us adults racing eachother to complete it 😂. Altogether a great day out

This is a lovely place and full of charm. We arrived later in the afternoon so got in for half price - £14 for a family. Out kids loved it.
