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! « less

After 60 years I have finally got to visit this amazing place. Our children went on school trips and it was only a sudden brain storm whilst looking for somewhere unusual to take our granddaughter out for a different place to visit during the Easter holiday that my memory cells came to life and we found ourselves at Bekonscot Model...

Bekonscot Model Village is a wonderful, charming place to visit. It is like stepping back in time, to days gone by, when life had an innocence and was uncomplicated. It's not like its larger modern day competitors, it's just a charming, fascinating place to visit for "children" of all ages. Bekonscot reflects how life used to be and brings together... More

We take my Grandson at least twice a year, there is always something new or something we missed earlier. My grandson loves the trains, he is 2 yrs old and and runs from one side of a path to the other to see the trains. I would recommend a visit to anyone who has not been

I was last here with my children about 35 years ago but as it was a nice sunny day I persuaded my partner that it was worth a visit (keeping fingers crossed). We were not disappointed and considering the prices that some other attractions charge, it was pretty reasonable. Back in the 1970's, they had kept the model village attractions... More

I visited with my 13 year old ,10 year old and my nostalgic husband who had been when he was young. A little pricey but my youngest daughter loved the attention to detail and the little trains. Good for younger children with a little ride on train and small play area. All very clean and tidy. It is quite small... More

We have been to this little model village a number of times with small children and enjoyed it every single time. The place is not huge, easy to walk around even for little children. Beautifully laid out and immaculately maintained, the entire model village is very well thought out with a great attention to detail . The fire station ,... More

We traveled here from Bedfordshire with our Tesco clubcard vouchers. I brought along my 2 boys aged 3 and 7 and Grandad aged 74. We easily spent over 4 hours here. First time around we enjoyed the models and trains. Then we purchased the children's quiz and completed this on our 2nd viewing. We brought a picnic along with us... More

Took my wife as my Daughter and I have been a couple of times, She totally loved it, as does my Daughter. We went during the week which was even better as there wasn't loads of people and we got to meander round at our leisurely pace and took hundrede of photos. A great attraction and it was good to...

We've been going to Bekonscot regularly with our two sons for years. We have purchased an annual pass on several occasions as you only need to go about 6 times a year to make it worthwhile and that is quite easy if you live locally and our children never loose interest. They particularly like the trains that continually travel round... More
