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

We visited the model village with our Granddaughter and Grandson, both two years old. Unfortunately she had just broken an arm but the model village was a great distraction and they both loved watching the model trains go by and riding on the train. We had a downpour half way through the visit but the restaurant area with the under... More

I took my family to visit, there were 5 of us, 2 adults & 3 children aged 16, 9 & 2 years. We've been many times and always come away smiling. All the proceeds go to charity or I guess some will go on maintenance of the village. Reasonable entrance fee. Good choice of food. Yes it does get a... More

We are on a mission to visit some local attractions that we hadn't had the chance to enjoy. Bekonscot model village is a mini marvel, we were delighted to be guided to free parking in the nearby church for starters! The beautiful flowers and immaculate landscaping and sheer variety of models are amazing, loved the humour of some of the... More

Very good picnic facilities and excellent designated area to leave picnic food whilst looking at the model village. Play area also good for small children. Model village excellent and reasonably priced. The plants and garden area are all kept very tidy. A lovely family destination.

This is a brilliantly executed model village, which has a little bit of everything. You feel like a kid in a candy store spotting all of the different scenes, the sometimes humorous store names and the wide range of displays. Although this is definitely a place for entertaining children, it's definitely worth a visit even without children as it's good... More

Been coming here since I was a kid - however as an adult, I can appreciate the work and maintenance which goes into the little villages! However, I remember as a kid being fascinated by all of the intricate little villages and feeling like a giant! Definitely worth taking the kids at least once, and as an adult to appreciate... More

I came here last year with my hubby and have recently gone back with 3 grandchildren. What a wonderful little place this is - so much to see - you will find something different every time - the cottage on fire, the circus tent, the trains zooming around. It's great, the kids will love it - both times we have... More
