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!

After staying at the crazy bear hotel we decided to visit this local attraction before setting off home. It was very busy so it took a while to get round. Someone had great fun naming the shops and hotels which amused us. Well worth a visit.

I remember going here when I was a child and it was just as magical 25 years on. Such a lovely place to take children. Very clean. Staff were friendly. There is a play park but aimed more at younger children I think. The model village is amazing and well maintained. There are model trains that run all around the... More

I have wanted to go to Bekonscot for many years and I finally managed to get there this summer. I am so glad that I did. A miniature world where there is something new to see in every model. Many of the models have moving figures from the ladies cleaning windows to the traction engine rolling the tarmac on the... More

Having been here as a child (over forty years ago) I had distant memories of those days out and this revisit did not disappoint. Our group ranged from 3 to 50 and there was something for all of us to do. Great though has been put into picnic arrangements including a storage area and undercover eating area. Car parking is...

What a lovely place to visit! Took our 12yr old daughter and my parents here today. The whole place is very special, the tea shop, facilities and cleanliness is spot on, ice cream shack is great if a tad expensive. Then there is the model village, I've not seen anything like it. Attention to detail is fantastic from the moving... More

We where suppose to go to Bekonscot, on the day of arrival to London, but due to the tube-strike, we had to cancel it that day. Instead we went there on our last day in the UK. The weather was worse, it practically rained the whole time, but we where positive, it wasn´t that bad - and we where almost... More

I was very excited to make my two and half year old son here recently as I LOVED coming here as a child. I am so glad that it still has much of the stuff that I remember from 25-30 years ago. He was mesmerised by the trains and fairground and enjoyed the refurbished park immensely. We took a picnic... More

We stopped at Bekonscot model village on our way home from a family holiday in Kent and we were travelling to Birmingham. We had seen the model village signposted from the motorway for months and finally decided to make a trip of it. Well...what can I say? Absolutely fantastic!!
