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 took our granddaughter last year, she loved it, as we did too, not only is the model village to look around, that has a model train running round it too. There is a reasonable sized play area for the children, and a small, but good sit and ride railway, you have to pay extra for that, but it was... More

We go every year as we love it so much. You can get around in 2 hrs, have some lunch- fine to bring own picnic. Then there is a small play area. The children 8 & 6 still enjoy going.

Visited with my cousins from Bristol in June 2015, we are all over 60. I've been lots of times as I live locally. I love the place, its all very well planned and executed. The model train system is very impressive. Children seem to love the place. Well worth a visit.

I had been planning to visit this place for a long time. Glad our family visited one sunny afternoon. The attraction itself is not very big so one can finish viewing in just over one hour. However we decided to explore the model village without rushing. Amazing models and looks very realistic. We took several pictures of the model village.... More

This is one of the most fantastic nostalgia trips you can ever have. It is truly fantastic. Go back in time to when the sky was bluer, the sun shone brighter. Get there early as it is so much better when there are no people there!

We arrived at 15:30 on a wintery Sunday afternoon which was probably a good time as the lights had just come on. I have been to other model villages but this is by far the best. The attention to detail is incredible and the model railway which runs throughout the village is amazing. It is controlled by an operator in... More

I took my 3 year old son and 1 year old daughter! They love it here. The village is very sweet and has had a lot of thought and effort put into it. There is also a train you can ride on which an additional cost. I don't think you should have to pay extra! This model village isn't very... More
