Description: Bekonscot Model Village and Railway is the world’s oldest original model...
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!

The model village is well managed and the upkeep probably demands a lot of effort, so well done to all the support staff. The model village is built of really miniature models of real life (people, houses, locations) and bears close resemblance to a lot of tradtional stuff. A great place if you are a photo-enthusiast as well. The kids... More

My husband and I took our two year old here. I was worried it would go over her head but she loved it as did we. I loved the humorous touches. It's all so well done. We visited in November but even on a chilly day it was good fun. The play ground is a great added bonus.

This i find a nice attraction for all the family, younger kids will love this up to younger teenagers age. It's a bit pricey to get in but it is Beaconsfield folks where new build houses average £6-7Million. They have a small train but wasn't running the day we went. There's play areas for the kids and cafe and places... More

Really enjoyed visiting this model village. Our boys who are train mad, loved chasing all the trains around the massive circuits here. Though the site isn't huge, the paths are laid out in such a way to snake around to ensure you see everything which takes can take a while. There is a great area for eating, picnic tables outside...

I've been to Bekonskot a couple of times recently with my toddler. We both very much enjoyed it. The model trains really bring it to life, and a lot of thought has gone into the detail, with smoking fires, moving circus acrobats, lights on in the models at dusk etc. I'd highly recommend it.

This is a magnificent model village, a town in miniature! Small children will love it, as will the adults. Play area, tea room, gift shop - not cheap, but a great place to spend a sunny day.

A few weeks ago I took my grandson to see the model village making him the 3rd generation of our family to delight in this place. He was inevitably immediately captivated by the trains running around the village and was happy just chasing them around. Of course, as an adult I love the place too! All in all we spent... More

I always came here when I was a kid, and now enjoy taking my son here. It's got so much more then it had back in my day, so it's even better now. You can stay for as long as you want but can see the whole thing in 40mins or take all day to marvel at every little detail.... More

Went as a child and revisited with my child 40 years on. My daughter loved it and so did I, again. She was eager and excited to see everything and took delight in the mini animals as well as all the houses and people. I did go slightly reluctantly thinking that it may ruin my child hood memories but it... More
