About
Authentic retro attraction that will take you on a trip down memory lane. Beautifully recreated models of Godshill and Shanklin Old Villages as they were in the 1920's and 30's. Passionate about details, the models are true representations of the houses, cottages and pubs you can still see in the 'real world'. 2020 will be our 5th year as an RHS Partner Garden supporting the work of the Royal Horticultural Society. The gardens are packed with conifers and shrubs in the Japanese style of Niwaki, that will make you want to dash home and start gardening... Our customers tell us we inspire them or that they would like to take one of our gardeners home with them! Last admission 30 minutes before closing time.

Lovely trip
May 2021 • Couples
We recently visited and spent a lovely hour walking round enjoying all the miniatures. Loved spotting places we had eaten during our stay.
Friendly staff both on the ticket booth and in the shop.

We enjoyed the visit, fun activity for kids, well organised and simply quite interesting. Bonus points for very friendly staff who found our lost property and contacted us to let us know about it.

Amazing place to spend few hours
Oct 2020 • Family
Godshill model village is a superb place with amazing attention to details. It easily takes couple of hours to admire the beauty. There is ample parking available near by so that is not something to worry about when visiting.

Good Value
Nov 2020
We visited on a wet Friday in Oct halve term just before they shut for season . Easy to park in village just down the road and free! . Good value to get in and good Covid measures in place boxes marked up rules explained and people adhering to rules .

The model village is a good size we did it under an hour a little quicker due to rain but on a nice day you could easily spend two hours here . Models are of the island and in good condition and interesting with some good sound effects .

If in the area worth a visit

Squirrel searching fun for all!!!
Oct 2020 • Family
Always one of our favourite trips on the island. The children (3 and 5) love looking for the squirrels and it’s become an obsession for the adults to find all 26! We beat our record this time with 20 but will keep coming back until we find them all!!!

So much better than I expected.
Oct 2020
If you have wee ones, this is an absolute must for an hour of fun. The models are incredible and they have set up a treasure hunt, so the youngsters were thoroughly invested. We went on the wettest of days and were totally absorbed enough not to notice the grim weather.

Worth a visit.
Oct 2020 • Couples
The model village has been really well thought through to a very high standard. It was good fun spotting places we had visited over the weekend such as the Shanklin Chine. There is even a model village of the model village. The little extras - such as the organ playing in the model church were really sweet. We would have stayed longer but the heavens opened with a hailstorm! Recommended.
