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!

I took my grandchildren and luckily it was a nice warm day and enjoyable visit. Much smaller than I remember but it might be that I have grown larger over the years.

Loved going here as a child so soon as my son was walking I was keen to get him there as well! Glad to say the smile on his face as he followed the path and chased the train brought back memories of my childhood. Still a reasonable price and very well maintained. Lovely summers day out.

We took our 6 year old granddaughter for a visit and Grampy enjoyed it as much as she did. Full of very detailed period activities. Nice Waitrose and free car park nearby.

Bekonscot is a World-renowned model village. It is a delightful place to visit either with or without children. The village has a remarkable air to it as it is firmly stuck in the first third of the 20th Century in terms of the style of its building. It has recently acquired a scale model of the town hall in Langres,... More

Great place to spend an hour or so with kids. They especially love the model railway running around the whole village. We have an annual pass and visit every few months and our 2 and 4 year old grandchildren never seem to tire of it.

This is a nice place to spend an hour or two. It isn't an all day attraction but good to stop by and take a look. Kids love it and the models are really detailed.

A great place to visit with young children, our 7 year old really enjoyed the quiz which really made her stop and look at all the houses and shops in detail. The trains keep young and old children fascinated and look out for the fire fighters tackling the house on fire. A proper eccentric English village and Home Counties experience.

What a lovely well kept family fun attraction !. The entrance fee was 1o pounds which we thought was good value for money especially as some of the monies go to charity. The tea shop was very sweet and the food menu was very reasonable. We had a soup with bread and that was £2.30 each. The only thing it... More

Chose this place for a drive to get used to my rental car and really enjoyed it. Very quaint and interesting- One should especially note the play on words in the names of the stores on the models!
