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 visited with two friends and my 2.5 year old daughter. It's £10 for adults and children (any child over 2 is classed as a child up to 16y) was £6. The model village is small and compact but lovely - lots of things for children to see with it all being at eye level. I especially liked the zoo,... More

Visited the model village today with my 2 children (9&5) and my parents. The sun was shining and we had such a lovely day. There is a place to store picnics so you don't have to carry them around, which is really handy. Kids loved the place there is so much to look at and the attention to detail is... More

Visiting with young children was really good, just seeing the excitement on their faces, being bigger than everything for once.. lovely place to visit. after 3.30 it is cheaper to go as it only really takes about 1-2 hours to visit, so you can save a bit of money too

Get there early as it can get busy (and the free car park gets full), but it's good value for money, there is a short trained ride for an extra £1. There is a play park and a restaurant with reasonable prices. My son loves it and regularly asks to return.

My boyfriend and I took his nephew, he loved running around after the trains that move around the whole model village and pointing out the planes. We loved the vintage ear on display and the different 'stages' from a seaside town to a coal mine. There was a little park for the kids to blow off any extra steam and... More

From 1.5 years onwards this captivating, enthralling and fun for kids as much as young at heart adults. 2 hours+ and then a second round is a real day out trip. On a sunny day take money for the cafe and you should hope to tear way your tiered party after a fantabulous day or afternoon. It is reasonably priced... More

I am a nanny and we come here atleast twice a month. You are always greeted by a friendly parking attendt in the church car park. The staff are friendly. The children i look after love it as they are train mad.

A lovely spot. The attention to detail of the buildings is impressive. Great for kids and the young at heart. Reduced admission price if you go after 3.30pm, can see it all in an hour or so.
