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!

Bit pricey for how long you'll spend inside, much of the model village could use a good clean also, with gigantic spiderwebs connecting chimneys and forests of algae in just about every water display. The model railway and general attention to detail inside many of the buildings was interesting however.

We went with our two year old toddler to visit Bekonscot. She absolutely loved it and much more than her, we enjoyed it ! It was a childhood dream coming alive. Little model trains whizzing to and fro. Enid Blytons lil model house, the circus, it was really wonderful and yes the mini trees, garden and flowers looked so lovely.

Great afternoon out that both our kids loved. Fantastic detail and a brilliant sense of humour in the models. Beware that the best ice cream stand shut at 4 though!

I took my family here for an outing which was a special treat for my young Grandchildren. they absolutely loved all the miniature buildings and little people in the settings. The attention to detail was extraordinary, with hymn music playing in the church and a thatched cottage roof on fire, complete with fire engines and real smoke! he models are... More

Visited on a day trip to high Wycombe. Great time walking around the village- nice as it has local areas included in village such as the hellfire caves we had previously visited. Loved the house that "catches fire" and the little lakes make the village look very pretty. Also great that the attraction shows you how many people have visited... More

What an interesting place to visit. the models, grounds, small structures and whole area are kept to an impeccable standard. Such a lot of work must go into keeping the plants and trees so well maintained and attention to detail is of a very high standard. It was interesting to peer through the windows of the workshop to see more... More

Meant to write this a year ago. Went to Bekonscot with 2 neices. For an attraction that has been around for ever it still has an amazing charm and the attention to detail of the models themselves is excellent. 3 very happy girls and one was an adult. !!

We regularly visit here and our young son (3) adores it. The whole thing is like stepping back a little in time and that is a large part of it's timeless charm. Highly recommended.
