Overview

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!

Family day out with my wife and children 10 & 5 . It's very well kept and the children loved the models especially the train's. We spent about 2 1/2 hours and really enjoyed it probably not recommended for families with teenagers.

It was quite busy considering the weather- but it was half term. The guys in the car park at the church were helpful. Only one lady at the ticket booth so queues. The actual model village is a delight, so well designed and landscaped, and...More

There are picnic tables on a small grassed area and a cafe. There is room to keep your buggy with you around the village. There is also a good play area.
