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!

It is brilliant. Simply awesome. Immersive. Captivating. Mesmerising. Noble. As good as real. Beautiful. A work of art. For the entire family and yet not for profit. All profits go to charity.

A little hard to find at first but follow the signs in the streets leading to it. But it’s worthwhile when the attractions first appear in your view. It’s a quaint attraction reflecting back to the 1930s when it first opened to the public. It’s...More

I came here in the 1950's and 1960's, several times as did our kids in the 80's. It's still a wonderful place to bring children. It has grown since the 80's and looks a lot better cared for - the model railway, with a lot...More

Wonderful place for little ones, especially if they like trains. The model trains dart around the village and there is a larger train you can ride on for a small fee. The village is a slice of England past and very nostalgic, however the facilities...More

I had fond memories of this place from when I went with my parents and so I was keen to go back with my kids. I was afraid that it would be naff, but how wrong was I... my kids LOVED it! The attractions haven't...More

This was our first visit to Bekonscot and we wished we hadn't left it so long. My 7 year old loved it but would have enjoyed it when he was younger too. The models are well preserved and have lots of tiny details such that...More

Thank you for your enquiry. The paths are relatively narrow but it is suitable for pushchairs and prams provided they are not too wide.

Hello. I am not sure. I saw kids and babies here together with the grownups. Hope it helped.
