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!

Fabulous model village, attention to detail is amazing. Son (aged 2) adored it and we went round twice. Probably only need 2 hours max.

Had a lovely day out. I haven’t been to Bekonscot Model Village since I was a child and so it brought back lots of memories that I could share with my family. Great day out.

I had found the price a little off putting (£6 for my two year old), but decided to go anyway as the reviews were so good. I wasn't disappointed. A child who likes to be pushed everywhere was up and out if the buggy almost...More

Visited here with our granddaughter 30 years after taking our own children. Now even better and beautifully maintained. Highly amused by the shop names, do stop and read them.

Returning for the first time in 20 years, I was pleased to find this place unchanged and still a delight. It's a wonderful window on 1930's England, complete with the boy with a saucepan stuck on his head in casualty and the woman blacking the...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.
