Overview
More
Open from March to October. Authentic retro attraction that will take you on a trip down memory lane. Beautifully recreated models of Godshill and Shanklin Old Villages as they were in the 1920's and 30's. Passionate about details, the models are true representations of the houses, cottages and pubs you can still see in the 'real world'. NHS Partner Garden supporting the work of the Royal Horticultural Society. The gardens are packed with conifers and shrubs in the Japanese style of Niwaki, that will make you want to dash home and start gardening... Our customers tell us we inspire them or that they would like to take one of our gardeners home with them! Last admission 30 minutes before closing time.

A lovely few hours spent here. Just enough for a morning or afternoon visit. All well kept. Could do with more signage to explain what things were. Toilets on site. Would definitely return.

We love Godshill Model Village - even though we’ve already been 4/5 times before we always spot something new. This year my Daughters and their Nan had great fun trying to spot all the hidden squirrels. They got a respectable 17! There is a little...More

A fascinating place showing parts of the Island in miniature-because it was made a while ago it shows parts of the Island that I remember as a child and there is much attention to detail

The problem with the negative reviewers is they haven’t the imagination to join in with the fun, if you give you will be rewarded here. The attention to detail is very clever and grounds well kept.

For a late afternoon trip out whilst on holiday it was an attraction that was open until 6pm in August and looked very popular. It was very well designed and created. Small fruit trees too. Worth the money and on a lovely evening too. A...More

There are quite a few model villages around the UK. This one is good fun, but as the scale is a bit larger than some others it doesn’t take long to get round. Perhaps if we’d had young children with us it might have held...More

Great for slightly older children with good imagination and a delight in the detail. Loved the model within a model within a model! And the reflection on daily life! Beautifully tended and delightfully staffed!
