This is well worth a visit if you’re in Godshill. Little ones love being “giants” among the houses and shops. The model railway is always popular and the trees and plants are so beautifully kept. Highly recommend.

Thanks for reviewing the village of Godshill (but not us, as we have now closed for the season). Glad you enjoyed your walk up to the Church. Best wishes, Penny.

Good few hours spent at model village. Humour and accuracy with a quiz for young ones and a squirrel hunt for all. A blast from the past and well worth a visit.

Been here before but I’m sure it’s grown. Its very well maintained and a joy to go around. The added advantage is that there are a number of covered areas you can shelter from any rain in.

The kids all enjoyed running round spotting things in the model village and completing the quiz. There is a lot of care taken in the setting of the scenes and lovely planting round the gardens. Worth a visit.

Nice size to walk around in an hour, and a lot of nice detail. Children (7,5 & 2) had a great time spotting the squirrels hidden around the models.
