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!

HRH Queen Elizabeth II played here several times as a young child. It was a favourite of our royals and for good reason. This place is utterly charming. Some of the Bassett Lowke model locomotives are 80 years old plus and work perfectly. Brilliant British...More

Bekonscot is easily accessible from central London - just off the M40 by Beaconsfield. About an hour by car from Finchley. We visited with our young nephews, who really enjoyed it -even the short very basic train journey. We all enjoyed the diversity of model...More

Even in the rain, this place was the perfect family day out. Our 2 kids (age 3 and 6) absolutely loved it here. The models were excellent and the winding paths through the various exhibits gave a really up-close experience. The little ride-on train was...More

Great outing for that vintage feel: little kids love the moving trains and “being a giant”, older visitors can groan at the many terrible puns on the shopfronts, the ride-on-train is £1 extra but worth it, and the decent size play area is also good...More

Paid several visits here of course, and this year there are several new items, but as before, the lake leaves much t o be desired -the water is green, and can't be healthy for the fish.

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