Bekonscot Model Village is the world’s oldest model village, comprised of six teeny tiny towns. This miniature 1930s microcosm has more than 200 buildings, 3,000 inhabitants and 1,000 animals - just be sure your littluns don’t get lost in there!

Tour the town and marvel at the scale and detail involved. There are lots of little hidden gems in there for visitors to pick out. Spot cable cars, farms, aerodromes, castles, a railway, coal mines and even escaped convicts! Not only is it great fun but it’s all for a fantastic cause. Bekonscot is a not-for-profit organisation which sends its earnings to needy charities around the UK. It’s also educational and shows how ‘they’ did it way back when.

There is also a tearoom and picnic area, 1.5 acres of glorious gardens and a Ride On Railway which weaves its way around the grounds. Top tip: Did you know that Queen Elizabeth spent her birthday here in the 1930s? Your little kings and queens can do the same by renting the log cabin.

I am a very happy and satisfied parent. My 3 year old enjoyed every aspect of the village. She was particularly smitten by the train ride and all the other automatic trains moving up and down the village. 3 hours later, she still wanted more and more and more. I will definitely be spreading the word. Loved everything. Thank you
