Travel back to the 1930s at Berkonscot Model Village

Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire

Bekonscot is the world’s oldest and original model village and model railway, and a tribute to one man’s eccentricity.

Set in Beaconsfield, Bekonscot Model Museum is a great day out 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 and lakes set in 1.5 acres of award-winning gardens.

Within the village, you will also find a team room and ice cream hut or why not bring your own picnic and enjoy the sunshine? The site also boasts a gift shop located inside a full sized BR mk1 railway carriage where you can buy everything from Lilliput Lane houses to complete dolls houses.
