About Us

A World of Miniature Marvels!

Babbacombe Model Village is a miniature world is full of model scenes and all kinds of goings-on, there is much humour and many animated displays. The village portrays English life and culture over the last 6 decades and is sure to bring to life those childhood memories!

Over 400 models of houses, stately homes, factories, shops, entertainment venues and environmental features. There are a variety of architectural styles from medieval through Shakespearean to Victorian, along with railways, vehicles and some well-known monuments and landmarks. Not forgetting, of course, 13,000 miniature people who live in the village.

Adults love the humorous representation of British life over the last six decades and the award-winning gardens. Children love all the miniature characters and enjoy following the spotter sheet to see what they can find (pick up your free spotter on arrival)

See who you can spot at Celebrity Mansion!

To add an extra dimension of fun, humour and puns prevail throughout the park, some very obvious, some very subtle, but a quick visit is never enough to spot it all. See if you can you spot the man mowing the lawn, or can you spot the ghost in the tower - many visitors in a hurry miss it!

There are several fun indoor features too, such as the 'Little Enders' soap set, the Victorian Snowy village, the World of movie miniatures and a 4D Cinema showing 3D films with extra special effects.
