About

BABBACOMBE MODEL VILLAGE

Step into a world of miniature marvels!

Bring back those magical childhood memories as you explore a quaint and quirky representation of England through six decades at Babbacombe Model Village. Meander your way through four acres of beautiful miniature gardens and discover many fun characters and animated features - from trains to moving vehicles and even a fire-breathing dragon.

Babbacombe Model Village is equally as famous for its glorious gardens that help to set it aside as one of Europe’s Premier Model Villages. The gardens provide a stunning backdrop for the hundreds of miniature models and animated scenes. For an added twist there are always fun characters to search for as you explore the gardens.

Our 9-hole crazy golf course adds an exciting extra dimension of fun for the whole family. The course is great fun for adults & children and is FREE with admission tickets.

The Mythical Kingdom A land of miniature mythical characters all magically animated to bring them to life. Over the last year, Babbacombe Model Village has been building a new indoor whimsical walk-through, amazing theming and sound effects, along with over 30 animated characters will immerse you into this mythical land.  All the animated characters have been created by hand, showing amazing detail, and skilfully crafted with animated movements. 

Keep an eye on http://www.model-village.co.uk for up-to-date details and for our full calendar of events at the Model Village.
