OPEN ALL YEAR

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 five 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.


DON'T MISS - Our new 9-hole crazy golf course will add an exciting extra dimension of fun for the whole family. The course is great fun for adults & children and is FREE with admission tickets.

Keep an eye on www.model-village.co.uk for up to date details of all the events at the Model Village
