About Us

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.

There are several extra special features including the 4D theatre – a multi-sensory theatre showing amazing 3D films with surprise special effects to add the 4th Dimension. Throughout the year there are several special events including Evening illuminations, Halloween Horrors, when the gardens and displays take on a spooky twist, and the famous Winter Wonderland sees the park transformed into a snow covered picture-postcard world along with a very special visit by Father Christmas.

    Unfortunately £50 seemed like quite a lot for a family of 4. I felt a little disappointed. Nothing wowed me. Maybe my expectations were too high. Read full review
